Oh c'mon @Boron.

The entire fucking medical system works on exactly the model you claim doesn't exist:
That's one of the joys of treating a human being: no two are ever alike: even twins.

Guess what -- that was not true when my daughter was two seconds old, when she was four years old, five, six, ten, and now. Nor me. When I go into the dental office to have my teeth worked on everything does have a price, and this time .vs. last, if its the same procedure and same complexity its priced the same way.

If you deal with any insurance companies at all or keep records and bill on an ICD basis you're blowing bullshit and you know it. You can't convince me of what I know factually is false because I know how the system works from one end to the other. Never mind my personal experience with it having only a Cat policy until Obamacare showed up for both of us and seeing first-hand the sort of RAPE that was served up to drive prices higher while paying a LOT less for the same fucking service.

You talking to a guy who was ALSO on the other side of the desk with the health insurance companies and had to deal with them for a decade as the man who negotiated the deals and wrote the checks for his employees and -- when they tried to fuck people, I stepped in and stopped it. Not because I had to, but because I wanted to and I was not going to let people get screwed.

Since I've had a root canal (and have the cap and nice image on X-rays of that tooth to prove it) I know bit about that too, on the business end of the drill-n-file operation, so spare me that crap as well.

Have a nice time with your family.
