Wasteful Charge In Medical Billing

Those medical bills aren't the only problem. Doctors also contribute to the wasteful charge in medical bill. How does one justified a $2500.00 charge for a 15 minutes visitation? All the doctor did is ask: "How are you feeling today?" That was all and that wasn't even 15 minutes. It was more like 5 minutes. Another charge by a different doctor was for $500.00 for a 10 minutes checkup. Okay, you're telling me that that 10 minutes worth of talking and that doctor looking inside the ears costs $500.00. The problem isn't only with insurance companies and hospitals, but also with doctors. That is no way those charges are justifiable.
