“When we can't see or compare prices, hospitals charge us whatever they want,” he said in his Power to the Patients message.

Grammy-nominated rapper Fat Joe has a few words for healthcare executives and believes that America’s healthcare system and the politicians attached to it are stealing from patients pocketbooks.

According to TMZ, the Bronx artist shared a message back in March calling out the hidden hospital fees and how it appears that the practice isn’t being reviewed. Teaming up with Power to the Patients, Joe’s mission demanded change in how the healthcare system does business.
