A $1,944 bill for a coronavirus test in New York. A roughly $52,000 air ambulance ride for a COVID-19 patient from Pennsylvania. About $10,900 charged to a Texas doctor’s insurance company after a free-standing emergency room checked his blood for coronavirus antibodies.

The New York Times and ProPublica have documented these surprise medical costs for COVID-19 tests and treatments over the past year.

The Island Packet and Beaufort Gazette newspapers want to know if South Carolinians are also being hit with similar bills.
