They sure stick it to you if you are under or uninsured. I just found an example of this with a CT scan. I belong to a HMO.

Total charges 2830.00
Co Pay 175.00
HMO paid 128.27

The HMO got a 2526.73 discount.
Now if I did not have insurance, there is no way that I would have gotten that big of a discount. This is a total rip off for some people.

Yes, Dave, that is the irony. If you didn't have insurance and were planning on paying out of pocket, here's how it would go.

Charges for CT.$2830.
40% discount for paying cash:-$1132
Total cost for CT out of pocket:$1698.

And when you use my hospital, if your bill is under $2000, you can immediately call the billing office and apply for financial assistance, and get an answer IMMEDIATELY over the phone.
