USURY. We need VERY heavy-handed regulation and anti-usury laws when it comes to hospitals. Forget the "free market" BS unless you can FORCE hospitals to publish their prices and disallow hidden charges that take advantage of people at their weakest. Even then, in an emergency, you don't have the luxury of being able to shop around for the best price and value for money. Therefore, healthcare simply cannot be treated like widgets subject to the "free market", i.e. exploitative pricing, etc. Prices must be regulated and forced down through a single payer system.
