Mom Stuns TikTok as She Reveals Huge Hospital Bill for Baby’s Birth: “America is a joke”

In a now viral TikTok, @shannonmayor revealed the cost of her visit to the hospital: $ 50,816.02. Although this was the grand total, the hospital bill further itemized how much Shannon’s insurance plan covered and what the final amount she owed, including coverage.

A new mom was shocked to receive the absurd hospital bill for the birth of her baby.

Fortunately, Shannon’s insurance covered the majority of the debt so she only had to pay $ 250.00 of the large bill.

The TikToker titled her post: “I didn’t expect the sum to be that high.” So far, the video has received over 7.8 million views.

While Shannon doesn’t have to pay the staggering amount, the 12-second video in the comments sparked a debate that left many appalled and frustrated with the American healthcare system. In addition, Shannon’s video highlighted the unfair disadvantage of people without health insurance.

In response to the comment above, the new mom replied, “This post makes me leave America so much lol. I mean, I’ve already done it, but especially now. “
