Many hospitals, doctors offer cash discount for medical bills

There are a lot of men and women coming out of prison with some serious medical needs that are not addressed or poorly taken care of in prison. Often they come out with precious little if any access to medical insurance but may have access to a limited amount of cash.

If this is the case, judicious research will uncover a little known truth. ‘…The lowest price is usually available only if patients don’t use their health insurance. In one case, blood tests that cost an insured patient $415 would have been $95 in cash…’

This may not be logical and sounds counter intuitive but it is a reality. However, you need to do your own research and every person is a different situation.
