THREE PATIENTS LIMP INTO THREE DIFFERENT DOCTORS’ WITH THE SAME COMPLAINT....THEY ALL HAVE TROUBLE WALKING AND MAY REQUIRE HIP SURGERY...

PATIENT 1.

PATIENT 2.

GOES TO THE E.R. 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. COST FOR THIS PATIENT $0.00.



SEES HIS FAMILY DOCTOR -AFTER WAITING 3 WEEKS FOR AN APPOINTMENT, THEN WAITS 8 WEEKS TO SEE A SPECIALIST. GETS AN X-RAY, WHICH ISN'T REVIEWED FOR ANOTHER WEEK, AND FINALLY HAS HIS SURGERY SCHEDULED FOR 6 MONTHS FROM THEN, PENDING THE REVIEW BOARD'S DECISION ON HIS AGE AND REMAINING VALUE TO SOCIETY. GETS BILL FOR DEDUCTIBLE WHICH IS $7,500.00 AND HAS A COPAY OF 20% WHICH EQUALS $6,000.00. TOTAL COST FOR THIS CITIZEN $13,500.00.
