Today would have been Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday. When we think about greed in medicine, are the greedy ones the doctors who want to be paid fairly for the work they do, or the politicians, and big hospital lobbies who want tax payers to fund Medicaid expansion?
At MediBid, doctors give a fair price for the procedure you request, and the patient can say yes or no. The word “NO”, is what gives you the power as an individual. It’s harder to say no when Medicaid or big insurance engages in price fixing.
Think about this the next time you visit your doctor.
