When it comes to medical care, who provides information on lower cost vs higher cost treatments?0raven braswell2012-10-21 22:15:03
I'm curious with all the recent debate over the Affordable care act who determines what procedures should be done for a patient taking the costs into mind? I'll give you an example, when I had dental insurance I could use for a year approx. $1700 USD for my dental needs, I sat with my dentists, went over the individual costs and decided accordingly what procedures I wanted, what I wanted but couldn't afford given my insurance coverage, and what procedures were too costly to consider all together. Does the medical industry provide this information at all? I've not luckily needed to have this type of issue come up to date with my medical needs. It seems if you are put into an emergency situation the doctors make all the decisions and assumed its the best method to treat the need regardless of cost. Is this the way things happen with emergency care and non-emergency medical care? When it applies to those with medicare - do patients get consulted on costs before procedures are implemented? Anyone with experience please advise.

Will throwing the health insurance companies under the bus magically lower the cost of health care?2Virgie2012-08-21 14:15:03
Have you ever paid for your medical bills using your own money? If you have then you would know the insurance companies are not the ones charging outrageous prices. Its the health care providers that are charging so much. Funny how the Obama administration only wants to focus on a small part of the problem eliminating any chances of actually fixing the real problems.

Cost of Fertility Treatments? Would my Insurance Cover it?0teal2012-05-20 04:04:45
My boyfriend and I have been trying to conceive for 11 months. I have very irregular periods and am doing hormone tests done in 2 weeks and will also be tested to see if I am producing eggs ( SOP possible ). If it comes down to it , my boyfriend and I have discussed fertility treatments . I have read much about Clomid I think its called ? How much is that? Will insurance cover it, or I'll have to pay out of pocket ? What if I decided to take pictures ? How much is that? That insurance covers it, or I'll have to pay out of pocket . I know you probably have to call my insurance company and find out , but thought I would see if anyone else has what I have and need this or know a little about coverage. I have total care. We want nothing more than having a child. We both have good jobs , a large 4 bedroom ranch house , cars, and feel the next step is to bring life to the world . Im tired of the endless negative pregnancy tests ! Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you !
