    Assumes facts not in evidence! Ilhan Omar would have to have some intelligence to give some away.

    The more I see of the sniveling shitheads that comprise the current Democrat Communist Party the more I realize they are all anti American assholes and shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near intelligence information. If they’re not using the information to enrich themselves, friends and family they’re selling/trading it to our enemies to gain wealth or power.

    We really need to get the traitors out of the government and keep them out.

    Trump 2020 Toss out the trash.

      It was DJ Chump and his coterie of sniveling hooligans who colluded with the Russians and tried to blame Ukraine for stealing an election. If they’re not using information to enrich themselves, friends and family they’re selling/trading it to our enemies to gain wealth or power.

      Dump Trump: Toss out the trash.

        You’re starting to remind me of the Alec Baldwin character at the end of Team America.

        All your wonderful plans have fallen through and all you can do is mumble random catchphrases.

        The Hildabeast tried to get Ukraine to fix the ’16 election and everybody knows it. And trying to make yourself sound like a patriot is a real laugh.

        Global warming. Corporate America. Single Payer. Vladimir Putin.

      Kye,

      You seem to get angrier every day. Are you about ready to start shooting? Does PA have a red flag law?

      • formwiz says:

        Actually, that seems to be a question we might ask you, seeing as how even Congresscreeps are beginning to use the word censure.

        Ah, well, you can always hope Fatty Nadless will find something where Schiff For Brains didn’t. Of course by then, Trump will have the support of half of black America instead of a third.

    GOPKare: The future of US healthcare.

    *Here’s how surprise medical bills come about. Increasingly, doctors that work in emergency care aren’t employed by hospitals. Instead, they’ve become independent contractors, negotiating with insurers on a separate basis from hospitals. These doctors have used their negotiating leverage to extract exorbitant prices from insurers for their services. And still other docs extract even higher prices that insurers won’t accept. These out-of-network doctors then bill patients directly for their services, leading to surprise medical bills not covered by insurance.

    Why Private Equity Firms are Lobbying for Arbitration.

    The increasingly lucrative nature of out-of-network emergency care has attracted the attention of private equity firms, who have been snapping up the staffing agencies that charge extreme prices. The Blackstone Group bought TeamHealth for $6.1 billion in 2016, and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. bought Envision Healthcare, the parent of ER staffing agency EmCare, for $9.9 billion in 2018.Over the summer, those two companies financed over $28 million in advertisements opposing the Senate bill, and campaigning for arbitration as an alternative to market-based rates.

    The lobbyists love arbitration for a simple reason: it leads to higher prices. In New York, the largest state where arbitration is used for surprise bills, arbitrators are instructed to use the 80th percentile of hospital list prices as the benchmark for their decision. These hospital list prices are a lot like paying full fare for an airline ticket; they often come out to 10 or 20 times what Medicare pays emergency rooms for the same services. By benchmarking out-of-network prices at such a high rate, the New York law incentivizes ER doctors to raise their prices even higher, knowing that by doing so, the benchmark for arbitration will also go up.

    In addition, if you want to arbitrate a claim in New York, you have to pay the state a fee of $395. There are about 12 million out-of-network emergency-room bills in the country each year for people with private insurance; applying these fees to every surprise bill would increase health care costs by $4.7 billion annually.*

    And anywhere there is easy money to be gathered, the Vulture Capitalists show up. They add no value, in fact they make the “market” less efficient, but at least rich guys get to be richer by taking from the poor.

      Jeff,
      My goodness. Such a long comment showing you have zero knowledge of doctor and hospital billing and other procedures. Then the lying as well. Best to stick with what you know as a pharmacist. Maybe you could explain why drug prices in the US are so high, as that is closer to your knowledge base.

    • formwiz says:

      And where did we get this little screed? My wife worked in ER for a while and she was a hospital employee, so I can’t help but wonder how this little bit of paranoia (not to mention projection) came about.

      the Vulture Capitalists?

      And dare we assume you didn’t come up with this little bit of demagoguery all by yourself?

      Although I don’t doubt this is illustrative of your attitude generally.
