    LD is re-defining trolling.

    He soooo wants to "ignore," but can't stand it to the point that he logs out for the sole purpose of checking up on the people that he has ignored.

    That's special.

    I wonder how accurate this tool will be. It would require accurate reporting of data and revisions as well. It is better than no information at all.

    Several years back I had arthroscopic knee surgery on an outpatient basis. I specifically asked what my costs would be. They were off by about $1,200. I’m not sure they are capable of being competent.

    Accuracy and completeness are the issues that occurred to me.

    I still wonder how accurate a national average will be for a local pricing situation.

    And it also sounds like it only includes procedures that might be done both in a hospital and a clinic. A ding against hospitals?

    It seems like some kind of information about Medicare charges by state or reasonable and customary charges by state would be more useful to someone trying to gather financial information for a decision.
