Note that the proposal calls for outpatient lab services also. It is interesting that there exist services today where if you pay by credit card they will do any test you like for 1/4 the price the hospital charges, and you don't need a prescription for the test. I suspect Wal-Mart wants to compete with them. Of course one of the big savings will be on admin, as you pay and seek to be re-imbursed, versus the provider sending the claim to the insurance company a month going by and then the provider sends a bill for the co-pay to the patient.
