Hospital Costs

Visits to hospitals cost a lot, with and without insurance.

Dear Future President,

According to, a ten minute visit to a doctor costs about $68. This is a lot of money, and it gets more expensive the longer the visit is and how complex your problem is. Also, while insurance may cover the costs a bit, you are required to pay for that insurance.

According to, the average cost for health insurance per month is $321 as of January 31, 2016. This means that while doctor visits cost less money with insurance, the monthly insurance cost makes up for that.

Also, according to, about 31 million people, even people with insurance, do not get the medical attention they might need. Therefore, that person could be carrying around a fatal disease. This means that not only can that person die, everyone that person comes into contact with can get sick and die, too.

So, please at least consider making hospital costs and/or health insurance costs less in the future.
