CDC director acknowledges hospitals have a monetary incentive to overcount coronavirus deaths
U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield agreed that some hospitals have a monetary incentive to overcount coronavirus deaths as they do deaths for other diseases.
“I think you’re correct in that we’ve seen this in other disease processes, too. Really, in the HIV epidemic, somebody may have a heart attack but also have HIV — the hospital would prefer the [classification] for HIV because there’s greater reimbursement,” Redfield said during a House panel hearing Friday when asked by Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer about potential “perverse incentives.” (See link for article)
Due to Dr Jensen this became public knowledge, but he paid for it, as have many doctors who dare defy the narrative: https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2020/08/01/censored-dr-simone-fired-from-hospital/ (I include the fact the State Medical Board came after Jensen in the comment section. Thankfully the case was dropped)
This same CDC has monetary incentives to undercount Lyme disease. They also NEVER, EVER will admit people can be chronically infected because that would stop lucrative vaccine development and manufacturing.
They can do whatever they please because they have no accountability and are allowed to own patents and have financial conflicts of interest but still determine public health policy. A true case of the fox guarding the hen-house.
