Health care rant

22 Apr

This is what is wrong with healthcare in America.

Matilda had a bronchial infection, so the doctor prescribed antibiotics. The particular antibiotic that she prescribed cost us $53 (with insurance). If I did not have insurance it would have cost me over $80. Is azithromycin SOOOOO much better than $4 amoxicillin? And is the doctor aware that the medication that she prescribes is so expensive?

Health insurance would be a heck of a lot cheaper if it was not treated as a Las Vegas style all you can eat buffet (lobster included).

If there is a doctor here to comment, I would love to hear your thoughts.
