Adele Roberson –
Regarding the comment (reprinted at the bottom of this entry) that you left on the Free Market Cure website: Please make sure that it is not you doing the “bamboozling”.
The story is true. The cost of the surgery was indeed $28,000. It was arranged (as the video “A Short Course in Brain Surgery” explains) by Canadian medical broker Rick Baker of Timely Medical Alternatives – a company that specializes in negotiating low rates on surgical procedures in the United States for Canadians on long waiting lists.
Perhaps, if you had watched the video and had been curious enough to look up Timely Medical Alternatives on the internet, you might have figured this out.
By the way – we’ve never received a check from the AMA or any other organization with a financial interest in this debate. If you had read the disclaimer to that effect here on freemarketcure.com, you might have figured that out also.

There is an E-Mail currently being sent all over the country that tells us that some Canadian came across the border to the US to get brain surgery because he was diagnosed with cancer and could not get the attention in his country for four months.This E-Mail tells us that this man was treated in the US and the total cost for this brain surgery was $28,000.00Where the hell can you get brain surgery for $28,000 in the US?This whole story sounds fishy to me. An operation such as this is estimated to cost $150,000.00 to $200,000.00. Recent news on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.I spent $38,000.00 a year ago at St. Luke’s Hospital in Houston, Texas. Four days of tests…. that were “inconclusive”. I am still unable to digest my food properly.A BOOB JOB, IN THE US COSTS $5,000.00.My young neighbor just paid $9,500.00 for a normal delivery of her child.Anyone reading stupid stuff like this needs to think about what is being said and why.I suspect this is just moreAmerican Medical Association propaganda.The AMA is responsible for stuff like this.A bout a year ago there was news coming out about some man from Canada that came to Arizona for medical treatment. Later it was found that the whole thing was bogus. Be alert.Don’t let yourself be bamboozled.
