My daughter needs a mri. Well with insurance and our $3000 deductible it was going to be $2400. So I called envision and asked for self pay price and they said $400. Guess where I am having her mri right now.

I am not trying to stand up for insurance companies here, but you do know that the doctors office is billing them $5400 for the same procedure that they would bill you directly $400. Personally, I think insurance is a joke as well, but not everything they get blamed for is their fault.

I have one scheduled for the 21st. After the Kamala/Biden ticket gets sworn in on the 20th, all healthcare will be free. I don’t need an MRI, I’ve just never had one and want to see what it’s all about.

tell them you only want to go in head first and that you don't need no stinking head phones.

Insurance is a scam but it seems all the politicians are scared to mess with it. It's seems that the doctors / hospitals could be forced to charge a reasonable price.

I guess the flip side would be free enterprise, can't regulate prices.


Again I'm sure the politician's donor have instructed him on where to side on this issue or it would be different.

Needed an MRI several years ago . Had to drive to Paris for it to be covered . Here in MP (where I pay taxes) it would've cost me $1500 .

its all a scam for insurance not to pay anything. the insurance company tells you its 3000K when they actually only pay $400, so with your deductible they pay nothing.
I was told my echocardiogram would be 2300, so I said how much if I just pay you cash, $210. Wth?

You can't expect to force doctors to charge a reasonable rate when you also require them to treat all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

Nothing will come of healthcare until we are willing to turn people away at the door.

Imagine that, for profit medical operations, negotiating with for profit middle man insurance companies, for rates that would lock in additional profits for both parties. Paperwork and additional staffing adds lots of costs to the process.
