Healthcare Consumer Question of the Day
Here is a question for the sage and practical-minded readers of Anchor Rising:
Recently, a friend of mine had an appointment with a doctor who has a policy requiring a $40 payment for appointments cancelled on the same day. Said friend arrived on time. Said doctor did not, not seeing the patient until 45 minutes after the scheduled appointment time.
The question is: in a completely fair universe, shouldn’t the patient get $40 knocked off of the bill in circumstances like these?
