I was attacked by a fox, not to be confused with a human female fox. I was walking my dog and it came from someplace and wanted a piece of me. I beat it away three times finally my dog chased it away. Thank god he was not hurt. I have to pay my 150.00 deductible for each visit. Didn't think 12 shots would cost that much.

I am currently undergoing the rabies vacc as I had contact (held, etc.) with a positive kitten. I called BC and BS (I am a federal employee) and she told me the shots would be covered, but I had to pay the ER co pay each time of $125. Does that sound right anyonw? I am retiring in 1 month and cannot afford a huge medical bill!

My daughter was scratched by a raccoon and went to the ER. This was the cost of the rabies shots that night. I was shocked. Blue Cross insurance adjusted it down by $1800. Still was unbelievably high. With other doctor charges, came to over $5000 out of pocket. For a couple of scratches.

My 23 year old uninsured son was 'exposed' to a bat on a university campus. He was not concerned--after all, I myself had caught (with gloved hands and cloth barrier) over a dozen bats in our home in central NJ over the years and never was harmed. I respect bats--they eat mosquitoes--and there hadn't been a human death from rabid bats in over 50 years in NJ.But my son's fiancee freaked out,so my son called me and asked if I would pay for his ER visit.How could I say no? To my shock, Princeton ER charge my son $9,000 for the rabies series, which I know for a fact only cost $400.00 max! Fortunately, the university agreed to cover it. I understand that the univ. lawyers ultimately refused to pay the outrageous $9,000 charge because it was unreasonable. BUT ORDINARY PEOPLE ARE STUCK WITH THESE BILLS. I WOULD HAVE BEEN STUCK WITH IT!
Read Time Mag's Mar 04 2013 article, "Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us" by Steven Brill. We Americans have been betrayed by cruelly dishonest hospitals that file as 'non-profit' but are making HUGE profits, which they then use to pay hospital presidents huge salaries ($1 -$7 million/year) snd build huge medical complexes which look like Dubai. Yet they are not increasing life expectancies of Americans. This is money stolen from Americans who are ill and helpless in the face of our health institutions' outrageous, dishonest charges to patients and/or their insurance companies (and in the end, we all pay for these overcharges to insurance companies).

I was bitten by a stray kitten shortly before Christmas. Because we were not able to capture the kitten to quarantine it, I had to get the vaccines. I did not get the immunoglobulin shots as 48 hours had passed before seeking medical attention. I received a series of 4 shots between Dec 21 through Jan 4. Out of pocket expense was a $50 co-pay, but I just found out they billed my insurance over $35,000 for the shots.

Maxed out my out of pocket expenditure at $2,000, but Hosptial billed insurance company $14,624.03 (yes, that is the correct). This was for the first round of shots. There were three more rounds of shots, but did not pay for those since I had maxed out the out-of-pocket expense with the first round. Had to do same for wife and child, so multiply x 3.

My wife and two sons are going through the vaccine treatment now, it is based on weight for the shots the total above is the cost for all three one visit, and cost will be same each one. When you get shots you get first round, then you go back 3 days later from then, and again 7 days later, then 14 days later, and last 21 days later a total of getting shots five times over a period of time. I will say wife weighs 150 and for fast track care through er one shot trip 6,370.45 so you can see the cost is not cheap. Best wishes if you get it, and also to note they all say it burns from shots and makes area sore for few days.
