Michael Flor, 70, from the city of Seattle, was recovering from the coronavirus after 62 days in the hospital when he received a bill of $ 1.1 million, reports The Seattle Times.

The bill in question added the whole process of combating the patient’s contagion, nicknamed the ‘miracle child’ for his incredible recovery.

The long list of cares included 42 days in a sealed, isolated ICU room at a cost of $ 10,000 a day and connecting to a ventilator for 29 days, for a total value of about $ 82,000.

In another 20 pages, two days were reflected in which the doctors “put everything you could imagine”, because his lungs, heart and kidneys almost stopped working, which added another 100,000 dollars to pay.

The patient confesses that the bill almost caused him to cardiac arrest, but luckily he most likely will not have to pay at least most of the bill due to special financial regulations related to COVID-19.

More than $ 100 billion has been set aside by the US Congress to help hospitals and insurance companies defray the costs of the pandemic, in part to encourage people to get tested and seek treatment (including who don’t have insurance).

Flor may not even have to pay out of pocket for her Medicare Advantage insurance policy, which could add up to about $ 6,000.
