Exactly. The costs shouldn't be hidden or shifted. They shouldn't be marking up aspirin to make the labor costs seem cheaper than they are.

Hiding costs also allows for cheating especially if an insurance has caps on certain aspects of health care. This is one reasons hospitals in particular have made little or no effort to become transparent. If a private citizen tried to cover a deductable or non covered it by having their contractor jack the costs of something else that would be fraud.
