Name: John Murphy

This insane system was brought to us by our federal government, the same people who claim they will fix it with Obama Care.

So, the real cost (or maybe cost + a reasonable margin) is greater than $1,321 and far less than $7,535. Is there a way, other than leaving it to the politicians, to actually fix the reimbursement system? I don't see any solution other than a single payor system to make reimbursement predictable, and make able services accessible to all people that need them. Easy for me to say...

Interesting post. I think it's notable that the hospital's part of the bill was roughly twice as much as all of the physicians' charges combined. Is the cost of maintaining an endoscopy suite really that high?
