The health care industry — doctors, hospitals, medical facilities and pharmaceuticals — will do this country in and only the rich will survive ("Costs vary for same treatment," May 9).
It does not make sense for hospitals to charge varying and outrageous prices for the same procedures. No wonder Medicare is in trouble. When doctors take the Hippocratic Oath, they vow to do no harm, but these outrageous prices seem like a defeat for the oath.
