Thanks to a newly introduced aspect of ObamaCare, hospitals are now mandated to publicly show how much they charge for procedures.
Aren’t you glad?
I mean really… who goes to a grocery store or gas station and doesn’t know how much they’ll pay?
Part of market-based competition includes Read the rest of this entry »
