    It's funny that you should mention this. Actually, insurance companies do this all the time. Except they negotiate when the bill comes. It's weird that this is done at all. You can't negotiate with WalMart or Amazon. But, the insurance companies are able to negotiate with hospitals and doctors like some podunk flea market.

    The insurance is there to fund the payouts to the service providers, so the charges made by the hospital are a major component...

    They aren't done in secret. Unfortunately I was involved in this regarding a 40k hospital bill. Sure your not talking out your ass?
