12 Shocking Things You Didn’t Know About America’s Health Industry

12. One Day In The Hospital Costs Over $18,000

If you have to stay overnight in the hospital for any reason, you could be paying around $18,000, according to Obamacare Facts. These numbers have increased slightly since 2012 (when the cost was over $12,000), and could be considerably more depending on the healthcare facility where you’re staying. These prices are considerably higher than the cost of a day in the hospital in other countries. A day-long hospital stay is less than $500 in Spain, and less than $1,000 in Chile. Of course, most Americans can not afford this, which is why many of their health conditions go untreated for years, and often become chronic.
