Two years ago I suffered flash pulmonary edema due to an allergic reaction to a drug I was given in the hospital which caused heart failure and death. After I was brought back to life I spent almost 3 weeks in intensive care. I was worried about the cost of all of this and thought it would have been better if they had let me die. The cost was thousands of dollars but because I had a Medicare Advantage plan, I owed nothing. Recently, I had back surgery and owed nothing. I live pay check to paycheck. I would not survive without it.
