“Be nice if Disney actually hired some disabled folks in wheelchairs as Disney Guides......”

“There are disabled employees there. But they have power chairs, not wheelchairs. The one I see most often works at the Fantasmic! show, helping to show guests where to be seated, and keeping the able-bodied out of the reserved handicapped seats.”
Hospital Prices No Longer Secret As New Data Reveals Bewildering System, Staggering Cost Differences

Hospital Prices No Longer Secret As New Data Reveals Bewildering System, Staggering Cost Differences

Commented May 8, 2013 at 12:28:25 in Business

“Hospital pricing as well as most medical pricing is based on Medicare rules. Medicare pricing used to be based on individual states, then by region, now by country. Medicare, annually reviews how much they are billed for a particular service, comes up with average billing amounts, then determines what their allowed payments will be for the next year or so. By charging exorbitant rates, hospitals hope for increases in Medicare rates. For folks that pay for their own care, hospital prices are always negotiable, but the freakin labs and doctors usually are not. Review your insurance eob's and you can see how private insurance negotiates pricing even better than what Medicare pays. Its the system insurers and government created and obamacare may actually bring some needed change. For good or bad, Rep. Pete Stark gets the credit or blame.”

“medicare rates are based by cost areas.. rural areas cost less , metro reimbursments rates are higher.. the spread is no more than 5-10%.

Also areas which have a physician shortage have higher reimbursments.”

Kalikat on May 8, 2013 at 12:44:36

“Just try to negotiate for a better price. Remember Medicare prescription.”

Ryoushii on May 8, 2013 at 12:44:33

“Oh and double BS on the private insurance crap. Again, the Time magazine article addressed that and found Medicare/Medicaid gets the LOWEST prices, because it has ALL the information on actual REAL costs, and not the made up nonsense peddled by the hospitals. Private insurance pays 50% more on average than Medicare/Medicaid does for the IDENTICAL services, and this differential is going to get worse as hospitals consolidate into monopolies (the town I live in, the Hospital and its clinics are largely a monopoly)”

“Can anyone explain to me the difference between the Church of Scientology, the Church of Latter Day Saints and the Unification Church?”

gfgarv on Sep 17, 2012 at 15:12:06

“Yes, I can. The Church of Scientology marries gay people to straight people, The Church of Latter Day Saints marries plural women to one man The Unification Church marries thousands of people at one time. However; a cult is a cult is a cult and by any other name is still a cult.”

DC Liberal on Sep 17, 2012 at 14:08:40

“Hmmm... not arguing either way for any of these, but what makes a cult? 2000 years ago the Christians were a cult. 1500 years ago the Muslims were a cult. 500 years ago the Protestants were a cult.

It seems to me the perceived difference between a cult and a religion is the passage of time. This would tend to support a conclusion that Scientology and the Moonies are cults. But the Mormons? Maybe less so.”

“Sure. These cults are in the top 10. Scientology is a cult. The Mormans are cultists..... And so is the Unification Church. They all mirror in many ways that of Reverend James Warren "Jim" Jones who was the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple, which is best known for the November 18, 1978 mass suicide of 909 Temple members in Jonestown, Guyana.
