ST. LOUIS, MO. (KPLR) -Medical Sticker Shock I always thought it odd that gas stations post their price in big letters while so many other businesses don't.  Well maybe they should.

A co-worker told me about her recent sticker shock following a medical emergency.

Her daughter needed an emergency test from a hospital but when mom called to find out the cost she couldn't get an answer.

Instead she received her sticker shock when she received the bill.
There's a lot of talk in this country that we pay more for our health care while receiving less.

Maybe it's time to post prices for all procedures so we can help drive some of the costs down.

I'm JB and that's The Way It Oughta Be.
