Hospital mistakenly bills patients for millions

Unemployed doorman Alexis Rodriguez said he almost became ill when he received a $44.8 million bill from the Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center.
Mr. Rodriguez told the New York Daily News that he was hospitalized last spring with pneumonia and was afraid the bill was valid.
The company that prepares the bills had mistakenly put the invoice number in the space where the invoice amount should go.
The billing company is telling patients to ignore the multimillion-dollar bills. It says it will send out corrected ones.
