A senior was shocked to discover she owed nearly $10,000 for hospital room stays is now in talks with her insurance company and one of the hospitals. Vera Morgan, 90, spent seven weeks in two separate Toronto hospitals earlier this year after a severe case of the flu. She thought her insurance company, Great-West Life, would cover the costs of her semi-private and private hospital rooms, but when she was released from the hospital she found out it would only cover a portion.

Morgan was initially treated at St. Joseph’s Health Centre, where she was billed around $3,600 for a semi-private room before being moved to Bridgepoint Health. St. Joseph’s told a leading TV channel that  Morgan would not be charged for her stay and would be reimbursed for the payment she’d already made. “Any charges she would have received associated with her accommodation at St. Joseph’s Health Centre should not have applied in this instance,” the hospital said. Morgan also said she had an amicable conversation Great West Life representatives by phone who told her the company will try to find a quick resolution to the issues.
