When you go to your doctor and you
Need lab or X-ray, do you do it at the
Clinic, or must you go elsewhere?
Our local doctors sold out to a bigger
Outfit. Now the local hospital is asking
For a bond issue to upgrade, and have
A clinic for the doctors at the hospital.
What has me yelling is that you will
Go to the "hospital" to do labs and x-rays. People look at me and say so!
Here is the problem, hospital rates are
More than double than clinic rates.
Then the comment that you have
Insurance, is silly. Most plans now
Require you to pay the first dollar for
Deductible and labs and x-rays are on
The list…so if you need an a1c run
I pay $26, a year ago one was done
while I was in the hospital it was $63.
Also, every time you go in, you
Will need to be admitted! 15 minutes of
Paperwork to do a cbc? ??
That is what is happening in the rural.
I guess I am going to need to get
A new doctor…70 miles one way to
See a gp.
