I'm gonna say there's an error somewhere in there. We paid about a grand after insurance's part and we stayed four nights.

What hospital? I would have to see that bill before I believe it.

Our first child.. 1993 Madison County General, no complications.. $8,000.

The cost I've heard the last 2-3 years is in the 15k range.

We had our 2nd child in April. Our part with 20% co-insurance was $12,000.

they wanted $8K to do a one night sleep test on me. I can't imagine what a kid would cost.

Had a child in '05 here in Nashville. The bill just for the doctor was $3k spread out over time or $2600 up front. Hospital stay for three nights was $6k at Centennial and almost $9k at Baptist. Lucky for us our Dr delivered at both hospitals. If you paid lump sum upfront both hospital numbers were discounted. I know the numbers because my wife did not have maternity insurance.

I don't see the words "health insurance" in this post. Does this mean WE are paying the $82k?

ours ended up being about 7,500 total.

1,000 deductable. Then around 1,300 more out of pocket that insurance didnt cover.

Since then, our insurance has changed, and we now have a 5,000$ deductable. Seeing as how it will be about 6,000 minimum just for the hospital portion. We are on hold until a new insurance plan rolls along.

Thanks Obama.

Something definitely doesnt seem right. We had our first in July. He was sent to NICU at Vanderbilt for 4 days and released on the 5th day. With Labor,delivery, and NICU bill it still wasnt that high. Ours also included a high priced ambulance ride from Cookeville to Nashville.
