    I know we can’t paint hospitals as being all evil. But can we condemn the drug companies that jack up prices for insulin and other drugs (and basically hold people’s lives hostage)?

    Modern ctrl-left illiberalism is truly a mental disorder suffered by all tyrants throughout history.
    Hospitals today are the result of Govt interference in the free market. Democrat Socialists: "We need more govt in the free market."

    There are several countries that have free medical care, obviously our taxes pay for it. But I'll take my country any day over yours. A country that can actually vote in an idiot like trump, needs help. Wish you the best.

    The only thing youre completely wrong about is saying "adam is attempting to just help get information out there correctly..." No... He isn't... While i personally actually enjoy the show and do watch it, and statistics and information they give are 100 percent of the time ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS going to be spun to PERFECTLY support a very far leaning (almost to the point of communism,not the standard american leftist) way of thinking and viewing things.. They have never tried to give am unbiased and completely factual point of view... And like I said ,I even enjoy some episodes and watch them myself... But I have to watch it kbowing I must do my own research becahse anything that could possibly have a politicalized spin on it.. Does

    All these people in comments saying healthcare is a right, LOL I can only imagine how that would go.

    Doctor: There you go, good as new. Now about the bill.

    Patient: No way, healthcare is a right!

    Doctor: Okay then, here's a mop, come back everyday at 6 AM for the next fifteen years.

    Patient: But my philosophy professor told me healthcare was a right!

    Doctor: Should've taken economics instead.

  • Tina Jackson

    Yes, I agree but we have two major hospitals here in Fort Wayne, IN and you would think they are continually trying to “out build” each other. It’s ridiculous how much both hospitals have expanded. Oh, there is St. Joesph Hospital who has been in the background silently taking care of people and just NOW is remodeling and expanding their property. I would go to St. Joseph but it’s not “in network”. Again, ridiculous!
    I have been dealing with hospitals and doctors for the past decade for a chronic illness.
    Doctors have pushed pain meds on me and I finally have gotten off of those high dose opiates after 7 years and it was HELL and I feel better mentally and emotionally now even though I am still dealing with pain. I’d rather have pain than be miserable and still be in some pain.

    Healthcare price transparency is what, apparently, Trump wants from the Healthcase System, because right now, like you said, we have no idea of the costs. Thats why, although espensive, places like Neighbors Urgent have my respect, because when I was super sick and thought I had strep from a coworker, I called Neighbors (after my doctor started requiring 2-week ahead appointments only), and asked them for a price check, IF I did indeed have strep. The lady was so nice, and said it would be about 400$, and said really, I should try to go to a Walgreens Clinic where the price would be about 200 instead. She even recommended a few (I called but they never answered). It was really nice to have someone really say "We will overcharge you honestly for some petty antibiotics, let me tell you where to go instead).

    Sometimes i am so happy that i live in the Netherlands and you have to get insurence if you are 18. And if you have a low income you can get money from the government to help you pay the insurence based on your income, so you don't have to pay everything out of your own pocket (amergency care is alway coverd, the rest depents on your insurence)

    Every hospital in America could stay open with just s fraction of the subsidies given to banks. Or amazon. Or soybean farmers.
    Medicine for profit is the most disgusting thing in the world.
    We literally look down MORE on people who charge for sex work than we do on people with the skills to save lives...
    But only do so FOR PROFIT.
    Should doctors be very well paid? YES.
    Kinda like disgusting politicians. Or a federal agent.

  • Michael Morgan

    Insurance companies decided to get together and decide what they would pay and what they wouldn't. That's why if you have insurance and get a bill there will be certain items that are not allowed by insurance but not charged to you. Therefore, since the insurance companies only pay for what they want, the hospital has to overcharge to make up the difference. The insurance companies hold the hospitals hostage because it would cost more to sue the insurance companies than agree to their terms.

  • Luxaly

    the problem with US healthcare is that there is no universal one they all work on their own... let say patient A is in a healthcare with 10.000.000 ppls patient B is in one with 50.000.000 patient A will get higher bills cause his healthcare doesnt have that much power to negotiate better prices while the other with 50mil have that power^^ in germany/austria we too have seperate healthcare but they formed a universal healthcare board... so they all have the same bills not 1 patient get 10k while the other has 20k cause of the healthcare^^ and yeah its also overpriced by waaay too much... EMS transport costs like 3k $ here where i am its billed arround 300$ a hip replacement cost i think 40k$ in the us here its arround 13k$ (wich is billed to healthcare u pay 0$ yourself... thats why even there is a cure of cancer that cures without OR and chemotherapy a US citizen might rather take the old go cause in the US this will likely cost a fortune...

    I noticed at the beginning of the video, he didn't even mention the part where Adam says "out of pocket cost are sometimes more expensive than insurance" Adam said a ChargeMaster will sometimes have two different prices. I remember reading two stories in one, a hospital charged $629 for a band-aid on a kids finger. The other story, a woman was charged $5,751 for an ice pack and a band-aid!

    Actually, Adam is right. If I were to check the price of health care and insulin, it’s wayy above inflation rate from 1923.
    Thailand for example has the US private healthcare insurance companies, which private hospitals CLEARLY JACKED UP THE PRICE of any treatment.
    For example, clearing ear gunk out cost me either free or 10$ that was 1995-2000s.
    Guess how much is it now? 40-80$ depending on whether doctors want to prescribe unnecessary drug or not.
    So don’t even.
