How To Charge $546 For Six Liters Of Saltwater

Charges like these for a bag of salt water are buried in hospital bills that are never reviewed for accuracy, validity, or reasonableness of fees.  There is no possible way to see charges like the ones noted in this article when an administrator/insurer/TPA pays the hospital bill with nothing but a Uniform Billing (UB) in hand.  99% of hospital bills are paid with no reasonable documentation of charges.
