A woman was suffering from a pain in her abdomen. Along with a battery of other tests, the doctor ordered an X-ray. She went into the doctor’s office to review her case. When she entered, the doctor was talking on the phone and the lady noticed the X-rays laying on the desk. The woman smiled as a kitten walked around the edges of the X-ray, staring down at the picture. The lady thought it was cute, although a bit odd that the doctor would have a kitten in the office. Anyway, she talked to the doctor and decided on a course of action, and the lady went home. Two days later, she received the bill in the mail. For some reason, the X-ray cost $5000! She immediately called the doctor’s office to find out what was going on. They informed her that the cost was extra for the cat scan.
