Our for-profit medical industry

WE NOW HAVE AN INDUSTRIAL-MEDICAL-COMPLEX IN AMERICA. THIS MONSTER DID NOT JUST ‘EVOLVE’, IT WAS DEVIOUSLY CONTRIVED IN THE LATE 60s AS A COMPONENT OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER!

Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills are Killing Us

Essentially Mr Brill discovered that there is a two tiered pricing system in effect today. This two-tiered system is implemented by both hospitals and medical clinics. It is for this very reason that even the wealthy find it difficult to self-insure. If patients could actually afford to pay for their own hospital/medical care, both the hospitals and the doctors would be free of the stringent restrictions imposed on them today by both the insurance industry and the government. Physicians could practice according to the ‘best interest of the patient’ and NOT the ‘best interest of the bottom line’. When hospitals were non-profit institutions the ‘best interest of the patient’ was the norm.

This ‘gradual’ change in the practice of medicine was announced at a pediatric conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1969: New World Order plans exposed by insider in 1969

The following are excerpts:

PLANNING THE CONTROL OVER MEDICINE

The next topic is Medicine. There would be profound changes in the practice of medicine. Overall, medicine would be much more tightly controlled. The observation that was made in 1969 that, “Congress is not going to go along with national health insurance, is now, abundantly evident. But it’s not necessary, we have other ways to control health care”. These would come about more gradually, but all health care delivery would come under tight control. Medical care would be closely connected to work. If you don’t work or can’t work, you won’t have access to medical care. The days of hospitals giving away free care would gradually wind down, to where it was virtually non-existent. Costs would be forced up so that people won’t be able to afford to go without insurance. People pay for it, you’re entitled to it. It was only subsequently that I began to realise the extent to which you would not be paying for it. Your medical care would be paid for by others. Therefore, you would gratefully accept, on bended knee, what was offered to you as a privilege. Your role being responsible for your own care would be diminished.

The way this works, everybody has made dependent on insurance and if you don’t have insurance then you pay directly; the cost of your care is enormous. The insurance company, however, paying for your care, does not pay that same amount. If you are charged, say, $600 for the use of an operating room, the insurance company does not pay $600; they only pay $300 or $400. That differential in billing has the desired effect: It enables the insurance company to pay for that which you could never pay for. They get a discount that’s unavailable to you. When you see your bill you’re grateful that the insurance company could do that. And in this way you are dependent, and virtually required to have insurance. The whole billing is fraudulent.
