"Free" Medical Services- Are They Really Free?
You see it everywhere you go- FREE flu shots...FREE shingles shots...FREE pneumonia shots. FREE this...FREE that...
The fine print typically says something like, "with most insurances." You personally won't have to pay a fee but the services definitely are not actually FREE. Your insurance will be charged for the treatment or service. And if your insurance does not cover it-- well-- it won't be free. Maybe they should come up with some more appropriate wording.
