The chopper company ceo says they charge only $2000 for people on medicaid while they charge more than $6000 for people on medicare. Why is there a difference in the bill ?

- $33,000 for a medical flight? I'm calling B.S.
They are over-charging for that service. The entire medical and pharma industry continually engages in price gauging, charging extreme amounts of money, way beyond what a drug or service is actually worth.

- All children and young adults age 21 and under should automatically be covered by some form of universal health insurance. Working adults can pay their own way, but children should be covered.

This type of shit is all too common. I have heard multiple stories like this from our local hospital. Less than 20-minute flights and the bill is over $40,000. These companies should be ashamed of themselves. They are taking advantage of people during a moment of crisis.

It’s a scam. In our city they call medi flight all the time. The people are flown 70 miles to OKC where they are treated and released the same day. Our local hospital used to do everything, broken bones, heart attacks, etc. But now if your airbag deploys you’re going on a chopper. Now explain to me how I can rent a chopper for $600 an hour in Kauai but 30 minutes in Oklahoma is over $30,000?

Illegals get top medical care. Injuries from climbing border fences will get you a life flight helicopter ride to a top trauma center. The middle class will be stuck paying

Re: Family charged $33,000 medical bill for using chopper.
My daughter’s were hit by a drunk illegal running a red light. We had good auto and medical insurance

Five years on and I still will get an occasional medical bill. Out of pocket cost for a 6 min ambulance ride, 1,500. That was after insurance payed
The illegal paid nothing

American’s strength has always been the middle class. Since Clinton was in office we have drained. Obama made sure to squeeze every last drop from our middle class

Every thread that Beef (retired at the IQ of 46), contributes to (sic), is always an endeavour of his to impress upon others that he is a financial wizard, the Yoda of fiscal knowledge. Beef has no real monetary worth or assets, he is an invalid pensioner that was awarded a relatively minor compensation payment, that's all. Just ignore him when he boasts about his kitchen knives and his love of adolescents.
