That is not how it works. The Insurance companies put the screws to the hospitals and Doctors. None of the Dr or Hospital can just send an insurance company a bill. They first must be enrolled with an insurance company as a provider and the insurance company sets the reimbursement payment. If you do not agree to ALL their prices than you cannot bill them. I've seen IM Meds in office that cost $73.00 and payment be $12.00. I've seen an ointment that cost $7.00 and get paid .04 cents. The insurance companies are as bad if not worst than Medicare and Medicaid as far as payment.
Guess when you have doctors running every test and every scan known to modern medicine whether it's necessary or not just to cover their butts from a malpractice suit, they're going to get paid. You can take it to the bank.

A specialist once admitted to me that doctors do have a "knee jerk reaction" when it comes to over testing and over scanning. It's become an epidemic.

It also seems to take 5 specialists and 2 nurse practitioners to treat one symptom. They either want to spread the accountability around or they all want a piece of the insurance pie.

Vice President Joe BiteMe says Obama will issue an edict to the population enacting gun control as if he has the authority to write his own laws.
Does this formally begin Obama's rebellion against the Constitution and the government of the United States?
No, just another step.

Somebody needs to stand up against the tyrant.

And all you Obamacare supporters should be aware that more nurse practitioners will be filling the shoes of physicians. That's going on now. Imagine when 3 million more people are waiting in line in front of you.

There also won't be any guarantees they will be the most qualifieid. A warm body with a certificate and any amount of training will have to do.

There aren't enough physicians now. Much less after Obamacare runs off even more of them.

Wrong.

But either way, gun control will kill the Democrat Party.

What mess exactly did Bush leave behind?
The war mess...that Democrats voted for and funded?
The housing market collapse mess...that he warned congress about for years and more democrats than republicans rejected the notion there was even a problem?
The deficit mess...of which Bush's is miniscule compared to Obama's?
The TARP mess...which Obama and democrats supported?
What mess exactly? Please...tell me what mess.
Yes, the incursion into iraq was bushies. Keep in mind the funding doesn't make you cic.

The housing market problem was caused by corporations (ie... capitalism). They ignored their own standards and got greedy. What you called "warned" should have been more of new regs against the banks and loan makers.

The deficit is a large part a result of bushie's administration. And as far as I'm concerned, a way for Obama to counter flood a sinking ship he inherited. Even McCain thought the economy was fine the same day the stock market tanked another 500+ points.

The tarp mess wasn't as bad as it could have been. I'm not much of a supporter, but I think it was necessary. My biggest problem is they didn't put stronger provisos on those companies that took money.

A Nurse Practitioner has at LEAST 6 years of Medical School. A Doctor has four.
