Oh, you mean the $750 ambulance ride to the hospital?
I wondered the same thing. People do get charged for EMS in this country. Insurance will pay — if emergency transport is covered…
How about airlift? I think that’s a cool $30,000 to the person who the helicopter is called for JUST TO LAND the helicopter on the highway next to the car crash.
I think the person who wrote this just doesn’t have the reference point, or didn’t do any actual research on the comparisons she made.
Obviously, it doesn’t change the fact that this is something that needs to be discussed and dealt with… it just isn’t a good idea to compare things one has no clue about. As clearly is the case regarding BOTH fire and rescue services AND the Nazi Holocaust.
