Why health insurance is so expensive
« on: September 15, 2010, 08:39:40 AM »
I saw a huge ad in the newspaper.   They listed locations where they would park a busload of testing equipment and do eight more advanced tests (EKG, 10-item blood test, PAD, artery test, etc) have a doctor handy to interpret them, the whole ball of wax.  Cost $179.   

They mentioned that the typical charge for this workup in a hospital is around $2300.

If they can do this battery of tests for less than a hospital prolly charges for any one test, it's time to start parking these busses in the hospital parking lot and give people health care they can afford.  :poke
