Think New Mexico

Think New Mexico has come out with another great report on the lack of transparency in the health care industry.  This studious group is asking all the right questions about a very sick system that is supposed to help the sick.  For example, why does being treated for blood poisoning in Taos coast $19,556 while just over the hill in Las Vegas it costs $72,346?  Why do the poorest people pay the most for medical care in a poor state?

Of course this is a complex issue with a labyrinth of cause and effects, but at the end of the day it is one being manipulated by an immoral and criminal healthcare complex.  It is worth reading  the report.  And then get angry and call  your legislators to demand transparency.  I doubt the Governor gives a damn.

Very interesting. And Obamacare might only compound that because it puts more people on insurance and not as "charity" cases.
