Are insurance companies to blame for high medical cost?

I know there are other factors such as smokers/obese people, lawsuits, and people who don’t pay their bills. But i’m wondering if insurance companies are one of the biggest reasons to blame for the ridiculously high cost of medical services and equipment? The reason I wonder is because the prices of medical care are so ridiculously high, but it seems like doctors can simply charge any price they want, no matter how ridiculous, because the insurance company will simply pay it. Unlike if someone was actually paying out of pocket and would actually say your out of your mind for charging that much

Can i be sued for a non fatal/injury car crash while insured?

I was in a car crash about 2 months ago due to bad weather, however I was still found at fault since it was I that lost control of my car. Now 2 months later both I and the man I crashed into are still waiting for my insurance to file the claim, the man is growing impatient and rightfully so but I don’t see how it’s my fault and not the insurance. He said he will be forced to get an attorney to handle the matter if the insurance doesn’t hurry the process, he was not injured and I have full cover so my actual question is, if he gets an attorney will he seek legal action against me? Or my insurance company?


Car insurance so unfair?

@George Costanza I know, but surely with the prices they charge for people like me if they was to give me back half of what i initially paid which lets say £6000 (which they do charge if not more) and was to give me half back they would still profit massively and that is still 10X more than what my father would pay, so they would still make a massive massive profit, if it was the price they were charging my dad, I could understand there would be no need to refund some but when they are charging this amount i think it is most suitable.

Buying a used Honda Civic 1996? First Car? Insurance?

Hi guys. I’m a College Freshman, and I got my California Driver’s License last winter break. I am thinking about buying a used Honda Civic 1996. I know the only way I can find out how much insurance would cost me every month would be by me getting a quote. But on a rough estimate, how much would I be paying at age 19 for a Honda Civic 1996, on my own plan. Not on a family plan or anything. Also, plus gas and everything, how much roughly would I be paying every month? Best detailed answer gets 10 points. Thanks!!!

Will the Insurance company fix my car?

Couple weeks ago some idiot ran into my car. His insurance company is only Liability, and car damage is covered for up too $5,000 in damages. So here is the deal….the Kelly Blue Book value of my car is about $9,500 and the insurance company wants to salvage my car. Can this be possible? I mean my car is worth way more than what the damage is, and I spoke to the claims department and explained my situation and they said if your lawyer (my lawyer) and the body shop guy who is going to fix my car signs off mentioning that they can fix my car for $5,000 then I can get my car back. But please help….do you guys really think I will get my car fixed and back or will I be stuck with only $5,000. Any advice is appreciated! My car is a 2002 Mercedes – C240 – 4 door sedan

Car insurance for young driver?

I was wandering if I bought insurance for a car that I own on a provisional, drove it about on the provisional for a bit, then passed my test and told the insurance company that I had done so, would it shoot up to the £5,000/£6,000 quotes I’ve been getting or would it not rise as high because I was with them on a provisional? also any general tips on knocking down the price, it’s just ridiculous, it’s for a 5 door fiat punto! thanks in advance 🙂

Auto insurance for a new driver and a new car?

I got my licenses on March 30th, 5 days after my sixteenth birthday. I was so excited to start driving to school and what not but when i got home, my mom told me she would not buy me insurance because it’s to expensive. I asked her how much it would be monthly but she wouldn’t tell me. My first question is about how much would insurance be for me, as a new driver, and i have a new car. My second question is if i don’t have insurance, can i still drive with my mom or dad or guardian in the passenger seat? (they have insurance for themselves) If i can’t drive with them, i don’t get how insurance will get cheaper for me overtime if i haven’t driven and can’t drive since my licenses test.
