This is something hospitals have been doing for decades. It's disguised as a way to help the patients but really it's assuring those dollars are collected from patients who would potentially be self pay. Let's talk how Sharp inflates their charges for the ED and provides unnecessary tests for insured patients. That'g gouging and they are guilty of it.
