My son Ben had to have some blood work done in September. We went and spent a couple hours as they fed him a sugary drink and then checked his blood levels three time to determine how his body dealt with it. He did fine, thank God…
Today I got the bill. The total was $1,471!! Humana paid the $471.72 and I get to pay the remaining $1,000 by November 16. But remember, we don’t need any reform becasue we already have the finest medical system in the world… right?
If that is right, why do we pay more per person than any other developed nation in the world and have dramatically lower results overall to show for it. Why is it so hard to believe that we are indeed the greatest Nation in the world, but we can always look for areas of opportunity to make this great nation even better!!!
What kind of voodoo has everyone so ridiculously and ferociously defending this medical system that is systematically destroying our society? WHy is it so hard to see for so many well-meaning people. We get so busy tossing about jingoistic rethoric about how great we are that we forget that the bills are real and the next one they crush can and will eventually be ourselves. Unless you really sitting on a pile of money, none of us is above it. We are all subject to the same kind of rude awakening as mine today.
