Healthcare bankrupts people with lawsuits

As if outrageous healthcare costs and high deductibles aren't enough, now they're going after those who struggle to pay their inflated bills.

"Patients also have trouble because like many U.S. hospitals, UVA bills people lacking coverage at rates far higher than what insurance companies pay on behalf of their members. "

In 1870 they said they didn’t want schools or hospitals. Quanah convinced them otherwise. Maybe now they’d reconsider.
