Capitol Imaging Services shares this story about ballooning health care costs in the state of Vermont, with one reason being:

The root of these increases are controversial charges known as “facility fees,” and they are routinely tacked on to patients’ bills not just for services actually provided in hospitals, but also by outpatient care centers and doctors’ offices simply because they’ve been purchased by hospital-based health care systems.

It has become clear that health care costs and any associated financial obligations insured by people as patients increasing significantly, if not dramatically, when the care comes from a hospital-based or hospital-owned practice or facility.
