You probably know the cost of health care is more than just what you pay for a doctor visit or getting a prescription filled. Health care costs include research, development, and marketing of new procedures, devices, and technologies. It involves hospitalization costs, including new medical equipment and the cost of providing state-of-the-art diagnostic testing. You pay not only for the visit to the doctor, but also for the procedures he or she performs, as well as any laboratory and radiology costs, medical equipment and services such as ambulance charges.
