Hospitals are charging people without insurance different prices than people who are insured, up to 5 times more than what they would charge Medicare for a procedure. Its one thing if a private hospital is overcharging but charity hospitals shouldn't be doing this. Does anyone else think that this is unethical and totally uncalled for? Shouldn't non-profit institutions be providing this sort of care for reasonable prices given the "charitable" nature of their organizations?
