Patients Without Control of Payments

leave a comment »

You go to your doctor.

The doctor submits his bill.

The insurance company, medicare and/or medicaid pays the bill.

You may pay a deductible or co-pay.

Patients have little or no control of the payment process.

Why?

Because the system is about the medical industry easily making as much money as possible not about your health.

If your health was important, you would control payments.

Any medical provider who did not do his job, you could dock his payment accordingly.

If the provider refused to see you again, all future payments to the provider would automatically be cut by 10%.

The medical provider would have to satisfy the patient just like any other vendor of goods or services.

Doctors are not special except in extracting money.

More than half are under qualified.

Even more have no patient empathy.

 

 

The facts no one wants to read.

If the facts make you mad, it could be the truth hurts.

Incompetent Doctors

leave a comment »

The medical profession makes it as hard as possible to find out if a doctor has been disciplined or is currently on probation.

And more doctors should be disciplined; many should lose their license to practice permanently.

The medical profession protects its own; those that kill and maim alike.

California has 32 page list of doctors on probation.

The health care system needs a central list of all doctors with all disciplinary charges, whether upheld or not.

There should be another central list of all patient complaints; no doctor responses allowed.

Both lists have to be controlled by a non-governmental organization with no ties to the medical profession.

Both lists should be available, free of charge and with no qualifying(no sign in), over the internet.

Just go to the websites, then look-up or browse.

No one should suffer from an incompetent, unqualified doctor.

#HealthAlert — Hospital Infections Kill

leave a comment »

Every year over 80,000 Americans die from hospital infections.

The health care system has battled hospital-borne infections for years. But there has been little success.

Why can’t this scourge be stopped?

Because doctors and nurses are lazy.

They do not wash and disinfect their hands.

Since health care workers are clearly unwilling to do their job, it falls on patients to demand safety.

How do you protect yourself?

Simply do this: Before a health care worker touches you, ask politely if they have washed their hands. Wearing gloves is not a safe substitute for handwashing.

You should not feel awkward about asking. Health care workers know they should be washing. Even though it might feel uncomfortable, it could save your life.
