Healthcare is confusing for a lot of people, for good reason: there is no such thing as standardized prices set for anything. Healthcare costs are set by hospitals, medical organizations, doctors, and insurance companies and they can vary among providers even on the same day for the same procedure.
Now, with the introduction of an entirely new healthcare system as proposed by Trump and his team, prices could be drastically changing once again. The American Care Act is currently in Senate, hoping to be passed by Republicans and Americans, especially those with chronic conditions and complex medical needs are wondering how the new act will affect their lives, especially their wallets. Which is exactly why one mom from New Jersey is tweeting out her son’s surgery bill, to share just how drastically the bill could cost families like hers.
