If you cut finger in New Jersey, think twice before going to emergency room

If you cut finger in New Jersey, think twice before going to emergency room

Prices are getting higher for everything you need these days. But in some cases it may be worth the piece of getting someone to do your home repair work.

At least that turned out to be the story for Bayonne’s Baer Hanusz-Rajkowski. He cut his middle finger with the claw end of a hammer, and now he must feel like using that finger.

NBC New York reported that Hanusz-Rajkowski cut his finger doing some repairs, and went to Bayonne Medical Center’s emergency room to see if his injury needed stitches. The man was charged for a tetanus shot, bandaging, and the ER visit. Grand total? $9,000.

Bayonne Medical Center CEO Dr. Mark Spektor said Hanusz-Rajkowski’s insurance company United HealthCare was responsible for his high bill. According to Mail Online, he said Carepoint Health bought the Bayonne Center and turned it into a for-profit operation. Carepoint did not renew United Health Care’s pricing system, and United does not have reimbursement prices.
