A Note from Dr. Plotkin
Hospitals can charge “what they want” There is no regulation regarding the cost-to-charge ratio from a hospital provider, as long as there is no parallel billing and a single “exit price” is charged to every patient. In other words, the original billed amount has to be the same for everyone, insured, uninsured, Medicare, Private Insurer, international or anyone else. The difference comes in how much a hospital provider is willing to discount a bill (the reimbursed amount), and depends on who the payer is, with Medicare recipients getting the most favorable rates.
