    Yes more tests cost more money. Tests tend to reduce the possibility of doctors being sued.
    We have been told for many years that Medicare is going broke. A portion of that same was used to bailout ACA. So that means it has even less time.
    But for some reason we are still taking Medicare and Social Security out of every working persons check.

    Do you want doctors treating you without diagnostic tests? :)

    Well I know CMS considers this a closed donut hole but I don't consider one paying 25% of their drugs once you reach it as being closed.

    Happens all the time. Some ailments don't need expensive tests. It's really up to the doctor to determine his/her own liability. There are too many 'ambulance chaser' lawyers IMO.
