Federal agents raided twenty “birth hotels” on Tuesday night in the Los Angeles area
The plush complexes double as “maternity hotels” for pregnant Chinese women who come to the US to give birth to their anchor babies.
Chinese women pay from $40,000 to $80,000 to come to the US to deliver their anchor babies.
They were funneled to several Orange County hospitals to deliver, but they didn't pay full price — approximately $25,000 — for medical services, officials said. Instead, they got reduced rates for the indigent, ranging from nothing to $4,000, the court papers say.
That translated into big losses for the hospital
