$100 Scorpion Sting is $83,000 in U.S.

 Just goes to show how we are being royally fucked by the corporate health system. This is unchecked capitalism my friends. There is nothing wrong with making a buck. But as far as I'm concerned, there is a problem with fucking us at the drive-thru. Free-market my ass. This is a monopoly. And Obama-care is part of it. Not that there is a better choice right now of course. Do you really believe that Romney will repeal it? Bwahahaha!

Marcie Edmonds was tearing open a box of air-conditioner filters in her garage last June when she felt a sharp sting in her abdomen.

The 52-year-old Ahwatukee Foothills woman had never felt a scorpion sting before that day. She had no intention of seeking medical help, but within an hour of the sting, Edmonds' mild tingling sensation worsened with throat tightness, blurry vision, darting eyes and tense muscles. She could not walk and had trouble breathing.

With the help of a friend, she called Poison Control and was advised to go to the nearest hospital that had scorpion antivenom, Chandler Regional Medical Center. At the hospital, an emergency room doctor told her about the antivenom, called Anascorp, that could quickly relieve her symptoms. Edmonds said the physician never talked with her about the cost of the drug or treatment alternatives.
