Hospital charges vary wildly depending on where you live.

Recent news from Department of Health and Human Services is a wake up call to all of us, especially in California.  We all knew hospitals charge “arm and a leg”, but I am still suprised of the report.  One of the example they provide is an impatient joint replacement procedure that costs $223,000 in Monterey Park, CA.  This same procedure costs $5,300 in Ada, OK.  I have provided link to the MarketWach news article.
