Small, but a big, burdensome bill

I recently received a bill from a health care provider for $60.25 for some recent blood work. I checked the insurance name and they were billing my wife’s old insurance. I contacted them and had it re-billed to the correct insurance. My statement came in and I owe nothing. Of the original bill, $54.06 was disallowed, and my insurance paid them $6.19. My copay was zero.

When a company charges a person with no insurance 10 times the amount that it charges an insurance company, something is very wrong. This is a small bill, but it happens daily to millions of people. If only our elected officials had term limits, so they would be concerned about our country’s needs instead of getting contributions from the insurance industry to get reelected.
