COVID-19 hospitalizations are getting more expensive for patients

Posted by Sami Thalji | Aug 21, 2021

Covid-19 patients who end up hospitalized, over 90% of whom are unvaccinated, will likely be on the hook for their medical bills, according to a new KFF analysis. This is a clear indication that the private sector is moving in the same direction as the public sector, essentially requiring people to get vaccinated to maintain access to healthcare and other goods and services. You can't blame insurers here because most of the money being spent on hospitalizations is coming from unvaccinated people so they are making a business decision to tell them get vaccinated or you will pay out of pocket. Insurers are under no obligation to cover these expenses that could be prevented by free preventative medicine. These bills are likely to be very significant and if you get the experimental treatments being pushed by Florida's Governor you will likely end up with another mortgage payment in the form of a huge medical bill that will probably be unpayable for most. This may be the first domino to fall in what may become a wave of bankruptcy filings among the unvaccinated.
