CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Robert Dennis spent weeks in the hospital, fighting and beating the coronavirus. He’s now back at home, working his way through recovery, but he’s not done with the virus entirely just yet. The high school teacher just received his first itemized statement for the cost of his care: $840,386.94.

科羅拉多州—羅伯特·丹尼斯(Robert Dennis)在醫院里度過了數周時間與新冠病毒作斗爭。目前他已經出院回家,正在努力恢復,但是他還沒有完全擺脫病毒困擾。這位高中教師剛剛收到了他的第一份醫療費用賬單:840 386.94美元。


The statement covers Robert’s time at Sky Ridge Medical Center, where he was in the intensive care unit and intubated for two weeks.

賬單包括羅伯特在Sky Ridge醫療中心住院期間,他在重癥監護室接受的兩周插管治療費用。

“His meds just at the hospital are a quarter million dollars,” Suzanne said.

蘇珊娜說:“她丈夫在醫院的藥費就有25萬美元?!?

What is not included is Robert’s three weeks at Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, or his wife’s trips to the emergency room when she was fighting the virus. The couple estimates their total bills to top one and a half million dollars.

這還不包括羅伯特在斯伯丁康復醫院三個星期的住院費用,以及他的妻子進入急診室的治療的費用。這對夫婦的治療費用總額預計將超過150萬美元。


The couple has insurance. They plan on calling to make sure that they are covered early next week.

這對夫婦買過保險。他們打算在下周早些時候向參保公司進行聯系,以確認他們能否可以報銷。

The Colorado Division of Insurance tells Denver7 that if their department regulates the insurance, that patient will be protected by a state emergency regulation. Also, if the hospital that treated a patient received CARES Act funding, they are not required to send surprise bills for COVID-19 treatment.

科羅拉多州的保險部門告訴丹佛7電視臺,如果他們部門監管保險,那名病人將受到州緊急條例的保護。另外,如果治療病人的醫院有《冠狀病毒援助、救濟、經濟保障法案》(簡稱cares法案)的資金資助,那么醫院就不該向病人寄出資料新冠病毒的賬單。

On March 10th, Vice President Mike Pence told reporters, “All of our major health insurance companies have now joined with Medicare and Medicaid and agreed to waive all copays, cover the cost of all treatment for those who contract the coronavirus, they’ve committed to no surprise billing, and they’ve committed to encourage telemedicine.”

3月10日,美國副總統彭斯告訴記者,"現在我們所有大型健康保險公司都已經和醫療治療以及醫療補助聯合起來,同意免除所有雜費,以及所有感染新冠病毒患者的治療費用,他們承諾不會寄出令人驚異的賬單,并承諾鼓勵遠程醫療。"
