I believe you should be able to read and understand the charges on your hospital bill.  I believe they should be easier to comprehend than a) your cell phone bill; b) your high-speed Internet and HD bill and gizmo rental; and c) just exactly when your electric/gas meter reader will come to do his work.

Time to borrow some wisdom.
