Some people said that you can haggle the price from hospital. The way hospitals charge people base on the procedures. If the hospital you go to has more complex procedure, the cost usually will be higher. So, you can haggle the price with the hospital if they willing to deal with you. For instance, if you just had a baby, the cost usually $10,000 or above; you can haggle it down to $7,000 if you talk to the right person.

That would be nice. I just had a baby 5 months ago. Guess we would have to know who the right person is. I, myself have only haggled over cars and the like. Not a hospital bill.
