At one time, I thought HealthCare was about people working in conformity with each other. After giving the matter a great deal of thought, I’ve come to the conclusion that healthcare is, people working against each other. It’s like a bunch of rats crawling around a big piece of cheese, trying to be the first to get it.
This makes healthcare seem like the most outlandish, crookedest and most unethical practice on the planet, where competitors are trying to get to the money, before any of the others beat them to it.
Who makes money in HealthCare ?
This depends on the patient, who has very little control over the matter. Of course, the patient can live a healthy life, but there is no guarantee that he’ll see the sun come up tomorrow.
Healthcare is very much like three rats, each trying to get to that big piece of cheese. Whoever get there first depends on the patient’s good fortune or bad fortune, whichever the case may be.
The patient can be one of three things that determine who’s going to get there first:
When Insurance Companies make money
Blue Cross Blue Shield, and the rest of the health insurance companies do care about the patient, but not for the right reasons. With this type of care, a person is better off if placed in the hands of his worst enemy.
Remember the three things – WELL, SICK, DEAD. Insurance companies sure as hell don’t want you sick. Why? because the hard-earned premiums you’ve been paying each month is profit to the insurance company. Suddenly, you’re sick, they have to pay the doctors, and the profit goes to hell in a handbag.
Insurance companies want you WELL or DEAD. If they have a choice, it’s WELL, because you’re still alive to pay more premiums. If you’re well, and paying premiums, it’s all profit to Blue Cross. If you’re dead, the premiums still stay in the insurance company’s bank account, because the doctor can’t help you now. If a patient dies in the hospital, many insurance companies will not pay the doctors, because they’re dead. I’ll get into this again shortly, with an actual event that happened when I lost my wife to lung cancer.
Let’s recap. Insurance companies want you WELL or DEAD. That’s how they make their money.
When Doctors make money
Doctors sure as hell don’t want you WELL. If this is the case, you don’t need them, and they know it. They want you SICK. Why? Because they can run every test on you under the sun, and milk the insurance company for all they can get. This is just good business.
Doctors sure don’t want you DEAD. If you’re on your death bed, the last thing on your mind is paying the doctor. If you die, how in the hell is he going to collect from a corpse?
Immediately after my wife died of lung cancer, six years ago, I received one bill after another from doctors I’d never heard of. Blue Cross refused to pay another penny after they heard she’d died. I called every one of the doctors who sent a bill and just said that my wife had passed. Within ten seconds, each one said to me, “Your bill has been written off. You don’t have to worry about it.”
Let’s recap. Doctors want you SICK but not DEAD. That’s how they make their money.
When the Undertaker makes his money
The undertaker doesn’t give a damn if you’re WELL or SICK. He knows that eventually, you’ll be DEAD, which is exactly how he wants your ass.
Should I recap this? Why not?
Let’s recap. Undertakers want you DEAD as a doornail. That’s how they make their money.
