Why should the exact same treatment for pneumonia cost $5,000 in one building and $124,000 in another?

Obamacare is known by its official name: the Affordable Care Act. As I’ve said often, one constant in politics is that the law being considered will do the exact opposite of what the politicians say it will do.

Co-ops created under Obamacare reported net assets despite losing millions because they used an accounting trick approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Tax filings for 18 co-ops, including nine that collapsed in 2015, also revealed that co-op CEOs were paid handsomely before many had to shut down. In July 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services amended its agreement with co-ops, allowing them to list $2.4 billion in loans they received from taxpayers as assets.

Hacking of Health Care Records Skyrockets

It turns out the hospital's hard drive had been stolen along with Kuhn's medical records.
