U.S medical bill rant

Elizabeth • Mommy of one beautiful girl, and twin boys (:
Just got a bill in the mail for anesthesia and or pain management services. Almost $2500!!! WTF!! I thought insurance covered it, and besides, it was an emergency csection. Did they expect me to not have an epideral? one that didn't even work for that matter. It says that they filed a claim with my insurance and the following balance is my responsibility. Apparently they think people have $2500 laying around. Sorry. I'm just really aggravated by this.
