    I have found that if you call people up and investigate billing to the extent possible, and then with informed and concise argument communicate in writing to CEOs and responsible parties, you can get attention paid.  

    To some extent, this is because it is very rare to hear from people who are organized and articulate.  

    I suspect if more people would actually question the system in specific terms, this would help a little.

    However, there really does need to be a larger and systemic effort to question the economics of health care.  

    This is the only place in the legitimate economy where people get to say "pay us whatever outrageous price we name or you will die."  

    Thank you for this effort.  May this grow in the ability to have influence over both the healthcare industry and Congress.

    hope that the idiots who have no constructive and creative solutions but only look to tear down will not win the day.
