Frazier Rehab, Anthem BC/BS, and govt's distortions of the market for health care

Frazier Rehab charged Anthem BC/BS $700/hour for Daniel to receive modest PT services. Anthem "negotiated" that down to $300/hour. (Those aggregate to $1.4M and $600K per year for the typical 2,000-hour work year. PT'er make about $40/hour.) I've made phone calls but haven't gotten anywhere useful.
a.) Always ask for prices.
b.) Avoid Frazier Rehab.
c.) Does anybody know who else I should call? 
d.) Thanks again to govt for jacking up these mkts so nicely.
e.) At least I get to write a fun op-ed.
