The healthcare system needs changes and no one seems to think to change the way our healthcare is being billed. Over charged, charges of healthcare items or procedures that were never done, and health care charges that were not even necessary.
Don't know if you heard about that doctor that told that lady she had cancer - treated her - charged her insurance company and low and behold she found out a year later she NEVER HAD CANCER. That bill came to over 65K. Check the search engines and you will find more cases like that women.
Heart bypass surgery typically costs about $70,000-$200,000 or more, and heart valve replacement surgery typically costs $80,000-$200,000 or more. According to the United Network for Organ Sharing , the total cost of a heart transplant can reach almost $800,000 or more.
What's up with the huge market price to have a heart bypass. Anywhere from 70K to 200K?
The medical field should across the entire United States send in total cost for what they charge insurance and have the gov. team figure out a fair price list for all these procedures. Set the price as fair and steady. Give patient a reward check for looking at their medical bills that are being overcharged or charged to health care not given to them.
I asked around and I asked people that were hospitalized & fully insured if they ever looked at their medical bills. Almost 90 percent said NO.
I guess since they were fully insured they did not care as long as their health insurance covered the bill.
Some car insurance companies are offering a reward for good drivers. Why not offer patients a small reward check for taking a few minutes to look over their health care fees?
Alert baby boomers:Before you sign your elder parent into a nursing home please read up beforehand so you will be prepared to lose it all.
I hear tell the nursing homes take all your parents wealth after the insurance company expire the billing and if they are left in there till death do you part. Sign over home, bank money and stock/bonds and even loose change.
Now what about their children that lose their inheritance? The leading way to pay off home loans, help pay college and etc.
Money, cash in the attic, loose pennies, and savings that their parents work years for. What a racket!
