Why Is There No Price Transparency in Healthcare for Patients?
There is virtually no price transparency in healthcare for patients. This creates hidden monopolies helped along by the gag orders in contracts. Patients need to be empowered with price transparency and product transparency. One frequent argument I get is that healthcare is too complex to provide price transparency. "People say things are complex when they want to avoid the truth." - Character: Elise Wassermann. Actor: Clémence Poésy. The Tunnel. Sky Atlantic and Canal. Season 1 episode 2. Aired 2016/06/26 in the USA on PBS. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2711738/
