Political Medical Prisoners in the Realm of COVID-19 as Described by Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vlie
Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet is a former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She says Americans hospitalized with COVID-19 “are actually being treated worse than convicts in American jails.” The rationale for the treatment is mostly financial, she says, and has to do with how hospitals are reimbursed by the government and insurers.
High reimbursement rates, she claims, encourage hospitals to treat dying patients with high-risk, low-reward treatments like ventilators and Remdesivir. “There is another incentive payment if the patient dies in the hospital.”. The former AAPS director further claimed that hospitals have been rewarded for diagnosing patients with COVID (which explains the pandemic’s very high ‘infection’ rate) and then placing those patients on a ventilator with a $39,000 incentive.
Vliet said in a video interview that the rationale for the therapy is mostly financial and that it has to do with how hospitals are reimbursed by the government and insurers for COVID-19 treatment.
The interview was set up by Dr. Peter R. Breggin, MD.
Murdering COVID Patients in the Name of Treatment
[Vliet] has now been presented with the awful and horrific reality of COVID patients dying due to negligence and improper care in hospitals across the United States and worldwide, having formed the Truth for Health Foundation with Peter McCullough, MD MPH as Chief Medical Advisor.
Many of these treatment centers appear to be so keen on murdering their patients that they refuse to comply with court orders to treat them with antiviral medications such as prednisone, as well as more specialized drugs like hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin. Doctors and hospitals have degenerated into unethical, dishonest medical practices, fueled by huge reimbursement payouts for caring dying COVID patients and by utilizing potentially lethal treatments like ventilators and remdesivir.
“Today, Covid-19 patients in American hospitals are being treated worse than convicts in American jails,” Vliet adds, adding that “they are being held captive and secluded from loved ones…for the sake of money.”
High reimbursement rates, she claims, encourage hospitals to treat dying COVID-19 patients with high-risk, low-reward medications like ventilators and remdesivir. As a result, money has co-opted hospitals and physicians, and they are increasingly choosing unethical medical procedures above doing what is best for these patients.
“The government pays them [hospitals] to run a PCR test on every patient who enters in the door… Then they are charged an additional fee for a COVID hospital admission. “If the hospital just utilizes remdesivir to treat the patient, they get a 20% bonus on the overall hospital fee,” Vliet explained.
“And then, if the patient is placed on a ventilator, which is a result of some of the toxicity of remdesivir as well as the fluid and nutrient restrictions that they are also doing, and once the patient is placed on a ventilator, there is another incentive bonus for the hospitals.” “There is another incentive payment if the patient dies in the hospital,” she continued.
The former AAPS director further claimed that hospitals have been rewarded for diagnosing patients with COVID (which explains the pandemic’s very high ‘infection’ rate) and then placing those patients on a ventilator with a $39,000 incentive. Worse, she claimed that if the patient on the vent died of ‘COVID,’ hospitals were paid an even higher stipend. This meant there was a financial incentive to ‘discover’ COVID patients, place them on vents, and watch them die.
Vliet detailed the heinous concept in an op-ed published on the AAPS website in November under the title “Biden’s Bounty on Your Life: Hospitals’ Incentive Payments for COVID-19.”
“Hospital executives in Arizona reported meeting many times a week to decrease standards of care, with coordinated limitations on visitation privileges, as revealed in audio recordings. “The majority of COVID-19 patients’ relatives are kept in the dark about what is truly happening to their loved ones,” she added.
“The CARES Act, which provides hospitals with bonus incentive payments for all things related to COVID-19 (testing, diagnosing, admitting to hospital, use of remdesivir and ventilators, reporting COVID-19 deaths, and vaccinations) and (2) waivers of customary and long-standing patient rights by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) enable this tragic and avoidable loss of hundreds of thousands of lives,” she added.
