DOC: Hospitals getting paid more to label cause of death as ‘coronavirus’

I don't think you can find anything more disturbing than this story.

Senator Scott Jensen represents Minnesota. He’s also a doctor. He appeared on Fox News with Laura Ingram where he revealed a very disturbing piece of information.
Dr. Scott Jensen says the American Medical Association is now “encouraging” doctors to overcount coronavirus deaths across the country.
Jensen received a  7-page document that showed him how to fill out a death certificate as a “COVID-19 diagnosis” even when there isn’t a lab test confirming the diagnosis.
“Right now Medicare is determining that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you get $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 impact on what we do.”
This is absolutely bone-chilling.

He omits important information. If an individual is admitted to a hospital for covid-19 treatment it costs on average $13k and if they are covered by Medicare they will pay the bill.

This is not the information given here: Cost vary widely based on treatment.

My father always told me to read between the lines, and part of that is knowing what the source is. The source of the info is NPR, which is unfortunately a biased news source. Be that as it may the numbers given are from 2018, and not from 2020. Medicare will pay $4000 for pneumonia treatment today, but suddenly they will pay $13,000 for COVID-19 treatment, and if you put the person on the killing machine called a ventilator the hospital will get up to $39,000. This en courageous the hospital to call pneumonia COVID-19. This is a well planned attempt to not only bring President Trump down, but to unite ALL world governments in one technocratic enslavement.
Go to the NEJM, article entitled "COVID-19-Navigating the Unknown", by Fauci, Lane, Redfield. In that article it says that the virus is no worse than a bad case of the flu.
TB, which is highly infectious, and resists anti-biotic treatment, kills 1.5 million per year. Where is the uproar? Fungal infections kill 1.5 million children under 5 yet there is no uproar. Fungal infections are difficult to cure as the drug may kill you, but it is a choice of death over maybe the patient will live.

Lesley Stahl reveals she was in a Hospital for COVID for a few days, but is secretive about what treatment she received

I have a unique background as both a full time, live in caregiver for my Senior Mother for 7 years, and always being by my parents side for 20 years when they had to stay in a Hospital, ER, Urgent Care or Rehab facility. I made this video to caution everyone how COVID patients being put on ventilators might not be an ideal scenario and that the Big Pharma media may be complicit.
