Re: saving the republic with medicare

I try to go to our local private clinic, whenever possible, instead of the hospital.

They will give you better estimates, and you can negotiate on an overrun.

Re: saving the republic with medicare

Your lucky to have clinics in your area we don't have them anymore. All those within  100/150 mile area is owned by two large hospitals so there is no price checking or negoationing.   Every doctor are specalists now , you are passed around from one to another  picking at your bones.   Every Dr refers you to next specialist.  Its the biggest racket in America next to our defense contractors. Heart dr join together building facilities packed with their own testing equipment forcing all heart case have to pass thru their facilitied.with large charges.  People on here are after the medicare program but you and other. tell me what a 80 to 90 old is going to get ins and what will it cost  even with this rather dumb Paul Ryan voucher system........... This is a guranteed death panel nothg less      What he!! these elected officals who have life time benefits  and right now its the party you support.

Re: saving the republic with medicare

We had a similar situation, until two doctors, who didn't care for how the Hospitals were doing things, started their own clinic.   They started in a trailer house, and now have a permanent building.  If they can do it here, they can do it anywhere, if they really wanted to.

Re: saving the republic with medicare

Sounds easy try being a independent dr when ths hospital do all the testing and lab work.    Where do your two doctor go for that work ?   They must have POed the hospital to some point.

They probably send it to the same place the local hospital does.   Except for the simple stuff, the send their lab work out, as well.

 

Far as I know, the Drs, wanted to get out of the rat race and red tape of the Hospital, so they started their own clinic.   They charge noticably less, and seem to be doing pretty good for themselves.

Lab Corp does work for less then 1/2 of what the hospital charges. I think they are nation wide.

Jesus Craig - you tried all this commo propaganda for the last four years and nothing came of it.  Do we have to endure more lies and garbage for another four?  Give up mate - you are making a fool of yourself again.
