Our Broken Healthcare system.

 HIP SURGERY.Three (3) patients limp into three different doctors with the same complaint. They all have trouble walking and may require hip surgery.

 

Patient #1:

Is examined within the hour. Is x-rayed the same day, and has a time booked for surgery the following week at a total cost for the operation of $2,400.00

Patient #2:

Goes to the ER, is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day, and has a time booked for surgery the following week. Gets NO bill for Copay or deductible, in fact gets no bill at all. Total cost for this patient is $0.00 

Patient #3:

See’s the family doctor after already have been waiting 3 weeks for the appointment. Then has to wait another 8 weeks to see a specialist. Get’s an x-ray, which isn’t read until the following week, and finally, is scheduled for surgery 6 months down the road, of course pending the review board’s concern of his age and his value to society. Receives bill for the deductible which is $7,500.00, and has a copay of 20% which totals $6,000.00, or a total cost of $13,500.00.

Why the different treatments for the 3 patients ?

  

Patient #1 was a Golden Retriever taken to a Vet. 

Patient #2 was an Illegal Alien 

Patient #3 was a Senior Citizen on Obama Care.

  

In November, should Hillary win the election, we’ll all have to find a good Vet.
