“Last summer, Matt Anderson cut his finger on a knife while doing dishes. He’s a college student, and his roommate, a biology major, suggested that he go to the emergency room. He had recently used the same knife to cut raw meat and thought Anderson’s finger might get infected.
Anderson estimates he got to the emergency room around 11 pm. A nurse saw him shortly after midnight and cleaned his wound. A doctor came by a little later to apply liquid stitches to his finger. Anderson went home around 1 am.
“I saw a nurse for maybe five to 10 minutes and a doctor for maybe five minutes tops,” he says.
A few months later, the bills arrived at his parents’ house: $2,782 in total.”
