Hospital bills

My mother arrived in Auckland today bringing with her our mail. Amoung the mail was a nice bill for the emergency surgery done on the 16th of September. I called the hospital in an attempt to get what was supposedly owing to us from the first surgery. We were told that we were over charged by $1500. They supposedly charged for a private cataract when he had a vitrectomy.

I found out today this was not the case. When I tried to credit the $1500 over to the new bill, they told me everything was itemized correctly and we were actually under charged.

I can't put a price on keeping my husband alive, but holy crap.

Surgery tomorrow.
