Ho$pital Rentier Juggernaut vs You + Me
An enterprising reporter takes a deeper investigative look at hospital pricing for the individually insured or uninsured. Along the way, true stories to make you choke, and some great data gathering. The focus is on the question nobody ever asks from the perspective of the sucked-dry patient -- the astronomical irrationality of prices.
This is one of the only places I am seeing a keen interest in real-life stories of nightmares under the current private insurance industry regime. So I thought I'd post it. (I don't usually read TIME magazine ... but came across this in links at another blog.)
