Inflation in health care costs
Shown above is a bill that shows the cost of a visit at Beth Israel Hospital. We think it is from 1961, but it might be from 1951. It is a little hard to read, but you can note that the daily room rate was $28, and the operating room charge was $30. Today, both would be a little higher . . . .
