On one of the preemie forums I'm a member of, someone posted about the difference between a fullterm baby and a preterm baby in regards to the final hospital bill. That got me curious since I had 27 week twins. Wow, am I grateful for good insurance.

Samuel: $1,758,334.44

We haven't actually paid a dime yet since everything is still being worked out with insurance. The NICU is out of network (but it's the only NICU so it's not like we have a choice) -- so lots of appeals and such. Because of the boys' low birth weights they qualified for Medicaid, but that insurance doesn't kick in until everything is finalized with our primary insurance.
