Hidden healthcare fees leave patients fuming
When a rheumatologist told Linda Drake of Miami that she might have lung cancer, the former smoker did some research and discovered a study for early detection and treatment of the disease with researchers in southern Florida. Drake, 57, decided to participate in the study because there was a $350 flat fee, and she could enroll through UHealth — the University of Miami's network of clinics and hospitals. She even could go to a UHealth outpatient clinic close to work. Drake's visit last spring took about one hour, she said, including a CT scan.
