This $153,000 rattlesnake bite is everything wrong with American health care
Dated July 20, 2015, but, but this is Obama Care.......?
Earlier this month a guy named Todd Fassler was bitten by a rattlesnake in San Diego, KGTV San Diego reports. In itself this isn't terribly unusual — the CDC estimates
that roughly 7,000 to 8,000 people a year get bitten by a venomous
snake in the United States. And somewhere between five and six people die from these bites each year.
raised eyebrows, though, was Fassler's hospital bill — all $153,000 of
it. KGTV reporter Dan Haggerty shared it on Twitter.
