US Healthcare a big Crime Organisation
I’m a foreigner. In my country when you show up in the hospital for any kind of treatment or consultation, you get an estimate first, decide if you can afford, check with insurance or whatever before you decide to go through. If you think otherwise, you can just walk away to a different hospital for better price.
First time visiting the hospital in the US was last week for something minor. Asked them for estimate and to my surprise they said they can’t tell me me til I finish. (Wtf in my head). It’s like getting a snack from Walmart and I have to eat it first before you tell me the cost? Goddamn.
Whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? This is the senseless shit I’ve ever encountered. Hospitals don’t have standard costs for standard procedures?
A mechanic can tell you how much it costs before he fixes a car? Why can’t hospitals in the US do same?
Why is it legal?
