  1. obamacare or note i don't think is the core root of the problem. the problem being is we have turned the health industry into a big business and in business the overall goal to make money and health care/ meda care (the way we have it structured) it allows large health care company's to shake down the system all the way to small town docs can do it.

  2. The biased news media!!!!! We might as well live in Russia! We had Humana insurance for my mom! Had to get the state A/G on the line just to back the dr.s WANTING to admit her! Go investigate our crooked Congress!

  3. Think this is badd, the same Fraudsters & Crooksters have also INVADED the Vetinary health care business, now taking your Canine to the Vet/ Hospital will cost you the price of a good used/ new vehicle. you can't even get decent honest reliable Health care for your Pet anymore without getting taken to the Cleaners !

  4. Remind me of the old bait and switch tactic hospitals use to fraudulently charge preliminary detainees in custody for medical services they didn't consent too, highly illegal.

  5. I use a medical supply company and I know for a fact that they bill my insurance company for thing they said I got but I didn't so I let my insurance company know they got took and they honestly didn't seem to care…

  7. I wish hospitals were like car garages. You go to the hospital and they tell you the cost of diagnosis before doing anything. You accept it or not. If you decide to go through with the diagnosis you get the diagnosis and afterwards you get a root cause of your problem. Then you get a cost for any procedure to fix the root cause before done so you can decide if you want it done or not. I wish the cost would be up front before any action done. Face it, doctors, administrators, nurses, technicians all are providing a service, and that service cost can be given up front.

  8. Basically revenues can be generated in one of two ways, volume or rate, volume being the number of admissions, as clearly illustrated in this report, or outrageously inflated fees for everything from Kleenex to a heart-lung bypass. Each facility uses either admissions or the mysterious "chargemaster" rates to bolster revenue … and each are as fraudulent as the day is long.

  9. Yep I knew it hospitals are run by thugs. Don't matter if you got Medicare or medicade they'll send their collections thugs after you to squeeze every last drop of money out of you. Never go the ER!

  10. Old folks got enough bills hospital ceo's & those right below them are thugs, they're nothing but thugs, when will there be laws against this.

  11. why is it legal for hospital to nill mr for involuntary stay, they kept me as imvoluntary for 8 days. now i have that debt on me, i need that money to pay for the Eylea treatments saving me from blindness macular degeneration

  12. When I was young they got old people to sign over their houses. I am sure that still goes on. Especially Chatholic hospitals. They are evil. Hippa as a parent can't get any answers. 2 weeks later your child is in a body bag, even your child walked in. Fraud. Evil. Big $$$$$ in body bags and organs.

  13. I hate america so much. We are suppose to be the greatest country in the world, yet no free health care? This is so comical its surreal
