Tenet healthcare paid $513 Million for Defrauding the United States in 2016, will this happened again in the wake of Covid madness?

What’s up tard rockets.

I’ve been hearing a lot of first hand accounts from nurses I bang that the hospitals are/have been acting in bad faith concerning the Covid pandemic and the funding from the government.

From my understanding the government through Medicare paid the hospital 13k for anyone admitted to the hospital with a positive test and 39k for anyone who goes on a ventilator. I’m not sure how you could disprove any of the positive tests, but I think you could make a case for ventilator usage based in patient data if they needed to be put on a ventilator. We all know now that the ventilators actually hindered a lot of people’s recovery so the government might not want to look into that.

So if I cut my finger, I go to the hospital for stitches, they give me a COVID test, it comes back positive, they just got an extra 13k from the gov. Even if that wasn’t the reason for my visit? Pretty wild. They are probably a big reason we didn’t have enough tests at the beginning because the hospital was using them on everyone who walked in the door.

Even if there is little physical proof of fraud to go after them, there is circumstantial evidence. I expect the authorities are talking about this right now and I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some changes and fines coming down the pike.

There has already been several people sentenced to jail for fraud related to Covid funding but Is there going to be an Enron level fraud that bankrupts a hospital network? Obviously that can’t happen because people would die.

Here’s the thing, we all know the government has really fucked up the healthcare system and a third party payer system (especially from the government) is not how you lower costs and make healthcare more widely available. This costs employers more money and in turn you, less pay raises, worse insurance coverage, higher copays and deductibles. Either way you are getting ass fucked. Welcome.

Well, there has already been a case

tl;dr

I’m concerned this will negatively effect hospital networks. The government was just giving out money and I know if any of us dipshits were in charge of the hospital we would probably rob the government blind.
