Default How much does an ambluance cost?

Edit: Yes, it does say "ambluance". Sorry


Yesterday morning I woke up in the ER. An ambulance picked me up, and I didn't have a room, just a bed in the hallway. The hospital stay was no more than 5 hours. I don't think they did anything to me.

I do realize I'm an idiot and I'd rather be in the ER than jail.

Does anyone know how much this will cost? I woke up in Northwestern Hospital Chicago.

ps, no isurance

That still sucks. It's because of YOU Patron! This was definitely the "wake up" call I needed.

When I was hit by a car I was transported to a trauma center that was 12 Miles away from the accident scene. Although a hospital was down the block.


I was charged $560.00 It was a per mile rate of almost $50/mile. Plus fuel charge. Mind you this was 10years ago.

Just laying down in the hospital is going to rape your wallet.

When I was in an accident about 3 months ago, they told me an ambulance was on its way. I asked how much it costs and was told $750. I said keep that **** parked, I'll drag my *** somewhere.

aw crap, this was probably my most expensive night of drinking.

I didn't even give them my information, but I did sign the hospital release form. I ran out in a hurry because I had work in an hour. Hopefully they can't find me. This doesn't go on your credit anyway right?

You Sir, have a serious drinking problem.

I mean ****, if you're going out to get ****-faced at least have some friends with you that can make sure you're alright.

Actually you're right, I do have a problem. My friends were with me but they said I just disappeared. I woke up with about 10 missed calls. They said they figured I took a cab home, since my car was still in the street.

i thought they only charged for an ambulance ride if you HAD insurance, and if you don't, they use it as charity. maybe i'm dreaming?

That's all I actually remember.

My friends filled me in and said that they met me up and we did about 6 more shots each, we all bought more rounds. We ended up going to the club and drinking some more. My buddy said that they were even hammered.

They tell me one moment I was there and then I just disappeared.

Tell the hospital you are self pay/student and see what they'll work out. A lot of places will drop your bill a decent amount.

That's a good idea, do you think it'll work if I show them I'm paying my student loan?

Most hospitals will do payments either way but a lot of them will write off a considerable amount as charity.

I just hope it's not over a thousand. Do they go through your pockets and check your wallet for your information? I didn't even give them my address or phone number.
