Old Medical Bills That Are So Cheap They Seem Fake | 22 Words

A conversation is happening on Reddit, a conversation about how ridiculously cheap medical bills from the 20th century look compared to today's painful prices. We know, we know. Inflation and all that. But just look at these!

First, there's this $2.95 delivery bill from 1957...

One person commented: "Adjusted for inflation, $100.00 in 1957 is equal to $910.26." That still seems like a pretty good deal to us...

Then there's this $7.50 X-ray bill from 1950:

Someone commented that just over a year ago, they paid $6,898.99 for an X-ray for a preapproved procedure...

And don't even get me started on this $38 delivery bill from 1930.

An eagle-eyed Redditor also pointed out that "miss" is automatically printed as the title for the nurse. Yikes. Maybe some things are better left in the past...
