Coronavirus-infected Americans may need tens of thousands of dollars to pay for treatment, CNBC reported.
“Those people who get to the hospital with a coronavirus infection should be prepared for the fact that they will have to pay from $ 42,486 to $ 74,310 if they do not have health insurance or if their insurance company decides what they received medical care is not included in the list of services required for their insurance, “CNBC said, citing data from an independent organization, FAIR Health.
