Arizona: A Woman Scorpion Insurance Paid 57000

September 6, 2012 by  

Arizona: A Woman Scorpion Insurance Paid 57000, An Arizona woman is wondering what hurt more: getting stung by a scorpion or seeing her hospital bill after treatment. Marcie Edmonds says the bill from Chandler Regional Medical Center was more than $83,000. That includes two doses of anti-venom at nearly $40,000 per dose.

The Arizona Republic () says Edmonds’ insurer has paid more than $57,000 and the suburban Phoenix hospital is asking Edmonds for the balance of about $25,000. http://bit.ly/RD6bX8

The 52-year-old Ahwatukee (ah-wha-TU’-kee) Foothills resident was stung in June while opening a box of air conditioner filters in her garage.

Edmonds says an emergency room doctor told her about the Mexican anti-venom Anascorp that could quickly relieve her symptoms, but she was never told about the cost. Chandler Regional says Edmonds’ bill represents the out-of-network costs for her treatment. -AP
