• Yet another example of how our American health care payment systems are completely bonkers:

Goodbill researched hospital charges for a liter of saline; available online for about $10, some hospitals were charging many thousands of dollars (in one case $26,667.03!!!) for a bag of N.S.  Goodbill used the machine readable lists of hospital prices mandated by the Hospital Price Transparency Rule to grab the data.

What a mess.
