What is happening with the American heath care system? That is a question that so many Americans have been asking for some time now, and that includes me. Recently I had to go to the emergency room for a minor incident. Nothing life threatening, but I had to go. This was back in July, and since then I have received more than five bills from two visits. The amount I have paid is a month’s worth of rent. I also have insurance through my job, but every week it is new bill.
The question that I have is why medical bills are so expensive. I went to the E.R. twice, and on one of those visits they told me there is nothing they can do. They then gave me number to a specialist. That was almost $300 to tell me that there is nothing they can do. I just do not understand why these bills are so expensive.
The American health care system is broken, and it needs to be fix. I do not know how to fix it, as it is right now it makes no sense to me. There are all types of regulations on things, so maybe there should be some regulations on what hospitals can charge patients. There are millions of people in debt for medical bills that they will never eb able to pay off, and I do not think that is right. I think you should pay your doctors yes, but something needs to be done.
