HMO's as far back as you can remember.....how far back do you remember paying for your own healthcare ?<quoted text>
"I wont ask, but it is tempting......"
Well, I'll ask. What is it that you want to know?
I started in 77...paying for my healthcare
My last real insurance policy ended in 91
Downhill from there. My last out of network doctor hung it up a few years back.
I know of one but she is into head work, the non invasive stuff.
I once managed a company that was self insured to a point, managed by an HMO type. We paid the bills so I saw the invoices.
Trileptral was costing the company 280.00 dollars
Local pharmacist told me medicare paid 250.00
Cash price -$780.00 dollars per month
Why would a drug retailer gouge a cash buyer in favor of a buyer that requires a lot of paper work, labor cost, and pays via check in the mail days or weeks away ?
