Texas Patient’s $109K Hospital Bill Cut To $332

Thursday, I pointed you to a story about an Austin patient who had a very unexpected heart attack, spent four days at a hospital for surgery and treatment, and was later balance billed for about $109,000. Friday, Kaiser Health News chimed in with an update:  The bill has been reduced by St. David Medical Center to $332—and officially paid off.

Drew Calver, 44, and his family get to put the episode behind them. Here’s the story with the update, and the original is right here.
