Dr. Paul Caskey, chief of staff and orthopedic surgeon at Shriners Hospital for Children in Spokane, checks the range of movement in Samantha Viehouser’s back during a post-surgery checkup. Samantha has about $20,000 worth of titanium rods and screws in her back to correct scoliosis. Shriners Hospital is now billing insurance companies for the cost of the care.
