The simple fact that you need insurance is the real problem, and it's worse than the article tells, if you actually do need the surgery but it's not imminent you can't opt to pay out of pocket at all, they won't let you even try. It's insanity, and the government is handing the hospitals and doctors blank checks instead of addressing the real issue.

This is a problem that needs to be addressed immediately. Many individuals are left suffering because they are unable to afford the cost of surgery in certain hospitals. I have also come across several information on hip replacement surgeries at depuypinnaclelawsuit. com which was very surprising.
