I looked more closely at my husbands monthly billing to Medicare. He does peritoneal dialysis. Medicare is being charged $1,527.00 a day for him to administer his own dialysis!
The bill was $49,813.00 for a month! Granted, a little over $3,000.00 was for drugs and testing, but geez! I pulled up Baxters cost of supplies, and there is no way we are spending this kind of money every day. It seems to me that WE should be paid for doctoring ourselves!
I was also told that the Baxter Pro machine costs a little less thatn $20,000.00 to buy, but it is rented out. Why? And we wonder why our health care is going bust.
I dont understand, can someone enlighten me? I am very, very upset about this. Although I do not pay for the service, it seems like a huge over bill, every month.
