This answer depends on so many factors: in which area of the country the person lives, how much the hospital charges for various services, whether or not the Woman had a vaginal or caesarian birth, whether or not anesthesia was consulted (for an epidural or other medication), the length of the hospital stay, whether or not there are any complications, and the type of insurance the person has. Hospitals tend to charge a large sum, and the insurance companies agree to pay a certain portion of that. Most insurance companies make their subscribers pay a portion of the bill--sometimes this is a fixed amount per year, and other times, it is a percentage of the total (such as 20% of each hospitalization). It is not surprising to have a $10,000 bill for a completely normal, uncomplicated pregnancy; but again, insurance usually pays the majority of that. If a person does not have insurance, often it helps to discuss this with a hospital and the physicians who will be involved in advance and try to come to an agreement on how much she will be responsible for after the delivery. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

I just received my hospital bill...it was $34,000!!! My insurance paid this, of course, but I found it so outrageous that labor and delivery (normal and uncomplicated) could cost so much!

If your pregnancy is normal with no complications, the hospital should not cost that much and you can go on a payment plan with them. Everything is negotiable and do the same with your hospital bills. Michael FindYourPolicy.com

Hospital bills vary, they vary with the types of tests done, the quantity of tests and whether you stayed over night. The bills also vary depending on what type of insurance you have, if you have any at all. In general, hospital bills are expensive.

Sadly nurses do not have bills, they are billed with the expense of the rooms they work in at the hospital. These things really must change.

It doesn't cost the Mint anything because the Mint makes coins, not bills. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing prints bills. Anyway, the new purple and gray bills cost about 4 cents each to produce.
