God damn our medical costs are so out of whack in the US. The hospital billed $50k for each of my relatively minor ankle surgeries but accepted $25k each from my insurance. For the same the of surgery medicare would reimburse less than $10k and the hospitals accept it. I really think they just pull a number put of their ass and hope some dumb schmuck pays the whole thing. I can't comprehend what it must be like to need something major done without insurance.
