Taxpayers, hospitals, insurers taking the hit ó for now
A COVID-19 patient who suffered a 141-day stay at a local [Medford, Oregon] Asante hospital generated a $3 million bill.
The almost five-month stay in the hospital included time spent on a ventilator, according to Asante Finance Director Heather Rowenhorst.
She said the patientís insurance covered $500,000 of the bill, and Asante absorbed the rest. Asante hopes to get at least partial reimbursement from the federal government.
To protect patient privacy, Asante wonít disclose whether the patient survived the ordeal.
