He remained intubated for two weeks in intensive care because he had Covid-19. And when he returned home, the hospital bill of over $ 840,000 was waiting for him. It is the figure that Robert Dennis, teacher of the Colorado, was seen to be delivered after hospitalization at Sky Ridge Medical Center. “To look at it we ran out of air again,” he said Suzanne, the teacher’s wife, to the broadcaster Denver7. “THE drugs who hired in Hospital they cost a quarter of a million. ” There couple has health insurance which should cover i costswhich could reach $ 1.5 million overall.
The patient needed 3 weeks of rehabilitation in a specialized center. And also his wife, infected by the Covid in a milder form, she had to resort to hospital treatment. The couple should not claim to take over the account, as they could take advantage of coverage guaranteed by a Colorado law. In addition, the hospitals that received the funds provided by the Cares Act – the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, an emergency package of 2.3 trillion dollars (equal to 11% of GDP) approved at the end of March by Congress – should not send the invoices to patients.
Support ilfattoquotidiano.it: never like now we need you.
In these weeks of pandemic we journalists, if we do our job with conscience, we do a public service. This is also why we are proud every day here at ilfattoquotidiano.it to offer hundreds of new content for free to all citizens: news, exclusive insights, expert interviews, surveys, videos and much more. All this work, however, has a great economic cost. Advertising, in a time when the economy is stagnant, offers limited revenues. Not in line with the access boom. This is why I ask those who read these lines to support us. To give us a minimum contribution, equal to the price of a cappuccino per week, fundamental for our work.

But now we are the ones who need you. Because our work has a cost. We are proud to be able to offer hundreds of new content every day for free to all citizens. But advertising, in a time when the economy is stagnant, offers limited revenues. Not in line with the boom in access to ilfattoquotidiano.it. This is why I ask you to support us, with a minimum contribution, equal to the price of a cappuccino per week. A small but fundamental sum for our work. Help us out! Become a supporting user!
