Emergency medical care outside of home country--How much did it cost you?

Jump to last reply

I am curious. We just returned from Sicily where we had an unplanned (and aren't they all?) visit to the Pronto Soccorso (emergency care facility). Plus, for many of us in the United States it is now open enrollment time when we can choose or change our health insurers. So, both of these two things together got me thinking.

If you had emergency care while visiting another country, how much did it cost overall and what did you end up paying? I am posting this on the Europe board since it is most active but am interested in worldwide experiences.

Just to make clear: Our regular insurance will give us some coverage while out of country, and we have a long-standing travel insurance policy that includes medical care. So, my question is not whether to buy coverage that will take care of us while traveling. I am more interested in knowing how much you were charged for your emergency medical care and what kind of potential bills travelers could be looking at.
