Profiting from Covid
Guess who? Hospitals and governors. Yep, the very people COUNTING the cases receive monetary incentives for Covid patients.
What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
Here are the startling facts.
Hospitals get $13,000 for each covid admission.
Hospitals get $39,000 for every covid patient on a ventilator. Even though ventilators are killing 8 out of 10 patients, they are still being put on vents... Now we know why.
KY gets $297,000 for each Covid case, whether the person is sick or not. I believe that includes deaths that have not already been counted in the testing. Could some be double-counted? Surely not.
Up to 90% of the positive tests could be wrong.
Yep! The two outrageous financial incentives were first revealed "out loud" in Scott Jensen's interview on Laura Ingraham's show.
Jensen on Ingraham Angle: "Right now Medicare has determined that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you’ll get paid $13,000. If that COVID-19 patient goes on a ventilator, you get $39,000; three times as much. Nobody can tell me, after 35 years in the world of medicine, that sometimes those kinds of things impact on what we do.”

The $297,000? Each state gets federal money for every reported Covid-19 case, whether person is sick or not. My state, KY, gets $297k for each one. Find your state here: beckershospitalreview.com/finance/state-by-state-breakdown-of-federal-aid-per-covid-19-case.html
That pesky PCR test. There are so many many many videos, websites, and articles done by reputable epidemiologists, doctors, scientists and researchers on the problems with testing... but nothing gets a believer's attention like an article in the NYT! Like this one (click pic to read):
Excellent report on the article by Liz Wheeler:
So the feds might be paying millions to states for tests that aren't really positive? This boggles the mind... Here's my question:
Why Weren't Incentives Given for Every CURED Patient?
Does anyone still think this is about a virus?
