NC high court to hear case of $14K hospital bill
The case of a man who was stuck with a $14,419 bill that he calls inflated and unreasonable after three days of care in a Charlotte hospital is going to be heard by the North Carolina Supreme Court. The case, scheduled to be heard by the state's high court on Monday, is upsetting officials at the state's major medical centers. Robert Talford argues that there should be a trial to determine whether the cost of medications was reasonable. He says the hospital, which he declined to identify, charged 24 times more for the medication than what a local pharmacy would charge.
