Urge your legislators: Let doctors be doctors, let nurses be nurses, restore and protect patients rights

Our Stand


  • In 2021, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) published an article on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) payment directives, detailing how CMS add-ons and other incentives in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act (PPPHCEA) created incentives, turning hospitals into cash-machines if they followed the money. Hospitals complied, despite disastrous patient outcomes. According to the article, compliant hospitals earned incentives from CMS for:
    • “A “free” required PCR test in the Emergency Room or upon admission for every patient, with government-paid fee to hospital.
    • Added bonus payment for each positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
    • Another bonus for a COVID-19 admission to the hospital.
    • A 20 percent “boost” bonus payment from Medicare on the entire hospital bill for use of remdesivir instead of medicines such as Ivermectin.
    • Another and larger bonus payment to the hospital if a COVID-19 patient is mechanically ventilated.
    • More money to the hospital if cause of death is listed as COVID-19, even if patient did not die directly of COVID-19.
    • A COVID-19 diagnosis also provides extra payments to coroners.”
  • These incentives added up to hundreds of thousands of dollars per patient for protocols that at times lead to injury and death. About 75% of patients put on Gilead’s Remdesivir (Veklury) “suffer an adverse effect, and the drug often had to be stopped after five to ten days because of these effects, such as kidney and liver damage, and death.” The inappropriate use of ventilators led to patient fatality rates of 45 to 85%.
  • “Then there are deaths from restrictions on effective treatments for hospitalized patients. [Attorney] Renz and a team of data analysts have estimated that more than 800,000 deaths in America’s hospitals, in COVID-19 and other patients, have been caused by approaches restricting fluids, nutrition, antibiotics, effective antivirals, anti-inflammatories, and therapeutic doses of anti-coagulants.”
  • Additionally, there were all those denied a patient advocate and a loved one by their bedside. All of the inhumane practices, including denial of established patients rights, were condoned, even sanctioned, by instructions from the federal government.
  • An in-depth White Paper with links to NIH and other documents will soon be available. To receive a copy of Follow the Money: Blood Money in US Healthcare – Financial Incentives to Enforce NIH Covid Protocols in Hospitals, send an email to [email protected] with “White Paper” in the subject line.
  • Lives are at stake. We need elected officials to take steps to end all medical incentives and let the true practice of medicine be restored. Please write your legislators and urge them to let doctors be doctors, let nurses be nurses, and restore and protect patients rights. This ongoing disaster must stop, and it must never happen again.
