Gouged in the Emergency Room

I recently had to take my 11-year-old son to the emergency room because he had a foriegn body in his eye and I could not remove it. After waiting from 9:30 PM to 12:30 PM, the ER doc put fluorescent eye drops in his eye, said she couldn't remove it either, and that we needed to see an ophthalmologist. The ER bill was over $1150, and only about $500 was covered by my insurance.

Health Care Reform will benefit all of us who are gouged by outrageous bills, no matter what our line of work, nationality, or financial situation.
