This does not surprise me at all. Government intervention (the vast majority of the time)forces the market to do thing that cause price distortion.
I think you might be on to something. You could draw parallels to numerous events throughout history, especially the recent housing crisis, HUD decided to force banks to give out loans that they didn’t want to give to people who couldn’t pay them back, and it creates price distortion and crash of whatever market.
I don’t know if it would be appropriate to compare the housing crisis to our healthcare crisis, government action in both program have been substantially different.
Although I know I said that it could be, but pontificating upon it more they couldn’t be the same.
Someone seems confused.
Hospitals are increasingly buying physician practices. Now, more than half of all office-based physicians are employed by hospitals. The pressure to order tests and admit patients, or refer patients to other doctors who will admit them will only increase.
Excellent reporting by Steve Kroft!!! HMA is really under fire and hurting from it as well. Let justice come to those that have done wrong at HMA.
Sounds like their is a problem at HMA!
ALL evidence points to admitting more patients for profits.
Should government have the ability to force private companies to comply with their healthcare policies?
Yes, because of social contract.
As in the political theory? I’m not sure you can make the argument that business are under the same contract as citizens.
Business are just organizations of people choosing to do business in the U.S., so it would therefore apply.
Please explain your understanding of social contract theory to justify your claim.
Yes. If they (Private Companies) are fraudulently charging the Government for services that do not need to be rendered.
I wish I worked there!!! I’d check states laws and then wear a wire and record as many conversations as I could. I’d collect memos and other evidence. A whistleblower suite takes years, but people helping prove fraud to the government can share in the proceeds.
Couldn’t get to work the video but seems like it’s just more proof of the broken health care system we live under.
First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had
a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas
out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thanks!
