CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Robert Dennis spent weeks in the hospital, fighting and beating the coronavirus. He’s now back at home, working his way through recovery, but he’s not done with the virus entirely just yet. The high school teacher just received his first itemized statement for the cost of his care: $840,386.94.

科罗拉多州—罗伯特·丹尼斯(Robert Dennis)在医院里度过了数周时间与新冠病毒作斗争。目前他已经出院回家,正在努力恢复,但是他还没有完全摆脱病毒困扰。这位高中教师刚刚收到了他的第一份医疗费用账单:840 386.94美元。

“Seeing that number yesterday for the first bill it kind of took your breath away again,” Robert’s wife Suzanne, who also beat the virus, told Denver7.

罗伯特的妻子苏珊娜也感染了这种病毒,她告诉丹佛7电视台说“昨天看到首张账单上的数字时,我差点窒息。”

The statement covers Robert’s time at Sky Ridge Medical Center, where he was in the intensive care unit and intubated for two weeks.

账单包括罗伯特在Sky Ridge医疗中心住院期间,他在重症监护室接受的两周插管治疗费用。

“His meds just at the hospital are a quarter million dollars,” Suzanne said.

苏珊娜说:“她丈夫在医院的药费就有25万美元。”

What is not included is Robert’s three weeks at Spalding Rehabilitation Hospital, or his wife’s trips to the emergency room when she was fighting the virus. The couple estimates their total bills to top one and a half million dollars.

这还不包括罗伯特在斯伯丁康复医院三个星期的住院费用,以及他的妻子进入急诊室的治疗的费用。这对夫妇的治疗费用总额预计将超过150万美元。

“It’s scary. I don’t care how much you have covered. It’s scary to see that kind of number and not really know,” Suzanne said.

“太可怕了。我不知道保险能报销多少。看到这些数字真是不敢让人相信,太可怕了。”苏珊娜说道。

The couple has insurance. They plan on calling to make sure that they are covered early next week.

这对夫妇买过保险。他们打算在下周早些时候向参保公司进行联系,以确认他们能否可以报销。

The Colorado Division of Insurance tells Denver7 that if their department regulates the insurance, that patient will be protected by a state emergency regulation. Also, if the hospital that treated a patient received CARES Act funding, they are not required to send surprise bills for COVID-19 treatment.

科罗拉多州的保险部门告诉丹佛7电视台,如果他们部门监管保险,那名病人将受到州紧急条例的保护。另外,如果治疗病人的医院有《冠状病毒援助、救济、经济保障法案》(简称cares法案)的资金资助,那么医院就不该向病人寄出资料新冠病毒的账单。
