Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement costs are based on the average insurance costs and payments in that particular area. Its not the government who sets the costs or payments or reimbursements. Its the private insurance companies, who are not regulated and are running amock with the average citizen at their mercy. Medicare reviews the health care costs in an area along with insurance costs, payments and reimbursements and then they determine how much they will pay, and how much your deductable and co=pays will be. So you see, its not government, it is the insurance companies.<quoted text>
And the government stepping in and regulating and controlling the health care decisions of every American citizen...gives you comfort??? lol They are the biggest crooks out there. The insurance companies are small potatoes compared to the mighty greedy government. Who is in charge of all those ridiculously igh insurance payments and restrictions when it comes to medicare? THE GOVERNMENT!! And you think they will fix things or even help?? lol I have some prime ocean front property down by possum creek that you need to look at and buy...because evidently you will "buy" anything. lol
We need to get a grip on the fraud. Millions and millions every year are stolen by false claims, by doctors kickbacks for prescriptions or tests or hospital stays, by therapists, by lab companies, and even by foreign countries who see us as easy pickings. That would help keep the costs for us down. Thieves making it unbearable for the average person.
