$1.1 Million Hospital Bill 181 Pages Long Given to 70-Year-Old COVID-19 Survivor
Michael Flor was the longest-hospitalized COVID-19 patient to date, staying 62 days. He came so close to death that a nurse held a phone to his ear while his family said their final goodbyes. Now, the 70-year-old Flor has been hit with a hospital bill that almost gave him a heart attack: for more than $1 million! "I feel guilty about surviving," he says. "There's a sense of 'why me?' Why did I deserve all this? Looking at the incredible cost of it all definitely adds to that survivor's guilt."
