In any kind of operation, people even cry out of fear but have you ever heard someone charged for crying while undergoing an operation? A bizarre incident came out as a US woman told me that during her mole removal operation, she charged for crying. The woman sent a piece of evidence on Twitter, claiming she was charged $11. This event became popular immediately and sparked a debate over social media where people expressed their views on the issue.
The US woman who shared the incident on Twitter goes by the name Midge under the account @mxmclain. She had posted a medical receipt which she handed in after her simple mole removal operation, which reveals that the entire cost of the operation is $234 which has added up with other services supplied to her. In the bill, it is shown that the medical operators have charged her with ‘Physician service’, ‘Surgical service’ along with the word ‘Brief Emotion’. This has charged for her crying during the operation. Although, the actual operating costs $223, it has cost her more ‘Brief Emotion.’
Take a look at the bill issued for woman crying during surgery:

Woman surgery treatment bill went viral
Since the US woman has uploaded a screenshot of the treatment bill, over 1,40,300 likes with 10,84k retweets have been receiving the post. The comment section has flooded with various comments and experiences.
One of the Twitter users commented, “96127 – Brief Emotional-Behavioral Assessment Up to $25 per assessment, 4 times per year. Docs are using this to pad bills to increase revenue. I’d make a huge stink over this.” While another wrote by sharing the experience, “I had a mole removed, asked Dr “will it hurt when anaesthetic wears off?” She replied” what anaesthetic?” And promptly snipped it off with what looked like kitchen scissors! I couldn’t scream, my kids were behind the curtain”. And the third said, “Was the $2 discount for crying pretty?”

You go to the doc with a mole on your neck.
Doc says "I'll remove it, just give me a sec."
Cuts it off with a scalpel and no anesthesia.
Try to hold it back but you can't help but feel a…
