>Since when does a simple strep test cost $116.48????
And why is it that my insurance company only covered $32??? Is that because they have deemed that a strep test should only cost $32? Well, obviously that’s wrong. Obviously now a days it costs $116. I would like to be the person who is getting $116 for analyzing an oversized Q-tip with some cells on it.
Our health care system is broken.
I don’t expect president-elect Barack Obama to fix everything, and I know that the economy is the number one priority right now, but it always seems that health care gets pushed to the side by something. I hope he really addresses this issue. Everyone deserves high quality, affordable (if not free) health care.
And strep tests should not cost $116.48. That’s just highway robbery.
