Yesterday was spent running around paying the hospital and doctors. Now 15% of the cost of most medical procedures and hospital expenses are not covered by Blue Cross/BS or any of the insurance companies. The cost keeps increasing, while the quality of care continues to decrease in the U.S. health care system.
The days of receiving a bill after you are treated are over. Patients have to pay before the doctors or hospitals will play! The best days of living in this country are behind us in more ways than one.
