The re-reimbursement rates for such services don't face the downward pressure competition would apply toward them.

No. It was a good thing for the kids that could have undergone procedures under unsafe conditions. You have no evidence there was any pressure either way in reimbursement rates. if you do, let's see it, or STFU, you charlatan.

Basic economics Bucky, the greater the supply of a good relative to demand, the cheaper it becomes. This is 1st year econ. I'm sorry if you lack the education to understand this.

Hospital's compete. I have seen bill boards with electronic signs that show the current average wait for emergency room visits.

The reimbursement rates are not set by market supply and demand; they are negotiated between insurers and providers.

But don't let facts intrude upon your whackadoodle opinions.

You are fucking demented.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Maybe you should've taken the second year where they explain to you why we don't live in a free market.
