The only REASON it's $10,000 is monopolistic behavior for which the actors involved -- all of them, from hospital administrators on down to the nurse in the room -- ought to be in prison.

If that's the case, I don't understand why the OK Surgery Center lists (uncomplicated vaginal) birth at a minimum of ~$12k.

I had an uncomplicated vaginal birth within the last year (1 day stay, no anesthesia) and the hospital initially billed about $9k. That number includes newborn services (hearing screening etc).
