Quotas in Healthcare

10 Jun

I was watching 60 Minutes on CBS last night and one of the topics was quotas/mandates on admissions put in place by Health Management Associates, a major provider with numerous hospitals/clinics in 15 states, with their ER doctors.

Although many doctors/individuals bore witness to this and they had actual documentation to back this, Health Management still denied it.

This was the re-airing of the article ans since the original airing the CEO has stepped down and the Justice Dept is looking into unfair practices of Health Management.

This shows the complexity (in the bad) of another variable to escalating costs in health care across the board with our system – not just insurance.
