I got the bill from the emergency room about my foot. I paid $130 the night I went, and have been paying $100 here and there for the orthopedist to do an exam and a wrap. The emergency room bill comes out to the following:

Having a physical tell me I need an x-ray, and that after it’s broke I need a splint: 713.42
Having a splint put on: 398.34

Minus a contractual adjustment of 166.76, I owe $945.

My company has switched to high-deductable plans, so this break is going to cost me around $2500.
