On ACA, it'll still be a year and change — shortly after the law his been fully implemented — before you see real cost reductions. But costs are still high. Last sumer, I had a bizzar-o gout-like episode with my left foot. The ER bill and radiology and all that crap came to more than $1,600 for a one-hour out-patient visit. And that included a $60 charge for an air splint that retails for $13.50 online.
That said, my Medicare parts A, B, and D — and my AARP supplemental plan — start in two weeks, so I can stop getting gouged for the few times I need healthcare.
