In medicine, day 3 of a hospital stay means you've been there 2 days,

Yes, but they will bill you for three days; If you get there after dinner and leave before breakfast, they bill you two days even though you were there less than 24 hours.

I was in the hospital for three hospital days and got billed for three days in the ICU @ $17,000 day. The irony was that I was not even in the ICU at any time. Nowhere near. The ICU is on the second floor near second avenue, and I was on the 6th floor near third avenue. I know that hospital. Friends of mine work there.

I pointed this out to my insurance company and they said they would straighten it out. They sure did. They waited three months and paid $51,000 for services not rendered.

An then they bitch about insurance fraud.
