Health Care Cost Discrimination – Not All Prices Are Equal

Friday, October 30th, 2015


“If you want the $6,221 MRI, you should have it — but you should pay for it, not me, not my employer, not my government. If you want the $300 test, it’s yours. If you want to buy your prescription for $150, go ahead. But you should also know that if you walk two blocks, you can get it for $17. (Yes, these are real numbers.)”

Editor’s Comment: The following article is a good one. It clearly shows the convoluted pricing of health care in this country. It also brings up a valid issue: health cost discrimination in health care. Health insurance is a reimbursement benefit. Members incur medical expenses, and are then reimbursed (never mind Assignment of Benefits – all that is extended credit by providers). So why should a plan sponsor reimburse employee Jones $3000 for an MRI and only reimburse employee Smith $400 for the same exact medical procedure? That is discrimination of the worst kind…………..
