Dr. Tammy on Healthcare

A woman caller identifying herself as Doctor Tammy responded to the topic of Nationalized Health Care. She recounted her operating costs.

She said her practice, in order to cover the office costs, must charge at least $60.00 per patient she sees.

If her patient is on Medicare, her total reimbursement is $15.00.


How long would you stay in business if you got $45.00 less than your costs, per customer?

I wonder....

What part of her costs go to filling out, submitting, and filing all the various forms required by the numerous insurance companies?

I understand that a major part of the overhead of doctors, as well as any business that deals with government, is the cost of doing the paperwork.
Think of your taxes........multiplied by ten.

Don't underestimate the cost of insurance. I wish we could get the lawyers out of the system. Or, at the very least, pay lawyers $20/hour like the rest of us.
