Why Do Doctors Go Along with COVID Panic Porn and CDC Prescriptions? – American Thinker

There are two basic legs to the fraud.  First is the idea that the Centers for Disease Control is in any way concerned with a mission related to its name.  The failure of the CDC to endorse any treatment that did not emanate from its exalted halls should give us our first glint of clarity.  There are literally millions of physicians around the world, and the great bulk of them truly wish to treat their patients well.  Among those are thousands of researchers, a number far in excess of those at the CDC, the NIH, and other alphabet soup government agencies.  The very idea that outside researchers are incapable of discovering anything useful without the help of the bureaucrats in D.C. is hubris of the highest order.  And it prevents the CDC, the FDA, or any other such agency from considering the idea that maybe, just possibly, there might be intelligent life down here.  Mount Olympus cannot be threatened.

U&C bills are just one of the hundreds of rules that CMMS enforces.  Another is “Pay for Performance.”  Basically, P-f-P requires you to check a host of boxes when taking care of patients.  If you didn’t get that IV antibiotic in 20 minutes before the incision, you failed P-f-P and may not get paid.  The hospital won’t get paid to take care of the patient if there’s a complication.

So let us suppose that you use ivermectin to treat a COVID patient as he arrives in the hospital.  Ivermectin isn’t on the Medicare/Medicaid approved list of medications for COVID.  Your hospital pharmacy will call you up and give you grief.  After wasting a lot of time getting them to finally let you have it, you’ve had to cancel half of your office day.  The next day, you’ll get a visit from a coder, who will tell you that you didn’t use the approved treatment protocol and put the hospital in jeopardy because you flunked P-f-P.  By the way, that “coder” is the person who “helps” you use the proper ICD (billing) code for whatever the patient has in order for the hospital to make the most money.  But that’s not the worst of it.

Because you flunked P-f-P, that waves a red flag in front of the CMMS bulls, and you’re about to get gored.  They will wonder what other bad things you’ve done.  As soon as they find one, it gets flagged as “Medicare fraud,” and they will bill you for twice what you got paid as a penalty.  Can you guess how many other instances of fraud they’ll find if they look hard?  Do you have to ask why my partners would get upset if I published while I was still in practice?  By the way, CMMS can go two years back as they look for your crimes.  They can ultimately take your house, your car, and your wife’s poodle while they’re at it.
