The Enormous Cost of Healthcare

I was talking to a client the other day and she was sending me her medical bills because she was so shocked by the amount of money she owed the hospital for a two day stay.

This is a excerpt of what’s going on in capital hill.

Washington is doing nothing to get Americans desperately needed medical care.

With his typical hyperbole, President Trump has promised his “terrific,” “phenomenal,” and “fantastic” new health care plan that will replace the ACA. He has yet to produce the said plan. Republicans want to tweak financing and eligibility rules that do nothing to improve access. Candidate Biden wants to expand the ACA law that reduced the availability of care, by passing “Medicare for All” that could seemingly take away our right to choose. With a price tag cost of $32.6 to $40 trillion, Biden’s (really Bernie Sanders’) plan will, at a minimum, double Americans’ tax burden and simultaneously cut access to care. (Thehill.com)

So my clients bill was itemized and water was charged at over 200.00, now I have a fairly big house and my water bill has never been 200.

Staying Focused

Hopefully congress and the rest of the politicians will take into consideration that the we are dealing with a national public health crisis and do something about the high cost of healthcare.

If this is your idea of good healthcare than we need to talk, first let’s start with what do some say good healthcare is.

According to medical news today this is what good healthcare is, Good health helps people live a full life. Read more. Health is a state of physicalmental and social well-being, not just the absence of disease or infirmity.

Wow, that sounds wonderful if you can afford healthcare. I’m not a healthcare expert are basher just a person that has had good healthcare providers and absolutely horrible healthcare providers, I truly don’t believe it’s the insurance that makes healthcare bad. It’s 100% the provider.

What Do The Experts At MIT Medical Say About Healthcare

Healthcare in the United States: The top five things you need to know:

  1. There is no universal healthcare. The U.S. government does not provide health benefits to citizens or visitors. Any time you get medical care, someone has to pay for it.
  2. Healthcare is very expensive. According to a U.S. government website, if you break your leg, you could end up with a bill for $7,500. If you need to stay in the hospital for three days, it would probably cost about $30,000.
  3. Most people in the U.S. have health insurance. Health insurance protects you from owing a lot of money to doctors or hospitals if you get sick or hurt. To get health insurance, you need to make regular payments (called “premiums”) to a health insurance company. In exchange, the company agrees to pay some, or all, of your medical bills. Learn more about health insurance.
  4. You will get most of your care from your “primary care provider” (PCP). After you buy health insurance, you can choose a PCP who is part of your insurance company’s network. If you buy an MIT health insurance plan, you will choose a PCP at MIT Medical. Your new PCP could be a nurse practitioner or a physician. You will see your PCP when you need a physical exam or lab test, when you are sick, or if you need care for an ongoing condition, like diabetes or high blood pressure. Learn more about PCPs.
  5. You will usually need an appointment to get medical care. If you want to see your PCP, you will need to call your PCP’s office to make an appointment. When you call, you need to explain why you need the appointment. If you are sick or hurt, you will get an appointment very soon. If you just need a routine physical exam, you might have to wait several weeks or even a month. Learn more about appointments.
