THe penalty for not buying a product at an inflated price? I havent made enough money in the last three fiscal years to have to pay it. Its a horrible tax on the little guy if you ask me.
They vary wildly in that when my uncle went in for an mri he got x price and when they found out he had insurance the price of the procedure went up sharply.
It probably varies from state to state. We have a ton of Dr's here and they love cash patients.
