Regulate overcharges for patients

Dear Board

I am a deaf woman, a citizen of the Commonwealth, admire the Founders of our democracy.   Unfortunately when it comes to our health our great valor to accept the faith of our doctors recommendations and make available health wise decisions for our bodies, our flesh which was created from one-god, but to afford the overcharges of hospitals that are extremely exaggerated, are stressful for humanity.    Why are we charge for seating in the waiting room, or for the nurse to take that 15mintue to evaluate our blood pressure, weight and note our concerns should be a $200.   Why when I go to the hospital I have to be charged $2000 for an overstay night.   I believe with insurance being suffocted with extra charges, that hospitals know exactly who to cough-up more money.   Becasue the first thing the Dr even ask me before they put a STAT-GO on me, he asked me, "What type of insurance do you have"?.
