We Can No Longer Trust Our Doctors

As many people are coming to realize, you have put yourself in a compromising position just by going to your doctor. Your health is the last thing on their minds in too many cases. On one hand claiming not to know about the adverse and at times deadly effects of vaccines and medications, the alternative is that they do know, but don’t care. Many people have found themselves faced with a doctor whose ego is bigger than the room they sit in. Arrogantly obnoxious in many cases, they make it clear that being questioned about therapies is far beneath them. How dare you?

Our healthcare is supposed to be a partnership between doctor and patient. Instead it has become a system of tyranny; the doctor obviously perturbed that he/she actually had to see you, and even more so that you might dare to express your thoughts about what crap they are planning for you.

The movement of the public away from pharmaceuticals and vaccines and towards natural medicines is growing by the day. In response to this, the CDC, FDA and their partnering pharmaceutical corporations are racing to outlaw and neutralize this movement. Ignoring the massive numbers of deaths each year due to medications and vaccines, every effort is made to render alternative natural treatments unavailable.

Many physicians have less knowledge than their patients do concerning deadly medications and vaccines. We routinely see TV advertisements for medications that include the possible side effects, one of which is death. Why would any doctor prescribe medications that could cause the death of the individual? Even when patients attempt to report adverse effects, they are mocked and marginalized by their doctor. Rarely do they ever report these adverse symptoms to the CDC. The CDC claims they only receive an estimated 1% of all actual side effects, including death, as a result of the medications and vaccines. But your doctor will emphatically deny the adverse conditions you are reporting to them , instead claiming it is unrelated. Never mind that you didn’t have these symptoms before, you are just petulantly complaining.

Chemotherapy causes death in more than 25% of cancer patients

Too many are still recommending chemotherapy and radiation after a diagnosis of cancer. Both therapies known now to cause more premature deaths than the cancer itself. It would appear that many of them are more concerned with kickbacks, payoffs and other perks offered by pharmaceutical sales people, and too many will happily prescribe medications and vaccines, the side effects of which cause lifelong illness and the onset of disease. They don’t care. Or so it would seem.

Elderly people appear to be a targeted group for medical exploitation. Of course there are major opportunities for up-coding, surprise billing, and outright fraudulent charges that have been the catalyst for the scamming of 30-60 billion annually in Medicare costs attributable to medical providers. It isn’t the elderly who collect billions of dollars annually from Medicare….it’s those holier than thou medical providers. There isn’t an elderly individual anywhere in the country who can bill, or collect, funds from Medicare.

Long gone are the days when the family doctor was a trusted friend and partner in your family’s healthcare. Those doctors have been replaced by self absorbed, ego driven, white coated demi-gods who are far more concerned with being adored and feared than they ever could be with your health.

Fed Has 10-Year Plan to Save Banks, But No Plan to Save Americans Devastated By Fallout, Admits Powell

Is the Fed’s latest money funnel to unnamed trading houses on Wall Street part of the plan?

By Pam Martens and Russ Martens of Wall Street on Parade.

During his testimony to the Senate Banking Committee yesterday, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell let it slip out, for the first time, that the Federal Reserve has had a 10-year game plan to deal with the financial crisis. In response to a question on cyber threats from Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, Powell stated the following:

“They kind of pay us to be awake at night worrying about things. I would say that if you look at what happened in the financial crisis, we had a game plan there. We implemented it over the course of 10 years. I won’t say that it’s perfect or anything like that, but we have a plan that is meant to address those kinds of things.”

“Those kinds of things?” The financial crisis, fueled by corruption and lax regulation of Wall Street banks, destroyed the housing market in the U.S. and left the U.S. economy in tatters. Millions of Americans lost their jobs and their homes to foreclosure. The New York Fed was the supervisor of key Wall Street banks that caused this problem – shouldn’t it have had a 10-year game plan to prevent “Those kinds of things” instead of creating the game plan after the damage had been done?

Medicare for All—No Care for You

  • Democrat presidential candidates are sparring over how much to expand Medicare. Should it be Medicare for all, for people over 50 and children, or for “all who want it”? Does “all” include veterans, Native Americans, and military dependents, who now have their own government program? Does it include everybody who happens to be in the country, legally or illegally? And do the benefits include just what today’s Medicare beneficiaries get, or everything the candidate can think of—dental, eyeglasses, hearing aids, mental health treatment, addiction treatment, “sex-change” surgery, etc.? Does it even include long-term care, which the Affordable Care Act had to discard because it was unaffordable?
  • Medicare for All means government-directed, corporate-managed care. The managed-care “insurance” cartel, giant hospital chains, and private-equity-owned medical practices will make sure that you get your flu shot (likely mandatory), your anti-tobacco lecture, your silver sneakers, your 15 profitable “preventative” drugs, cross-sex hormones, abortion on demand—and eventually your terminal sedation.
  • Beyond that, you’re on your own—if there are any private options left and if you still have any after-tax money.

Proactive Legislation And The Inclusion Of Seniors In Our Society Are Steps To Protecting Them Against Predators

Proactive Legislation And The Inclusion Of Seniors In Our Society Are Steps To Protecting Them Against Predators

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

A disturbing aspect of an  elder law and trusts and estates practice is the discovery of elder abuse. According to the National Institute on Aging, hundreds of thousands of adults over the age of 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited each year. Elder abuse includes physical, emotional, and sexual abuse in addition to neglect and abandonment.  The perpetrators are often relatives or friends who have influence over the individual who may be vulnerable due to illness, disability, or age. Sometimes the abuse occurs at the hands of caregivers, whether in the home or in a facility.

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has introduced bipartisan legislation to help protect the elderly and infirmed by improving health care worker hiring practices in long-term care and medical facilities. Too often the elderly and infirmed are harmed as a result of the individuals working in the very facilities that are charged with helping rehabilitate them.

The Promote Responsible Oversight and Targeted Employee Background Check Transparency for Seniors Act, also known as “PROTECTS,” is an act that would expand access to the National Practitioner Data Bank for Medicare and Medicaid providers to conduct background checks on employees. Specifically, PROTECTS would include Medicaid/Medicare-certified skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, hospice programs, and pharmacies.

The Act has been endorsed by the American Health Care Association and the National Association for Home Care & Hospice. The aforesaid Data Bank would reveal malpractice for potential employees and assist facility administrators in their hiring and consequently affect the standards of care.

Hoaxes, Scams, and Your Medical Care

Hoaxes and scams have been dominating the news lately. We have a marginally known actor faking a hate crime supposedly to raise his Hollywood profile. His attempt to claw his way to the middle could have resulted in race riots, injury, and death. His punishment? All charges dropped.

The scandal about Hollywood and other elites buying their children’s way into top-rated universities really hit home. I remember when I had tutored some recent Vietnamese immigrants for a debate contest to win a scholarship for college. I could only hope that their hard work was rewarded and not wiped away by special favors bestowed on the “haves.”

Now we continue to have a slew of healthcare hoaxes: corporate stakeholders, legislators, and government agencies promise everything and have no accountability for their failure to keep their promises.

Take the large health systems’ claim that hospital consolidation and buying up physician practices would benefit consumers with cheaper prices from coordinated services and other unspecified savings. A major study of California hospital mergers found just the opposite. The analysis showed that the price of an average hospital admission went up as much as 54 percent. When the large hospital systems bought doctors’ groups, the prices rose even more. There was as much as a 70 percent increase in prices of medical services in geographic areas with minimal competition. This finding seems obvious to any of us who has the choice of shopping at Walmart or Target or Costco. More

The House Fiscal Year 2019 Budget and Its Effect on Seniors

Leave a comment

 

 

The House Budget Resolution for Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 would make cuts to the Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security programs and repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), actions which would be harmful to millions of Americans.

The House Budget Resolution for FY 2019, introduced by House Budget Committee Chairman Steve Womack (R-AR), was approved by the House of Representatives Budget Committee on June 21, 2018.  This budget proposes drastic cuts in federal spending for programs of importance to most low- and middle-income Americans while protecting nearly $2 trillion in tax cuts, which mainly benefit the very wealthy and large profitable corporations and dramatically increase our deficits and debt.  This paper summarizes some of the key proposals in the House Republican FY 2019 budget resolution that would affect seniors and people with disabilities who rely on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Medicare

The budget resolution proposes $537 billion in cuts to Medicare which would be achieved by ending traditional Medicare and increasing health care costs for beneficiaries.  Chairman Womack’s plan assumes savings for the federal government by privatizing Medicare and shifting costs to Medicare beneficiaries.

Privatizing Medicare with Vouchers/Premium Support Payments

Under premium support, when people become eligible for Medicare they would not enroll in the current traditional Medicare program which provides guaranteed benefits.  Rather they would receive a voucher, also referred to as a premium support payment, to be used to purchase private health insurance or traditional Medicare through a Medicare Exchange.  The amount of the voucher would be determined each year when private health insurance plans and traditional Medicare participate in a competitive bidding process.  Seniors choosing a plan costing more than the average amount determined through competitive bidding would be required to pay the difference between the voucher and the plan’s premium.  In some geographic areas, traditional Medicare could be more expensive.  This would make it harder for seniors, particularly lower-income beneficiaries, to choose their own doctors if their only affordable options are private plans that have limited provider networks.  Wealthier Medicare beneficiaries would be required to pay a greater share of their premiums than lower-income seniors.
