US patients without health insurance pay up to $ 74,000 for COVID-19 treatment

This calls into question the effective treatment of people who do not have health insurance and cannot afford treatment

People who are hospitalized with a coronavirus must be prepared to pay between $ 42,486 and $ 74,330 if they do not have health insurance or if their insurance company decides that COVID-19 treatment is not included in their medical package, according to the Independent FAIR Health Insurance Company.

For a six-day hospitalization, uninsured patients will have to pay about $ 73,300, and insured patients will have to pay part of the $ 38,220 that medical institutions ask for insurance companies.

The COVID-19 pandemic pandemic has affected almost the entire world. According to the latest WHO data, over one million people have been infected and more than 50,000 have been killed.
