Neither will the for-profit hospitals, which are buying up medical practices and, then, jacking prices.
Case in point. My PCP used to charge around $185 for an appointment with yearly physical. Out of that, a portion of this $185 went to pay office space rent to a local hospital that owned the office building.
Then, the local hospital offered to purchase his practice (there were a few other physicians in this practice), with the agreement that they would pay him and the other physicians in the practice more than they were currently making. Plus, they'd no longer have to deal with patient billing.
Now that the hospital owns the practice, the hospital charges around $230 for the PCP appointment with yearly physical. Plus, there's now a variable "hospital facility charge", anywhere from $165 to $220 for seeing the PCP at the hospital's facility, just like there is if one goes to a hospital's emergency room.
And, although, in my opinion, this is one big scam, apparently, this is all okay with Medicare; because, they are paying most of the increase, while charging me more than I used to pay.
Needless to say, I'm down on both medical insurance companies and hospital-owned physician practices.
