Medicare,medicaid and insurance cost reduction.
I’m aware of doctor shortages in US.I did not have any prostate problems.Under the pressure of more that one doctor and my family too I ask my primary doctor to refer me to an urologist. He checked me physically and said at my age of 70 is normal. But just to be sure there is no cancer will do a biopsy.He took 12 samples and said that results show one sample has a possible 1% cancer. As conclusion he sent me to an MRI to be sure that the cancer has not spread all over my body. He also stated that he wants to see me in 6 month.
I said that will not be home because traveling to Europe and will see him in about an year.Than he said 9 months.
I hope this example will help find how to cut cost.
