5 min ambulance ride is $1,238.00?!

PLEASE SHARE: I am a teacher with Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance. I had a 5 minute city ambulance ride where a male EMT mocked me and said, “You probably have anxiety not covid.”

I already knew I had covid since this was my second time to the ER. I could barely breathe, but in between my gasps for air, I tried to say, “I know I have covid.”

For this 5 minute ride, where I was mocked by a sexist EMT, I was charged $1,238. But since I had covid, I was supposed to be charged $0.

This is our terrible for profit healthcare system in the USA.
