While at the Veterans Hospital today I read a disclaimer that the staff had put on the counter at the dental clinic. It said:
“We would like to advise you that if you do not have dental coverage the cost of an extraction as set by CONGRESS is $487”
It goes on to say “a private extraction is less than $152 and at Cook County Hospital $50”
I find this disgusting and unjust. How can members of Congress sleep at night.
Thank you to the staff for bringing this to the attention of Veterans!
