State Senator and doctor exposes Medicare payouts for COVID-19 patients
April 13, 2020 by 1EarthUnited


More corruption from our inept administration… any surprise?

My conversation with State Senator and doctor who exposes Medicare payouts for COVID-19 patients

As you’ll see by end of this article, the specific decisions about money mentioned here affect life and death outcomes for patients.
A state senator has suddenly come out of nowhere and made big news.
My conversation with Minnesota State Senator, Dr. Scott Jensen, took place after I read the explosive statement he made to FOX News, on April 9th.  So let’s start with his earlier FOX statement:
“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 [don’t] [have] impact on what we do…”
I reached out to Senator Jensen, and obtained clarification.  Jensen told me his remark pertained to patients with Medicare coverage.  And the 2 payouts he mentioned are standard insurance payments from Medicare which would go to the hospital.
Of course, he explained, some hospitals have a pay-share plan with their staff doctors.  Therefore, a windfall for the hospital is passed along to those doctors.
Jensen told me: Take a Medicare patient who is diagnosed with simple non-COVID pneumonia.  The hospital would receive a one-time Medicare lump-sum payout of $4600.
However, if that Medicare patient is diagnosed with COVID-19 pneumonia, the Medicare coverage is a one-time $13,000 payment.  And if the hospital puts that COVID-19 pneumonia patient on a ventilator, the one-time payment is $39,000.  NOTE: It doesn’t matter how long these patients stay in hospital—there is only going to be one lump-sum insurance payment.
So, I infer, there are several types of financial incentives for hospitals—
ONE: Diagnose as many people as possible with COVID-19.
TWO: Diagnose as many people as possible with COVID-19 who have light symptoms—making it easy to move them out of the hospital quickly.
THREE: Put as many COVID patients as possible on ventilators for as short a time as possible.
Under the heading of “diagnose as many patients as possible with COVID-19,” there is also the key question of what constitutes “a COVID-19 patient”—and how the use of that label can be multiplied and manipulated.   Senator Jensen made a few choice comments to FOX on this subject as well.
From FOX News: “Dr. Scott Jensen, a Minnesota family physician who is also a Republican state senator, told ‘The Ingraham Angle’ Wednesday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines for doctors to certify whether a patient has died of coronavirus are ‘ridiculous’ and could be misleading the public.”
“Host Laura Ingraham read Jensen the [CDC] guidelines, which say: ‘In cases where a definite diagnosis of COVID cannot be made but is suspected or likely (e.g. the circumstances are compelling with a reasonable degree of certainty) it is acceptable to report COVID-19 on a death certificate as ‘probable’ or ‘presumed.'”
“In response, Jensen told Ingraham the CDC’s death certificate manual tells physicians to focus on ‘precision and specificity,’ but the coronavirus death certification guidance runs completely counter to that axiom.”
“‘The idea that we are going to allow people to massage and sort of game the numbers is a real issue because we are going to undermine the [public] trust,’ he said. ‘And right now as we see politicians doing things that aren’t necessarily motivated on fact and science, their trust in politicians is already wearing thin’.”
“…Jensen then told Ingraham that under the CDC guidelines, a patient who died after being hit by a bus and tested positive for coronavirus would be listed as having presumed to have died from the virus regardless of whatever damage was caused by the bus.”
“…Jensen also reacted to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s response to a question about the potential for the number of coronavirus deaths being ‘padded,’ in which the NIAID director described the prevalence of ‘conspiracy theories’ during ‘challenging’ times in public health.”
“‘I would remind him that anytime health care intersects with dollars it gets awkward,’ Jensen said.”
Here is where everything Scott Jensen is saying can turn very grim—
As I’ve reported, New York ER doctor, Cameron Kyle-Sidell, has made public statements about the misuse of ventilators with supposed COVID-19 patients.  He’s stated that some of these patients actually have functioning lungs.  Their immediate and dire life-threatening situation is straight oxygen deficit, as if they have high-altitude sickness.  But pressure on the lungs, applied by the use of ventilators via standard rigid protocols, he says, can cause damage, and even death.
Imagine what would happen if another way—NOT ventilators—was found to usefully and safely deliver oxygen to these patients.
The hospitals wouldn’t get their huge $39,000 payout for each Medicare patient put on a ventilator.
What do you think a hospital would say…what decision would the hospital make…would the hospital allow a better and safer and necessary delivery system for oxygen?  For every labeled “COVID-19 patient” whose desperate emergency is a straight deficit of oxygen?
Would the hospital forego all those huge Medicare coverage payouts?

Should Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx be Criminally Charged? They Know the COVID-19 Victims are Elderly Seniors and Diabetics and Chose to Scare US Public Instead
Date: April 12, 2020 Author: Nwo Report  

COVID19 UPDATES - State Senator and doctor exposes Medicare payouts for COVID-19 patients plus MORE Fauci-600x361


Source: Jim Hoft
Tens of millions of American workers will lose their jobs because of inept government officials and their bogus models.
For weeks now we have known that the victims of the coronavirus are elderly seniors with an AVERAGE age around 80, diabetics and the morbidly obese.
The doctors at the daily coronvirus press briefings know this disease affects elderly seniors and those with underlying health problems.
Why do they not stress this fact?

Doctors KNOW coronavirus affects only obese, sickly or diabetic Americans.
Advertisement – story continues below
Less than 1% of coronavirus deaths are those Americans with NO underlying conditions.
In Italy 99% of the coronavirus victims were 60-years-old and older!
In Massachusetts where they release daily coronavirus numbers – only 2 of 96 coronavirus victims were under 60!
The average age of COVID-19 victim was over 76-years-old!
These facts are public knowledge.
But this is not what is reported to the American public.
If the American pubic knew that more 100-year-olds are dying than those under age 50 would they choose to shut down the economy?
Advertisement – story continues below
Would the American public shut down the economy if they know that those under 30 are not dying from the disease except in very rare circumstances?
The American public is not being told the truth.
This is horrible injustice to those who will lose their income and security.
Will anyone be held accountable?

Sweden and Brazil Kept Their Economies Open and Their COVID-19 Numbers Are No Worse than US

While the US shuts down all commerce for weeks and destroys the economy, other countries like Sweden and Brazil are doing the opposite and allowing the China coronavirus to run its course.

Data indicates there no material differences in fatalities between the three countries leading the casual observer to question why is the US killing its economy?

The US continues to prevent nearly all commerce from occurring to combat the China coronavirus.  Many other countries are following suit.  But some countries like Sweden and Brazil are keeping their countries open for business.
Data shows that the fatalities related to the coronavirus in these countries are very similar to those in the US.

4 Ways To Be Civilly Disobedient in the Face of the Corona Ban
j   April 12, 2020
By Allan Stevo
April 10, 2020
 
Let’s face it, these corona shelter-in-place orders are illegal and ineffective . Politicians, however, aren’t just going to back down over such a grandiose idea. They need to be pushed. The bigger the government mistake, the harder it is to kill. And the corona bans need to be killed if they are going to die.
Case in point, even the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, more than two weeks ago, acknowledged that the hasty and heavy-handed corona ban may have backfired , saying “If you re-thought that or had time to analyze that public health strategy, I don’t know that you would say ‘Quarantine everyone.’” Yet the corona ban remains firmly in place in New York.
Sometimes fell swoops work to enact change, other times a general change in attitude might get the job done. With the corona bans needing to be killed, here are a few ways to exert pressure.
Contact Your Favorite Closed Businesses, Ask Them Not Only To Re-Open But To Sue The City and State
Imagine this: local government asked them to shut down their livelihood for no good reason. You are asking them to protect their livelihood with every good reason. Some consider it poor form to act against the government. To the contrary, it’s wonderful behavior to tell your government to quit being so boneheaded when it is being boneheaded.
It’s certainly being boneheaded.
Send a personalized email to every closed business that you currently miss. Tell them what you miss about them and why. Tell them what a farce this corona ban is and why. Ask them to sue the city and state imposing a ban on them. Offer to help them find a lawyer.
If you need ammunition to describe the farce: 1.)this is illegal (you can’t be stopped from assembling with others, worshiping, or doing business with others), 2.) all services are essential , 3.) “essential worker” is a term which hauntingly evokes memories of the worst of the human experience , and 4.) for the utilitarians: this ban is not working : based on publicly available data from a large Oregon hospital, based on data from Italy about who gets it: the elderly and infirm (99% of those who died in Italy had other illnesses that predisposed them to die ), and based on data from China collected by international research teams on how it is spread (85% through people sharing households , not through schools, businesses, or similarly casual contact – household contact is the driver of the epidemic).
Oh, and evil Florida – un-shuttered for two weeks longer than New York – has 13x fewer corona cases than New York in full lockdown.
David Stockman writes : “The infection rate in New York is 13.4X higher than Florida’s, while New York’s hospitalization and death rates are 21X and 22X higher, respectively.”
With so many potential variables in place, obviously it’s not the lockdown that’s the effective variable. The lockdown doesn’t work against corona . Researchers have known that for years. Far from being data-driven, there’s a great deal of uncertainty around the effectiveness of many of these dramatic interventions taking place. One must wonder: “If proven data is not driving these heavy-handed measures, then what is?”
Your email is intended to get your favorite businesses to quit participating in this farce and to re-open.
If at first they aren’t warm to the idea, keep bringing that up to them.
Get Your Church Re-Opened For Easter
Get your pastor on the phone and ask him if there will be a church service on Easter. Do that everyday. Get your church council on the phone. Get everyone who you normally talk to in your congregation on the phone. If the church opens, they don’t have to attend church. No one is forcing them. But if the church stays closed, it harms those who want to attend, perhaps even feel a need to attend during these dire days. Those are the people church is most there for: those who need it.
To be courageous is among the roles of the church in society. “If no courage flows from faith then there is no living faith,” wrote a brave clergyman to me this past week.
It is cowardly to keep the church doors closed , especially in a time when the steadfast nature of the church is most needed in the face of such great anti-religious, secular pressure. Somewhere there is a Marxist laughing at the folly of Christian pastors lining up to be the first to virtue signal loudest by closing their churches down most dramatically.
Get your church re-opened by Easter – April 12 – as Becky Akers inspirationally calls believers to do. There are certainly dozens, probably hundreds, maybe even thousands of congregations across the country meeting in violation of the illegal local orders.
Some are meeting in open defiance of the illegal lockdown orders . Some are meeting in their sanctuaries behind closed doors. Some are even said to be meeting in homes, like Bethany Slavic Missionary Church in California.
Early Christians met in secret and were persecuted by both friend and foe. The courage being shown by some Christians today will serve as a source of pride for ages. The cowardly will want to sweep what took place in these months under the rug.
If they don’t re-open, get some friends together on the front steps or in the parking lot. Please celebrate the resurrection in a way worthy of being called glorious.
Eventually Pastors will open their doors to their parishioners who congregate outside each Sunday.
Get Your Favorite Restaurant To Serve You Speakeasy Style
David Hathaway paints a picture of what happens when heavy-handed politicians ignore market pressures: black markets arise.When a very much in-demand mug of beer was deemed illegal, speakeasies arose. When a sit-down meal is deemed illegal, expect restaurants to do the same. The more people who ask for this service, the more likely it is to occur, until even the cops are doing it in the face of the rules that even they know are silly.
There’s a reason a group like Oathkeeprs exist. Plenty of the people enforcing the law know how rotten the law is.
Lead Small Rebellions
Encourage those around you to ask questions. Laugh at the municipal “park ranger” when they come up to you and inform you that there might be viruses on park benches. Undermine their sense of pride in what they are doing. Encourage strangers around you to listen in and join. During regular times, I would say encouraging strangers is a bad approach since at least 3/4 of those around you are likely to offer the Nuremberg defense: “Leave the park ranger alone, they are just following orders.”
But right now those people are at home watching Fox, CNN, and the rest – getting their fill of fear porn and having their daily talking points downloaded to them.
The people who venture out into public, at this moment, are overwhelmingly people who aren’t falling for it. The lockdown has done you the favor of showing you who half of the troublemakers in your neighborhood are: they are the ones who leave the house. And they don’t believe what they are being fed. Open up the door to conversation, exchange contact info, get memorably disobedient together, and you might have a lifelong liberty chum that you might never have met any other way.
Need even more indication that you’re talking to a friendly: They didn’t don the obligatory fear mask starting on April 3, 2020, when the government started the top-down national fear mask movement.
Make Friends
To the last point: Take the risk of getting to know the people who venture out. Before you part ways, simply ask “How can I keep in touch with you?” For the moment, phone number and email seem to be more censorship resistant than social media. Send them this article. Invite them along on your acts of civil disobedience.
Be A Messenger Of Truth To Those Around You
Agitprop is everywhere. Lies are all around. Just be a listening voice with a few carefully selected facts and you will almost certainly beat the agitprop within your circle of friends. That can be as easy as being a reliable source. Not everyone will want to hear about it, but there are a lot of people who know that something isn’t right, and just identifying them is half the battle.
Ask People “Have You Run Your Own Numbers On This?”
A gadfly I know has brilliantly asked this question to anyone who thinks they know the whole story. If someone thinks they know the whole story about corona, chances are they are both wrong and partisan. I don’t mean politically partisan, I mean more interested in who is speaking than in the veracity of what is being said.
Curiosity is necessary around such quick developments and around a situation we are assured is so “novel.” Pretending to know the whole story in a moment like this is pure deceit. A question like “Have you run your own numbers on this, yet?” opens up that path to curiosity.
If they haven’t, encourage them to go to the CDC website and to see who gets harmed by corona, what age groups, what co-morbitidies. Or go to Italian government data  and run the numbers or to publicly available data from Oregon . World Health Organization corona data has notably been deemed too full of errors to be considered reliable.
Honestly, no data is completely reliable in the midst of a fast-moving ongoing crisis. It is field data that requires relatively uninformed apples-to-oranges comparisons, that will take years to process. However, even looking at the CDC data can help people to get past the headlines and the fear and to feel empowered to dive into the data with a sense of curiosity, rather than being told to passively listen fearfully to anyone claiming to be an expert.
Call The Police And Complain
I’m not talking about snitching on your neighbors  for living their lives. I’m talking about calling the police to complain about the police. Give them an earful. Any corona nonsense you see from the police call it in. Did the police approach people correctly social distancing and harass them? Get their badge number and call it in. Did the police tell people following the law to move along? Get their badge number and call it in. Or ignore the badge number and just call it in anyway. Innocent bystanders can be very powerful. Did you read a news report you didn’t like? Find that sheriff’s number and call it in. Don’t be apologetic about it either. Demand that the police be on their best behavior during these tense times.
This police department – (818) 878-1808 – as an example, probably deserves a phone call for the sheer hypocrisy of violating the pointless rule of the week, “social distancing,” by coming in close contact with and arresting a man who was paddle-boarding in the middle of the ocean , nowhere near anyone. With behavior like that, clearly this isn’t about a virus anymore. This has grown into something so much more ugly.
That doesn’t change the practical fact that no one likes to be complained to. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. If the good people are complaining more than the snitches, the police will sooner sit on their hands than to go out and engage in provocative behavior that will just bring more paperwork and hassle.
Go Outside To the “Closed” Parks & Beaches
If cautious mothers across the country can go out and try to keep life as normal as possible for their 15-month olds by maneuvering around barricades and entering parks, many others have little to fear from doing so. Reason is not yet dead. Pushing on the periphery at which reason must fight, protects reason.
Don’t Wear A Face Mask
Face masks are tradition. They aren’t a data-based intervention. Not only are they ineffective, they are frightening to people. Their well-established limitations are demonstrated in this 2016 article , written before face masks curiously became a hot-button political issue.
Having a masked face – like that of a bank robber – pop into your field of vision multiple times daily is like sounding an alarm multiple times daily that something is very wrong. I’m not sure who that could possibly help.
If you wear a face mask write something on it like “All Lies” or “Corona Hoax.”
Say “Whatever, Man”
US News reports “Officials Losing Patience with Corona Scofflaws ”. Associated Press reports “California Losing Patience With Those Violating Stay At Home Orders .” Timothy Williams reports “What I observed was Californians losing patience with ‘officials’ and their ‘orders .’”
“As Tom Luongo recently noted, we will defeat the tyrants not by marching through their institutions, nor by violent resistance, but simply because a growing plurality are tuning them out.”
Williams quips: “Wouldn’t it be a delightful irony if Californians led the fight against statism with a collective ‘whatever, man.’”
There are things about California worthy of derision, but the dismissive “whatever, man,” is a beautiful example of dispassionate civil disobedience in a moment that badly needs emotional de-escalation and escalation of rational thought.
Disobey
To disobey is the imperative. As Gary Barnett writes  “Once any country’s people succumb to obedience, all that is left is slavery .” As Henry David Thoreau writes “Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.” If there is one thing you do during your day, please let it be to disobey.
Be Sure To Smile A Little Each Day, Please
This is the worst thing that has happened to America in decades, it promises to be worse than 9/11. Corona is not the worst thing. The corona response is the worst thing.
Millions will die, and untold numbers of lives will be ruined, because of the corona communism in place. Kevin Ryan takes a cursory glance at the death toll of the corona response and attributes at least 2 million additional American deaths to government that would not have taken place had government not intervened.
If you take a moment once or twice a day to smile at the absurdity of it all, you’ll probably be in a better thinking frame of mind than if you just seethe in anger at the utter stupidity of it all and the human misery that’s been needlessly caused. Clear thinking is better than seething.
And while this is not guaranteed, perhaps it would also be good to smile once or twice a day at the real possibility of what happens next. This could all backfire in the faces of the experts who got us into this mess. This could be an event that doesn’t bring us down the road of “V for Vendetta,” but brings us toward greater liberty.
My hunch is that this will backfire . But only time will tell.
The bad lessons of the last century, the Century of the Great State (1917-2017), during which many millions died at the hands of socialists and other collectivists, is being repeated in this horrific first test of this new era.
The intellectual battle currently taking place is vital and will help dictate how future, similar battles will turn out. It is not a physical battle. It truly is a battle for hearts and minds. Western intellectuals are so notably out of touch, that it will be a surprise if this crisis ends in anything other than reduced trust in and reduced influence for the political and intellectual classes.
Unfortunately, I would expect more hysterical outcries like this largely manufactured crisis as the Western intellectual class struggles to be heard and to maintain relevance.
The apparent waning influence of the Western intellectual class that has brought about this crisis, is a cause to smile.
It can be no surprise that collectivists care not for the harm that they do. That is their nature. Reality is their enemy. Humanity is their enemy. Individuals are their enemy. Truth is not the goal. Clearer thinking or better comprehension of reality is not the goal. Their ideas and those who ascribe to them are their allies. Those are replayed in broken-record fashion with minor cosmetic changes. If you need any more proof of this, merely look at the effects of this thinking writ large across the Century of the Great State. Collectivists have proven what will come when society is left in their hands. It is the duty of individuals to prevent oneself from being so oppressible by the collectivists.
Courage Is Contagious
Show courage. Do not give into evil, but proceed ever more boldly against it. Call things as you see them. Ask the simple questions. Let others see you do it. Your courage will be contagious.

HUGE: Ali Mokdad- The Researcher Behind Shady IHME Coronavirus Study – Was Forced to Retract Major Study for CDC over Computational Errors
Date: April 12, 2020 Author: Nwo Report

COVID19 UPDATES - State Senator and doctor exposes Medicare payouts for COVID-19 patients plus MORE Ali-mokdad-ihme-600x349
Source: Jim Hoft

On Thursday, Dr. Ali Mokdad, a rep for the Bill Gates-funded IHME dodged questions about the low Coronavirus cases in Japan despite not doing “across the country lockdowns” like the U.S.
Advertisement – story continues below
He didn’t answer the question because he has no answer.
The University of Washington IHME Center has been putting out numbers on the coronavirus pandemic for several weeks now… Each one was just as sketchy as the last.
It is important to note that the IHME models predicting hundreds of thousands of dead Americans had social distancing and total lockdowns baked into the projections.
TRENDING: Barack Obama Uses Coronavirus as Excuse to Push For ‘Vote-by-Mail’ in November
Americans were told that if they all stayed home and only went to the grocery store when necessary, over 200,000 would still die.
The IHME keeps revising their models because they have been WAY off — the latest projection model was revised downward from 2,000,000 projected deaths to about 60,000 deaths.
Advertisement – story continues below
On Friday night Ali Mokdad joined Bill Hemmer on FOX News and announced that Washington, New York and California are going to start going down in their number of coronavirus deaths.
The IHME continues to adjust their models from extreme panic to something more reasonable with each passing day.
It is shocking to watch respected journalists and pundits still give this shady group any authority.

There isn’t much about Ali Mokdad’s biography. However, in 2005 he had to print a retraction in the Journal of the American Medical Association for overestimating deaths from obesity. His models were grossly exaggerated.
So why was he ever trusted?
Ali Mokdad’s “Actual Causes of Death in the United States, 2000,” published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2005 was widely panned.
Advertisement – story continues below
Mokdad’s team purported to demonstrate that 400,000 deaths in the United States per year could be attributed to overweight and obesity, leading the CDC to begin a wide-ranging campaign to reduce obesity rates.

Ali Mokdad is an epidemiologist who authored a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) study in 2004 that received widespread criticism for its methodology, “Actual Causes of Death in the United States, 2000,” published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). Mokdad’s team purported to demonstrate that 400,000 deaths in the United States per year could be attributed to overweight and obesity, leading the CDC to begin a wide-ranging campaign to reduce obesity rates.

Mokdad’s results were suspect, however. Mokdad’s team was forced to print a correction in a 2005 issue of JAMA acknowledging a computational error that overstated the number of deaths from overweight and obesity.

Subsequent research in JAMA demonstrated that Mokdad’s methodology was suspect as well. A different CDC research team found that a mere 25,000 deaths could be attributed to overweight and obesity combined, since overweight status was in fact protective against early death.

The model that Mokdad and his team used was questioned before the study was published. CDC scientists who reviewed the study noted the following (all emphases added):

Methods used to calculate number of deaths due to obesity were incorrect and possibly miscalculated … The use of the improper formula is a rather serious mistake to make. At the time this study was being conducted, the scientific literature had several papers describing potential bias. Following Allison et al. in using an incorrect method was not justified. From the cross-clearance, it seems as if this bias from the wrong formula was pointed out to the authors

The knowledge about inappropriate use of adjusted relative risks in certain attributable-fraction formulas was in the literature prior to the preparation of this manuscript and was apparently shared with the authors prior to publication.

My general conclusion is that the Mokdad et al. paper makes some bold statements, bolder than the original McGinnis and Foege paper, which might have been better off being presented as a policy exercise rather than a scientific study; the estimates seemed a combination of scientific calculation and expert opinion. Furthermore, the scientific reviewers of the paper who mentioned the problems were not taken as seriously as they could have been.
