Is Everybody Charged The Same For Health Care?

     If airlines can charge differing fares for the same flight, why cant hospitals charge differing rates for the same services too?  It’s all about a free market economy.

If the price of an airline ticket is too high, there is nothing to stop you to shop around for a better one. Same goes for health care.

Editor’s Note: A total hysterectomy for $10,000, all incluesive? First quote received was for about $25,000. We negotiated a total incluesive fee of $10,000 with the assistance of a hospital administrator who put the package together for our client who was in need of immediate surgery. Patient’s group medical plan paid the $10,000 up front as a condition for the transaction. The surgery was successful.
