    Change I Would Like To See To The Healthcare System

    When I go to my doctor, who is in network, I get an exam , get my prescriptions and get bloodwork done. The blood is drawn by an employee of Lab Corp and they test some on site and ship the rest to a central site for other tests. Then my insurance company gets billed from my doctor then the lab. I get billed after insurance pays. Why don't we get one bill? If I go to the ER I could get bills from four or more providers some of whom might not be in network. The Affordable Care Act doesn't address this. But funneling the bills and payments through one provider would reduce bills for insurers and patients.
