Man, you were CHEAP. My last baby, in 2012, was billed at least $30K. For a relatively normal birth. We had to cover around $3500 of that out of pocket.
Circumcision, if chosen, is done by a plastic surgeon at that hospital and costs $3K - our of pocket, up front cash or credit cards only. Many insurances now do not cover it.

Yeah, none of my boys had it done. I saw no reason.

PS: I love that they charged for the BC and bracelet...hah! I guess there is still one bargain left, I think our kid's BC's cost $10 each from the state after :-D

PS2: Love that Dad was billed and Mom gets no last name...lol Nowadays they bill the baby in person!!

Doug. You're worth every penny. So considerate of you to leave them a tip.

I'm sorry. 20% of nothing is still nothing. Whittled down to a nub as everyone these days gets their cut.

Paid in kind I'm assuming, from the smug tone of your comment. ;0)
