Medical Billing

If lawyers' billing practices bug you, you haven't been to a hospital lately. The billing practices in the medical industry are absolutely nuts. The Rocky has an example that illustrates this general trend. For example, the patient whose case they profile was billed $10,000 for a pacemaker, despite the fact that he didn't get a pacemaker. Also, it notes, accurately, that the price quoted isn't the real price.
