In one baffling tweet, Chilli's just explained a crucial aspect of how healthcare works

Chilli’s  — the casual dining chain — is now using Twitter to help customers understand healthcare. 

On Wednesday, Twitter user subtlerbutler tweeted: “there’s this weird thing you can do, where, if you need information from someone, you can ask them instead of the internet.” 

He continued: “you can just blindly ask facebook. someone will know! talk to facebook. or chillis. Sometimes @Chillis knows.” 

“I really want to know what questions you have for Chilli’s,” Twitter user ScottBaiowulf asked. 

“My co-pay at my primary care doc is supposed to be $US0 but then I always get charged more money later even for regular checkups,” subtlerbutler tweeted in response. “WHY CHILLIS.” 

Surprisingly, the casual dining chain did indeed have an answer. 

“If your deductible hasn’t been met, your copay is how much it costs to simply leave your doctor’s office,” Chilli’s tweeted. “They can charge way more later.”

It’s been a busy week for Chilli’s. On Monday, the chain rolled out a new menu that cut 40% of items to focus on the classics: burgers, ribs, and fajitas.
