Surprisingly not. DW was in the hospital recently.
Being the person she was she tracked every medication she was given to reconcile the detailed hospital bill (and dispute any irregularities) even though we have very good insurance.
Some of the required name brand stuff was expensive as you would expect, but quite a lot of it was generic and the prices per dose were quite reasonable. ($.25 - $.50/dose)
Other stuff, like box of tissues, was regular store price. (We would have paid that because we always coupon while getting them on sale.)
