The issue I would like to add to the list of outrageous items is the cost that a cash customer pays for laboratory testing as opposed to how much the insurance company pays for the very same tests. My wife is a cash customer and the lab recently charged us amounts that varied from 3 to 13 times as much as an insurance company would have paid for the very same tests.
How can that be described as anything other than a rip off of a customer with no insurance? Perhaps the government needs to investigate this also as part of the effort to reform health care.
