"Big Pharma" did not get so big treating people fairly and ethically. Most, if not all, of the huge pharma conglomerates, can charge any fees they want and get away with it, because the regulatory agencies, like the FDA and CDC, are just revolving doors for all the gurus who run the gambit and rip everyone off.
So here's how it usually plays out if you ignore the first huge bill that pharma throws at you for that overnight visit to the hospital, or surgery, or diagnostic testing, or emergency room "care." The first bill shows up and it's thousands of dollars, and quite often tens of thousands of dollars. It's almost unbelievable that one visit to a hospital can cost more than a new car. Most insurance doesn't cover it all, because there are deductibles, percentages uncovered (this is a huge manipulative area), co-pays, pre-existing conditions, and the list goes on.
Once the "patient" ignores the first (most likely) grossly inflated bill, there is a 40 percent chance you never hear from the bill issuer again, meaning they never contact you, send you another invoice, or try to collect it, ever. That's astounding. Most likely they are trying to take your head off, and it's just a numbers game, where enough people fall for it and they make a fortune anyway.
Next, there's another 40 percent chance they remind you 4 or more times about the bill, but then offers a big discount after that. That's because the initial bill was so inflated they can afford to take much less, which is probably a somewhat reasonable charge, maybe. The other 20 percent scenario entails the patient "going to war" with the provider, which still often yields end results where the patient settles for about a fourth or fifth of the original charges.
Some people feel irresponsible or unethical about not paying their bills right when they arrive, or the invoice is generated. Others worry about it affecting their credit and becoming a nuisance when they go to buy a house, a car, a boat, or just get a new credit card. One thing they are forgetting is that most of the pharma corporations have a long rap sheet of criminal activities, price gauging histories, fraud charges, and massive settlements they've paid out for corruption and toxic products. Just take a look at the vaccine manufacturers, for example, and you will see.
Should these medical "collections" become a nuisance or turn into a court summons, you can still call them and offer about one-fourth of the original charge and they will most likely take it. Many credit-offering lenders don't pay much heed to old medical collections, knowing this is how it usually goes, but there are some exceptions, and our blogger friend warns us about them.
Blood draw businesses that run lab tests and diagnostics are relentless and will find you to get their money. So will basic doctors like your MD, dentist or pediatrician. It's mainly the big hospital bills that rip you off because there aren't many other choices out there for those services, especially when having a baby, or staying overnight for any reason, or running diagnostic testing to find out deep-seated health problems (that probably come from bad diet and lack of exercise).
