It comes down to one thing that you are ignoring. Everything revolves around medicare. Medicare sets the standard, and private companies set prices based on the standard.
There are multiple private insurance companies, and different companies will pay different rates for different procedures.
And there are multiple hospitals, and different hospitals/doctors will get different rates.
Which goes to show you that it's not as simple as "What's 120% of Medicare? Okay. Done."
