Self Pay vs. Insurance

dealing with a "situation" with a local hospital where I was charged about 2.5 times what

the "cash" price would have been for PT for a family member since it went through BCBS

insurance and the high deductible isnt being met.

 

Really makes me question the legality of this. Maybe it's no different than me paying $157.67

for a bag of Roundup Ready corn that some other farmer is paying nearly $300 for, but it

really rubs me the wrong way.

 

Here is a national forum discussion about this.
