What do you think of this?  With the big hospitals’ uncompensated care scam due some cuts in the future, they have resorted to these types of tactics.  Blackjacking the sick at the door in order to maintain the obscene profitability of their “not for profit” organizations.  Just as problematic is the revelation to these knee-capping “collectors” of confidential medical information.  Try to remember this when you hear some hospital representative droning on about the community benefit their “organization” provides.
