5. I've commented before that hospitals in general

have been left mostly unscathed when it comes to the scrutiny of the healthcare industries. In my city there are 3 major entities that own 99% of the healthcare access, hospitals, urgent care and specialty groups and doctors. All three have roots as non profit entities from days when they were completely financed by charitable donations before there was such a thing as "health insurance" as we know it. So why do they charge so much for a tylenol? It's collusion, complicit highway robbery along with the insurance industry.
