The Brass Tax: Surgery EOB

My Explanation of Benefits  (EOB) came yesterday.  It was jaw dropping.  Here is the break down:

Amount Billed by NYU: 73,755.42
Amount Allowed by Aetna: 38,082.06
Amount Paid by Aetna: 41,960.75
My co-pay: 300.00

Shocking, isn't it?  As Charlie pointed out, there is a reason the insurance companies 
make patients jump though so many hoops.  It is really expensive.  Seeing this yesterday made
me even more thankful that everything was covered and I was able to have the VSG.  For only 
300 dollars!!!  

What about you other sleever-readers?  Was your bill as shocking as mine?
