My wife went in for an X-ray first on her lower back. Insurance required and X-ray first then she could have the MRI. That is the stupid gate keeping and money making that all these places do. Even if... more a DR orders the MRI one must first get the X-ray. The Xray cost over $800. Insurance (joke as it is) discounted it to $680. The MRI cost $2791.75 and having the joke of an insurance called Anthem took it down to $2200. This DOES NOT include the radiologists fees for reading the images (X-ray nor MRI). Now more visits to the DR as to what to do with my wife will follow. And, the actual help she needs (no surgery, no meds will fix her situation) will not be covered by Anthem since massage, chiropractic, and physical therapy are not covered by Anthem's lame ass plans that they offer. Long and short of all this is to wake up and smell the ripoff of all involved in health care. This hospital in Delta is included in that list of money grubbers. They may be voted #1 rural hospital for the last two years but I will not go there again with myself or any family member. Take a look at their fair practices page that lists all their services and the fees charged. Outrageous prices. Just for laughs I am going to send a copy to my friends in Germany. My daughter was born at DCMH and it costs us under $1000 19 years ago. It is almost $10K now. A new knee (just the hospital costs) is over $45K!!. The lowest available health insurance that is available to us on the western slope is Anthem's bronze plan which costs us $31000 per year and it is basically unusable . We are all getting the shaft. It is not the feds directly, it is the insurance, health care providers, and the pharma wanting max money from you. They are running the show. Hell, the politicians are in the pockets of all these grubbers and won't limit their prices like they do with utilities and other industries!!!!
