NPR and Kaiser Health News: A Woman's Grief Led To A Mental Health Crisis And A $21,634 Hospital Bill

HCCI data was cited in an NPR/KHN Bill of the Month story. 

From the article: 

"Hospitals generally charge uninsured people much more than they charge people who have insurance.

That's less than half of Feilen's bill."
