The timidity of Americans to vote for and force real change in our health care system will continue making us a willing participant in our pilfer. The story that could potentially affect every American should be probative.
We see accidents throughout out roads. At any given time anyone of us could be in an accident that will require an air transport ambulance. The private organizations that provide this service must be considered modern day pirates. As shown in the ABC clip above, this particular air ambulance company requires that some party signs a contract accepting complete responsibility for the transport bill. The agreement does not provide the actual charge the company will bill.
Air Methods billed the man $47,000 for flying his daughter a relatively short distance. ABC contacted Air Methods' spokesperson said the bill was high to compensate for the indigent and underpayments. He then said with a straight face that the bill would only have been $12,000 otherwise.
