CHEAP ILLEGAL ALIEN LABOR IS RAPIDLY DESTROYING AMERICAN HEALTH CARE - Illegal Immigrants Medical Billing and Insurance Companies
The cheap illegal alien labor savings are paid out in some form by employers to insurance companies which doesn't make cheap illegal alien labor so cheap. Then the insurance companies tack on millions more to boot and use the illegal immigrants as a excuse to boost their profits.
Something to ponder about your insurance premiums and medical care billing using illegal immigration to jack up your medical and insurance bills beyond belief.
Remember, people that pay with insurance never see the medical bills.
Through the years myself and everyone else assumed that illegal immigration was driving up health costs and this is with no doubt true. But what is happening also ...is the hospitals, insurance companies and corporate doctors are tacking on millions upon millions more to medical bills the insurance companies pay and the patients never sees.
Employers that use illegal immigrant labor to cut labor costs are paying higher insurance premiums to insurance companies because the friends and families of illegal immigrants that are illegal immigrants plus the working illegal immigrants use the emergency room for medical care.
The hospitals overbill the insurance companies to cover the uninsured illegal immigrants, the insurance companies pay this overcharge then raise insurance premiums that the employers have to pay to stay in business. So all the cheap illegal alien labor savings are paid out in some form by employers to insurance companies which doesn't make cheap illegal alien labor so cheap. Then the insurance companies tack on millions more to boot and use the illegal immigrants as a excuse to boost their profits.
All patients that use insurance to pay their medical bills never see the actual charges because the insurance companies are sent the bill to pay. Most U.S citizens have some form of insurance and the uninsured U.S. citizens that use the emergency room don't even bother worrying about the medical bills they get because they can't pay them and they are at a loss no matter what. The poor that use welfare type medical payments never see the bills and the state pays them blindly getting reimbursed by the federal government. This is odd because the state knows there is loads of fraud in the medical system and they just keep paying. I'm wondering if the states are overcharging the federal government for millions more just like the hospitals are overcharging millions to the insurance companies and the insurance companies are squeezing millions out of the consumer. The feds just print more money or something?
I've read several stories of people that were horrified at the medical bills they received when the insurance companies short paid the hospitals and the hospitals sent the unpaid portion of the bills to the patient. These people crapped their pants at the $50,000 dollars they were getting charged for a routine surgery that should have only cost a few thousand (in the area of $3000) .
One uninsured person got charged $6000 for a 3 day stay in the hospital and another $8000 for supplies. All the doctors, lab tests and radiology were billed separately apart from the $14,000 hospital bill for an additional $6000 dollars. If the doctors and labs are charging $6000 combined for the treatment why is the hospital charging $14,000 for 3 days of laying in a bed and a nurse?
Just makes me think of all the overcharges that are being paid by the insurance companies to the hospitals that the patient never sees. I know illegal immigration is an issue driving up medical costs but these hospitals, corporate doctors, radiologists and labs are tacking on millions more using illegal immigration as the cover to milk the cow so to speak.This article was originally published in forum thread: Illegal Immigrants Medical Billing and Insurance Companies started by Hat In Ring View original post
