Hospital Billing

This will make you mad if you don't have insurance. According to a leading health policy researcher, uninsured and self-pay hospital patients often pay two-and-a-half times more than a lot of health insurers pay and three times more than Medicare allows.

In this month's Journal of Health Affairs, Gerard Anderson is calling for for a reform of hospital billing practices because he says often, patients who are paying on their own are not getting the discounts that hospitals are providing to insurance companies.
