insurance billing bs

can someone explain how the hell.....

if a company bills your car insurance 2000 for 1500 repair it is insurance fraud...but medical supplies and doctors can bill what ever they feel like to your medical insurance company because they have a contracted amount they they expect to get....????

example...i ordered $2007 in med supplies...they billed 5457...and got paid 1467....the company said they can "bill up to 10,000 it doesn't matter" like wtf...I can't bill what ever i want for my services..if anything it sounds like an illegal tax right off.....something stinks....

And that sir is got a lot to do with what is wrong with our health care system. My insurance isn't the greatest. But the last prescription I got filled would have been $10 for 30 pills with insurance at Rite-Aid. Cash at Walmart was $10 for 90. Duh.

It seems they get more and we pay more, I don't get it either. No matter what people are screwed.

Insurance companies and oil companies are two of the richest in world for a reason I just filled my truck today $93.00. Gas should be going down not up with Trump saying we will drill more. I don't get it either. I am just thank full I had decent insurance or I probably would not be house hunting right now. Those bills are scary looking I should a been Dr.
