Woe unto those who end up hospitalized in Hawaii without insurance

by Larry Geller

This is an Australian article warning about the high cost of serious illness should one end up in a hospital in New York. But Hawaii got honorable mention. According to this article, we have the honor of being the second most expensive place in the country if you don’t have insurance to pay for your bed.

"Hospitals in popular US destinations for Aussie travellers, like California and Florida, charge up to $8,500 per night in intensive care, while the same treatment in a Hawaiian hospital can set you back up to $10,500 per night," she said.

"But New York City is by far the most expensive, with the amount per night priced between $16,000 and $21,500." [news.com.au, 12/1/2009]
