Why wouldn't they make a profit...I recently went to the ER for a painful symptom that the PA had no explanation for, the phlebotemist bruised half my arm when she stuck the needle in, four hours,xrays blah,blah, blah...over $2K out of my pocket and Anthem Blue XX burdened the rest, which was negotiated...so they forked over less than I did...health care? they're killin' us...

Hmmm... I wonder who is really paying for all this...
