The first doctors visit…

>Well the first pediatricians visit. We got the medical insurance statement for that first visit, and the check up cost the insurance $220 plus the $20 co-pay.

Fair enough maybe, but the visit was 10 mins, which included a nurse weighing the baby and measuring the baby and then the doctor prodding the babies pelvis, running a nail up the spine and down the ribs to check for reflexes, listening to the heart and lungs and then looking at the ears and eyes.

How the hell does that work out at $220? That’s over $1300 an hour, WTF.
