Couple Gets $1 Million Bill For Baby’s Birth

Couple Gets $1 Million Bill For Baby’s Birth, Australia’s foreign affairs minister is looking into the case of a Sydney couple stuck with a million dollar hospital bill after their daughter was born in Vancouver last August.
John Kan and Rachel Evans had taken out travel insurance and extra coverage for Evans’ pregnancy without realizing the policy would not cover the birth or the baby.

They were about to return to Australia after their B.C. vacation when Evans went into premature labour at the airport.

Piper Kan stayed in the neo-natal ward of the B.C. Women’s Hospital and Health Centre for three months and the bill ended up being about $1 million.

Australian media reports the couple negotiated a payment plan with the hospital at about $300 a month, which would take 278 years to pay off.

Evans tells the Herald Sun newspaper they don’t begrudge the bill because they have a healthy daughter.
