When you walk into a juice shop, you know exactly how much you’ll pay for a green smoothie. That’s true for almost everywhere you spend money—except your doctor’s office. You trust your doctor to run a test, and then you find out it wasn’t covered by insurance. You go in for what seems like a routine procedure, then get a bill (after insurance pays its share) for more than your monthly rent. Health care is a killer combo for anyone’s budget: unpredictable and expensive.
