Undercharging Health Insurance Companies due to Faulty Research
It seems as if some major Healthcare companies may have been paying its customers less based on botched, faulty research. It is very odd that this has occurred, and that so many other companies have used the same Research Group, Ingenix, for its Data. There really is no reason a health insurance company should not pay out its proper share. Health Insurance companies are payed by consumers, and should receive their service without hassle.
Unfortunately, the health care industry is odd. It is not suprising that Health Insurance companies want to pay less, due to sometimes crazy and unknown hospital charges that the consumer did not have any control or say over. There are so many technicalities in a hospital bill, and so much abuse going on internally, that it is getting out of hand. The left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.
Doctors have overcharged patients, created further complications, prescribed unneccesary medications, the list goes on and on. It may seem that Health Insurance Companies are being “the bad guy” but if you were to see the prices the company had to pay versus the consumer, you wonder why if you dont have health insurance you can easily go bankrupt with just a hospital visit.
Why do we make this so complicated? Maybe Health Insurance Companies and the Institutions that they deal with are so caught up with each other playing the numbers game that they have forgotten they are actually providing health care services to real living people. Hospitals and Doctors asking for huge amounts of money combined with Health Insurance Companies trying to protect their assets leaves little room for the health of the consumer…It should not be this way.
