Don't get sick in Cancun

...unless you're independently wealthy.

A fellow came into our ER last night who had had a problem in Cancun. It involved alcohol, drugs, and... well, you get the idea. He had been seen at a hospital there. He had the paperwork with him.

They charged him $1000 upfront just be seen. Credit card, I assume. Pay up, or you won't get in the door.

They gave him some IV fluids, some minor medication, and kept him there a few hours. The total bill from the ER came to about $9800.

Whoa. And you thought American medical care was expensive.

Whatever you do, DON'T get sick in Cancun.
