The charges in your bill are arbitrarily set by the provider. There is no known mechanism by which you can do "comparison shopping" for services, or enter any kind of price negotiations by the simple fact that those prices are completely and utterly unknown to the public, let alone advertised. The "services" are also known to have
geographical price variations
– the same procedure can have widely varying price differences, depending in what locations are they performed.Since virtually every clinic or hospital has its own accounting and classification system, it further adds to the general confusion and allows the providers for infinite variations of charges to be applied.
Are you sure that what you see in this bill is TRUE, is it FAIR, is it REAL? is it CORRECT? Is it
TRUSTWORTHY and HONEST?
