I am not an economist, but I feel that health insurance companies seem to fit into the “economic bubbles” of schemes and more that basically funnel money from one party to another. Clients pay for services and then basically get less than they bargained for in the long run. Premiums keep increasing, services keep decreasing, but corporate executives and shareholders keep reaping the financial rewards. It’s high time that government regulations were established to set standards on amounts collected versus amounts paid out for services. Too much money is redirected from care to profits. But guess what? No such regulations will ever happen because those profits are used to buy off congressional votes. While I am not totally sold on the idea of “Medicare for all,” I believe that if we can get rid of the for-profit insurance industry, better care can be had for a larger majority of our citizens.
Medical records sent for the wrong patient by the clinic. When notified of their mistake, Optimal Health refuses to respond.
Letter to Dr. Harry Taylor and Shannon Suhr, NP, at Aviva Health regarding worsening cognition and physical coordination of one of their patients that they seem to over-medicate without proper monitoring.
Dr. Hoyne wastes patient's time "investigating" other doctor's practices by grilling them on how they operate, what they charge, and more. Yet he charges the patient's insurance for his time that has nothing to do with true patient care!
The FDA lacks any real “teeth” to do their job.
Per a letter I wrote awhile back, I see that the Oregon PDMP is finally reporting the refills properly per my suggestion.
Pulled out some records to check some things and refreshed myself with something I had been meaning to post earlier but got distracted.
