She Suffers a Rare Illness and When Her Emotions Overwhelmed Her During a Medical Appointment, She Expected Sympathy. Instead She Got the the Bill!

Caring sister takes her little sister to the doctor and she becomes emotionally distressed about her rare illness. Instead of receiving sympathy, they handed her a bill!

America’s Problems in the Healthcare System

A viral Twitter post by famous YouTuber Camille Johnson reveals an unbelievable incident that exposes the problems in America’s healthcare system. 

Camille’s tweet caused a frenzy online, with over half a million likes in just one week.

A Tragic Condition

Camille explained that her sister, tragically, has a rare disease and has always found it difficult to find proper care.

During the appointment, overwhelmed by frustration and helplessness, she couldn’t help but shed a tear. 

But instead of offering help, the doctors added a heartless $40 charge to the bill.

Emotional and Helpless

“She has a rare disease so she’s been really struggling to find care. She got emotional because she feels frustrated and helpless. One tear in and they charged her $40 without addressing why she is crying, trying to help, doing any evaluation, any prescription, nothing.”

Tears Cost Money

What’s even more mind-boggling is that the crying charge was higher than the cost of crucial tests like vision assessments, haemoglobin tests, health risk assessments, and even a blood sample. 

Gratitude

Camille also took the opportunity to express her gratitude to Senator Bernie Sanders for his work on healthcare reform. 

@BernieSanders i’ve always wanted to tell you i love you. Maybe you will see this. Thank you for your work”

She hoped her message would reach him and shed light on the need for significant changes in the system.

A Furious Reaction

People were furious and shared their own experiences of unfair medical charges.

One Twitter user explained, “2014 I was charged $17400 medical bill for daring to call an ambulance when I had fever and i was alone. I wasn’t strong enough to go get off-the-counter medication myself.”

Even users outside of America shared their disbelief, “In Malta you pay nothing for healthcare. I mean everything is free, absolutely everything. It’s not the best but it’s free.”

This incident is a stark reminder of the problems in America’s healthcare system.
