Have you ever considered asking your doctor for a discount on a hip replacement? Or signing up for a drug trial to get free medicine?
As more workers find themselves unemployed and losing their health insurance, Americans are finding the courage to ask hospitals and health care providers for a better deal. Friday on the Sound of Ideas, Regina Brett will talk to health care professionals who say it is possible for individuals to negotiate price even though some in the medical community view the practice with disdain. How to avoid paying retail for health care, Friday at 9 on 90.3.
