WASHINGTON: A 70-year-old American man who nearly died of Covid-19 has been billed a heart-stop $1.1 million for his hospital expenses, the Seattle Times reported Saturday.

华盛顿:据《西雅图时报》星期六报道,美国一名险些死于新冠肺炎的70岁老人日前收到了高达110万美元的住院费用账单。

Michael Flor was admitted to a hospital in the northwestern city on March 4, and stayed for 62 days -- at one point coming so close to death that nurses held up the phone so his wife and children could say goodbye.

3月4日,迈克尔·弗洛住进了该市西北部的一家医院,住院62天。在此期间,一度濒临死亡,护士们帮忙拿着手机,让他和妻儿道别。

But he recovered and was discharged on May 5 to the cheers of nursing staff -- only to receive a 181-page bill totalling $1,122,501.04, he told the newspaper.

他在接受《纽约时报》采访时表示,他康复了,5月5日,他在护理人员的欢呼声中出院,结果却收到了长达181页、总计112251.04美元的账单。

That includes: $9,736 per day for the intensive care room, nearly $409,000 for its transformation into a sterile room for 42 days, $82,000 for the use of a ventilator for 29 days, and nearly $100,000 for two days when his prognosis was life-threatening.

其中包括:重症监护室的费用,每天9736美元;将其改造为无菌室的费用,42天40.9万美元;使用呼吸机的费用,29天8.2万美元;以及病情危及生命的那两天,费用近10万美元。

Flor is covered by Medicare, a go nment insurance program for the elderly, and should not have to take out his wallet, according to the Times.

据《纽约时报》报道,弗洛可以享受政府为老年人提供的医疗保险项目Medicare,不用自己掏钱。

But in a country where health care is among the most expensive in the world -- and the idea of socializing it remains hugely controversial -- he said he feels "guilty" knowing that taxpayers will bear much of the cost.

但是,美国是全球医保最昂贵的国家之一,将其社会化的想法仍存在巨大争议,奥巴马说,知道纳税人将承担大部分费用,他感到“内疚”。

"It was a million bucks to save my life, and of course I'd say that's money well-spent ... But I also know I might be the only one saying that," the Times qued him as saying.

弗洛说:“一百万美元救了我的命,当然我得说这钱花得值……但我也知道,我可能是唯一一个这么说的人。”

A gigantic plan adopted by Congress to keep the American economy afloat through the coronavir s shutdowns includes a $100 million budget to compensate hospitals and private insurance companies that treated COVID-19 patients.

美国国会通过了一项庞大的计划,以在疫情期间维持美国经济的运转,其中包括一项1亿美元的预算,用于补偿为新冠肺炎患者提供治疗的医院和私人保险公司。
