Health Care Costs

Filed under: Economy, Health Care, South Carolina — NotforHire @ 9:16 am

Health care premiums in South Carolina rose nearly six times faster than median workers’ earnings between 2000 and 2007.

I would like to suggest, to all of us who are fortunate enough to have health insurance, that it is important to look closely at health care bills to make sure that we are not being overcharged by our health care providers, and not to just rely on our insurance carriers to do this for us.

Just suppose when you get your bills that you are paying for those services yourself rather than the insurance company. Don’t hesitate to call providers and ask them for an explanation of bills you receive.

This is one thing we can do to help lower our health care costs and our insurance premiums as well.
