Medical Costs


Our actual medical costs include hospital charges for tests, treatments and medication. These are the bills our hospitals send to our insurance companies.


If we can lower medical costs, we can reduce spending on Medicare, Medicaid and Veterans healthcare. If we do not reduce medical costs, we cannot reduce our healthcare insurance costs. Our healthcare insurance costs include all medical costs plus 30%.


The pieces are all related. The government unsustainable spending in Medicare, Medicaid and Healthcare subsidies have caused medical costs to rise. Reducing these government subsidies becomes necessary to reduce medical costs. 


Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare were instituted on a socialist model that is unsustainable. The cost increases in Obamacare are but a symptom of the larger problem.
