I don't know any specialist that makes 1 Million dollars a year. Not a single one. The link posted of course did not say that either.

Doctors make a good living working 80-100 hours a week, but a Million Dollars? Give me a break. At least quote accurate info when lumping all of this together.

Your data is old. Premature birth could well hit over $250,000 in no time. C-Sections are not the reason for premature births. Again, do not use old data when posting something so inflammatory. Every....... Every Hospital in the United States of America now has a hard stop of no deliveries unless medically indicated before 39 weeks. C-Section or induction are not a reason for premature births and NICU healthcare cost.

There are many articles written about what differing specialties make. Also what a Doctor makes probably contributes to about 10% of the overall Healthcare cost.

Here was the first link at the top of Google.

Malpractice as it is now set up and Insurance Administrative costs are the most reasonable areas to trim, but they also have the largest lobby groups and tend to be the ones making the laws and setting policy.

It will never be possible to have legitimate discussion about these things as long as poor, baseless, inflammatory "facts" get tossed around like this.

The good part about your post was about CEO's salaries. It is pornographic and vulgar in today's society to pay an administrative person that kind of money. Ridiculous.

Wooly...............Who actually knows what Medicaid, Medicare and Private insurance pays for a doctor visit.
