Submission + - $819 Crutches 1

SandwhichMaster writes: "Prior to my foot surgery I needed to pickup a set of crutches. My insurance was charged $100 for the crutches and $719 for the "Physical Therapy", which basically consisted of setting the crutches to my height. The whole visit was at most 15 minutes. I called both the hospital and my insurance company, but both refused to do anything. My insurance covers about 90% of the cost, and I'm not really that concerned about the $80, but the whole process still seems ludicrous.

Is there anyone I can report this to? Are U.S. health care costs really this out of control? Has anyone else had similar experiences?"
