I wont be there, but i'm curious at how much out of pocket expenses you have since insurance does not cover TCI fully. The only place I will go anymore is TCI and I'm curious what it will cost me.

Hi Mr Chiari,as far as the cost we have just stop counting,we owe thousands but,we know there just is not no other choice.I had surgery at TCI and my insurance covered most of the hospital cost but,not even half of all the doctors cost from TCI.My daughter's insurance is different then mine and her's is an hmo that is trying to cover 4,000 out of 78,000 and that is just one bill,everyone has different charges depending on how long they were there and what they had done.My daughter has had complacations after ever surgery she has had so she is always in the hospital longer then normal and she has had to go back into surgery during the same hospital stay so there are many charges.We know there is no way we will ever pay this bill off and we have just come to except this,and just do what we can.I hope this helps, sheila Pa
