美国住院时间最长的新冠肺炎患者出院 花费110万美元

作者: 发布于:2020-06-22 08:08
西雅图一名因感染新冠病毒而住院时刻最长的男人因住院而收到了110万美元(约合人民币778万元)的账单。70岁的迈克尔•弗洛差点因感染新冠病毒而逝世,但他恶作剧说,他62天的住院费用高达110万美元,这也差点要了他的命。弗洛在入院时已参加联邦医疗稳妥,这意味着大部分账单将由稳妥付出。 A Seattle man who was dubbed1 “the miracle child” when he recovered from the coronavirus after being the longest-hospitalised patient has now received a $1.1m bill for his lengthy2 stay.   Michael Flor, 70, almost died from the novel virus, but he joked his hospital bill also almost killed him after his 62-day stay rounded up to $1.1m in fees.   “I opened it and said, 'Holy'!,” the Washington resident told the Seattle Times.   The 181-page hospital bill listed all the treatments and fees Mr Flor racked up while staying at Swedish Medical Centre in Issaquah, and the official amount owed stands at $1,122,501.04.   Fortunately for Mr Flor, he was on Medicare when entering the facility, which means a majority of the bill will be covered.   The US government could also foot portions or the entirety of the bill because Congress set aside $100bn to help hospitals and insurance companies amid the pandemic. But officials have warned this amount might not be enough, with estimates reaching $500bn in costs to treat US coronavirus patients.   Mr Flor told the newspaper he held some “survivor’s guilt3” from surviving the virus, which often attacks the upper respiratory system. The hospital bill only added to that guilt.   “I feel guilty about surviving,” he said. “There’s a sense of ‘why me?’ Why did I deserve all this? Looking at the incredible cost of it all definitely adds to that survivor’s guilt.”   The bill included nearly 3,000 itemized charges the man accumulated while staying in the hospital.   When breaking down the bill, $408,912 was charged for the 42 days Mr Flor was in an intensive care room equipped with a special isolation4 chamber5. Then an additional $82,215 was charged for the ventilator he used for 29 days.   Two of the days when Mr Flor was in the hospital involved his hearts, lungs, and kidneys all failing, bringing him close to death. Those two days racked up $100,000 in charges as doctors worked to save the man’s life, according to the Seattle Times.   Part of Mr Flor’s guilt comes from the understanding that someone is paying for the $1.1m bill.   “It was a million bucks6 to save my life, and of course I’d say that’s money well-spent,” he said. “But I also know I might be the only one saying that.”
