$19,320. Two 1 liter bags of saline per week, total 8 a month.

$19,320 per month. This is a bill I received last month for my mother's twice a week saline infusion treatment. Some blood tests are included (nothing unusual, just to see the treatments are working).

My mother's insurance is terrific. In general, we have had minor out of pocket bills to pay for her care.

Our part to pay is $550 a month. This will be difficult to manage, but we will do it. But isn't this excessive (never mind the $19.3K) for 8 1 liter bags of salt water a month?
