Young woman checking bills, taxes, bank account balance and calculating credit card expenses at home
What won’t you get charged for these days?
YouTuber Camille Johnson, from New York, says her sister has a rare disease, and has been struggling to find appropriate care.
She says that, during a recent trip to a clinic, her sibling “got emotional because she feels frustrated and helpless. One tear in and they charged her $40 without addressing why she is crying, trying to help, or doing any evaluation, any prescription, nothing.”
On Twitter, she posted the bill, and pointed out that the “Brief emotional/behave assmt” cost more than blood tests or a vision test.
Many online were shocked by the charge.  See details, here:  (
