One thing that adds a huge cost to healthcare compared to the past.
When we were young, we went to the dentist, they cleaned your teeth, and took care of any "issues" they found.
NOW, they clean your teeth, and the doc takes a look, evaluates what he thinks needs to be done (and generally, he will find SOMETHING.
So he gets paid for the first "services rendered" and schedules you to return at his convenience, so he can charge you for another "visit", and
other services.
The MONEY is in the procedures....not the appointments, but "well visits" must be kept separately...different billing "codes", different rates of return.
They aren't allowed to "combine" the two. (This is not suspect, this is totally true. My wife is in the medical BUSINESS)
If you go see your regular "health care provider" once a year for a physical, he is not allowed to "treat" you for ANYTHING.
If he treats anything else in any way, it is no longer a "well" visit, and becomes a "sick" visit. That visit pays him a much higher rate than the well visit.
It is billed differently to your insurance co. and, collects him another visit fee and you another co-pay.
The docs are taught this in school, it is part of their MD. Have you never had the doc suggest you make another appointment to handle a problem.
If you felt like they were wanting you to help pay for their boat, you were correct, and they get pissed if they think you figured it out.
