Did April Fool’s Day Come Early This Year?

Last month, I spent a night in the hospital after a liver embolization.  I stayed in a very small double room with a roommate.  Recently, I got an explanation of benefits from United Healthcare, my secondary insurance (see below).  Note that the amount billed for one night at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital is $55,746.78!  Who bills that amount for a one night hospital stay? 

Do you think this is a typo?  I know NYC rents are rising fast but this is ridiculous!
