Bill Moyers

Money-Driven Medicine - The Real Reason Health Care Costs So Much | Health and Wellness | AlterNet:

Item: I have a bone growth stimulator that I have worn ever since my surgery. It's a fairly simple looking device that connects to a couple of adhesive pads that allow a small current of electricity to flow between them and stimulate the bone. The device is plastic and is the size of a deck of cards. 1/3 of that size is a battery. Cost? A little over $4,000.
