I came across this today...a hospital bill from 1955 after the birth of a child in NY. Yes, a long time ago, but wow!

But in 1955 if a person made $10,000 a year it would have been equivalent to probably $75K today.

Wow. That's what now? The cost of a single aspirin in a hospital?

I have a similar one and mine is much cheaper than that. I was born in 1963 at Wiesbaden Air Force Base in Germany. My father was in the Army (101st) and my Mom worked for the Government. The hospital bill for being born on base was something like $2.19 Lol

A few months back I had outpatient surgery at OBX Hospital to remove one kidney stone. Cost was $14,725.52.

My right hip replacement surgery in 2016 was $58,740.12 for the total bill. I was in the hospital for a total of 28 hours
