His $109K Heart Attack Bill Is Now Down To $332 After NPR Told His Story

Drew Calver, a high school history teacher and swim coach in Austin, Texas, had a heart attack at his home on April 2, 2017. A neighbor rushed him to the nearby emergency room at St. David

“I don’t feel any consumer should have to go through this,” says Drew Calver, of the huge surprise bill he got from an Austin hospital after his 2017 heart attack. He’s worried about other patients.
