    Darn you for pointing out other FACTS. Downright shameful of you!

    Worse is the shaft your doctor gets. When he submits a bill of $110 for a treatment, he will be fortunate to get paid half of that. And they flat out refuse to pay for a good many treatments. Will your doctor welcome you when he faces that kind of man handling?
    It's amazing how many people don't know that. But, in the interest of 'shining the whole light' on the issue, there are docs and hospitals that mark the bill up, knowing they're only going to get a percentage of what they ask.

    President Trump, along w/others, have been trying to derive a plan that would show transparency that would be fair to both the medical profession, and the patients who seek their care.
    I wish them luck w/that one, as it's likely the government, not the medical profession, who don't want the general public to know the real numbers.

    Still, one has to take into the consideration that the cost of medical devices - x-ray machines, digital devices that have made it so much faster to get, and receive, results, MRI machines, etc., etc., etc., are incorporated into the costs of the overall medical care a patient receives.

    How do you make that transparent?
