Biden’s Bounty on Your Life: Hospitals’ Incentive Payments for COVID-19

1

By Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet and Ali Shultz

Upon admission to a once-trusted hospital, American patients with COVID-19 become virtual prisoners, subjected to a rigid treatment protocol with roots in Ezekiel Emanuel’s “Complete Lives System” for rationing medical care in those over age 50. They have a shockingly high mortality rate. How and why is this happening, and what can be done about it?

As exposed in audio recordings, hospital executives in Arizona admitted meeting several times a week to lower standards of care, with coordinated restrictions on visitation rights. Most COVID-19 patients’ families are deliberately kept in the dark about what is really being done to their loved ones.

The combination that enables this tragic and avoidable loss of hundreds of thousands of lives includes (1) The CARES Act, which provides hospitals with bonus incentive payments for all things related to COVID-19 (testing, diagnosing, admitting to hospital, use of remdesivir and ventilators, reporting COVID-19 deaths, and vaccinations) and (2) waivers of customary and long-standing patient rights by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

In 2020, the Texas Hospital Association submitted requests for waivers to  CMS. According to Texas attorney Jerri Ward, “CMS has granted ‘waivers’ of federal law regarding patient rights. Specifically, CMS purports to allow hospitals to violate the rights of patients or their surrogates with regard to medical record access, to have patient visitation, and to be free from seclusion.” She notes that “rights do not come from the hospital or CMS and cannot be waived, as that is the antithesis of a ‘right.’ The purported waivers are meant to isolate and gain total control over the patient and to deny patient and patient’s decision-maker the ability to exercise informed consent.”The Corona “War on Reality”. School Closures and the Hardships of Our Children

Creating a “National Pandemic Emergency” provided justification for such sweeping actions that override individual physician medical decision-making and patients’ rights. The CARES Act provides incentives for hospitals to use treatments dictated solely by the federal government under the auspices of the NIH. These “bounties” must paid back if not “earned” by making the COVID-19 diagnosis and following the COVID-19 protocol.

The hospital payments include:

  • A “free” required PCR test in the Emergency Room or upon admission for every patient, with government-paid fee to hospital.
  • Added bonus payment for each positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
  • Another bonus for a COVID-19 admission to the hospital.
  • A 20 percent “boost” bonus payment from Medicare on the entire hospital bill for use of remdesivir instead of medicines such as Ivermectin.
  • Another and larger bonus payment to the hospital if a COVID-19 patient is mechanically ventilated.
  • More money to the hospital if cause of death is listed as COVID-19, even if patient did not die directly of COVID-19.
  • A COVID-19 diagnosis also provides extra payments to coroners.

CMS implemented “value-based” payment programs that track data such as how many workers at a healthcare facility receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Now we see why many hospitals implemented COVID-19 vaccine mandates. They are paid more.

Outside hospitals, physician MIPS quality metrics link doctors’ income to performance-based pay for treating patients with COVID-19 EUA drugs. Failure to report information to CMS can cost the physician 4% of reimbursement.

Because of obfuscation with medical coding and legal jargon, we cannot be certain of the actual amount each hospital receives per COVID-19 patient. But Attorney Thomas Renz and CMS whistleblowers have calculated a total payment of at least $100,000 per patient.

What does this mean for your health and safety as a patient in the hospital?

There are deaths from the government-directed COVID treatments. For remdesivir, studies show that 71–75 percent of patients suffer an adverse effect, and the drug often had to be stopped after five to ten days because of these effects, such as kidney and liver damage, and death. Remdesivir trials during the 2018 West African Ebola outbreak had to be discontinued because death rate exceeded 50%. Yet, in 2020, Anthony Fauci directed that remdesivir was to be the drug hospitals use to treat COVID-19, even when the COVID clinical trials of remdesivir showed similar adverse effects.

In ventilated patients, the death toll is staggering. A National Library of Medicine January 2021 report of 69 studies involving more than 57,000 patients concluded that fatality rates were 45 percent in COVID-19 patients receiving invasive mechanical ventilation, increasing to 84 percent in older patients. Renz announced at a Truth for Health Foundation Press Conference that CMS data showed that in Texas hospitals, 84.9% percent of all patients died after more than 96 hours on a ventilator.

Then there are deaths from restrictions on effective treatments for hospitalized patients. Renz and a team of data analysts have estimated that more than 800,000 deaths in America’s hospitals, in COVID-19 and other patients, have been caused by approaches restricting fluids, nutrition, antibiotics, effective antivirals, anti-inflammatories, and therapeutic doses of anti-coagulants.

We now see government-dictated medical care at its worst in our history since the federal government mandated these ineffective and dangerous treatments for COVID-19, and then created financial incentives for hospitals and doctors to use only those “approved” (and paid for) approaches.

Our formerly trusted medical community of hospitals and hospital-employed medical staff have effectively become “bounty hunters” for your life. Patients need to now take unprecedented steps to avoid going into the hospital for COVID-19.

Patients need to take active steps to plan before getting sick to use early home-based treatment of COVID-19 that can help you save your life.

Dr Vliet & Ali Shultz, Thank you for this compilation of expert studies! Yes, we live in an oligarch captured system in which the people have little control over institutional Media, Finance, Religion, Education, Health. Like many ‘critiques’ however, there is little analysis of what average people can do with our own resources locally. Are we distracted to not recognize & organize our own collective resources, ownership & decision-making?
Are we distracted to not recognize the appropriately scaled intimate longterm knowledge & biosphere based healing capacities, in which the candle flame may be waning but still burning? What difference will local care & share ‘bubbles’ make to patient health & recovery from a myriad of health challenges as well as COVID-19?

WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP EVERYONE THRIVE IN FAMILY & CULTURAL NETWORKS WHERE WE ALREADY LIVE & WORK? In our present society 70% of people live today in the US, Canada & worldwide live in MULTIHOME-DWELLING-COMPLEXES (eg. Apartment, Townhouse & Village-clusters) in USA, Canada & worldwide . The average size of Multihome is 32 dwelling-units or ~100 people. 20% of multihome-dwellers; are living intentionally in extended-family proximity, where young, old, handicapped & middling aged can enjoy each other’s company & collaborate. All humanity’s worldwide ‘indigenous’ (Latin ‘self-generating’) ancestors on every continent cultured ~100 (50-150) person Multihomes (eg. Longhouse-apartment, Pueblo-townhouse & Kanata-village). https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/relational-economy/extending-our-welcome-participatory-multi-home-cohousing
RELATIONAL ECONOMY
Biosphere sourced economy & loving-relationships for proximal (walking) Circular-‘participatory’ (L ‘part’ = ‘share’) economy collaboration arise in the specialized Domestic, Industrial & Commercial Production-Society-Guilds PS-G. PS-G employed time-based equivalency accounting of the String-shell Value systems (eg. Wampum in North-America, Quipu in South-America, Cowrie in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia & all of the islands, Bei in China etc.) worldwide. Its at this level of collective home & domestic-economy ownership that we can create more effective ‘Health-islands’ & ‘Circular-Relational economies’, where natural-living best-practices become the norm. Accounting needs to recognize collective Domestic ‘economy’ (Greek ‘oikos’ = ‘home’ + ‘namein’ = ‘care-&-nurture’) first with Industry & Commerce as subsets.

DO-WE-KNOW-WHO-WE-ARE-? community-economy web-software is designed to: 1) Catalogue our talents, goods, services, resources & dreams, 2) Map individual & business relations locally for proximal association & collaboration, 3) Account for local buying, selling & investment together, 4) Communicate, agreements, contracts, record-keeping & library. As worldwide digital technology becomes more sophisticated, dynamic humans will correspondingly organize locally so as to be able to engage the system with full privacy & sovereignty. To culture these system functions we need to know each other locally. Here’s a software, our Sustainable Development Association & Indigene Community have developed to help make these ‘Community’ (Latin ‘com’ = ‘together’ + ‘munus’ = ‘gift-or-service’) Notation tools available & helpful to ‘economic’ (Greek ‘oikos’ = ‘home’ + ‘namein’ = ‘care-&-nurture’) relationship building everywhere.

What stops each of us from organizing our own multihome & neighbourhood resources, to do what we can?
‘SOCIAL’ (L ‘Socius’ = ‘friend’) MEDICINE
We provide much better care locally with innate experts, friends, family, neighbours, systematically organized through Cataloguing, Mapping, Accounting & Communication in the average ~100 person multihome, than segregating individuals in inappropriately scaled Hospital, Long-term-care-residences, group-homes etc. where an average 8 staff per day = ~3000 changes of rotating, shift-work staff per year, with none having a holistic intimate loving connection. Cultivating proactive plant-based nutrition & lifestyle living medicine delivers the greatest benefit for the most people. Certain expertise through proper cultural record-keeping will identify the specialized expert teams who deliver results, for those ‘rare’ medical services, which can’t be treated locally. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/structure/3-economic-memory
