I was looking something up on our Carefirst member portal when I came across this –
This is the negotiated amount Carefirst paid on our behalf this year. I can’t begin to imagine what the actual billed total must be. I am so thankful that we have excellent health insurance. No matter what our copays or coinsurance amounts, they pale in comparison to the exorbitant cost of treating cancer. I believe that everyone should have health insurance. Hopefully like your car or home owners insurance, you will never need it for anything catastrophic. I certainly never thought we would need it to this degree.
