Provides new insights into physician and hospital readiness, and recommends practical strategies for health system stakeholders”
What? Doctors saying they can cut the cost of their care by 18 percent without any impact on the quality of their care? What does that mean? Does it mean that they know that more and more people will be getting sick so they will have more and more patients? Using terms like “health system stakeholders.” Really? Sounds more like stock market or financial stakeholders.
“The federal government projects that national health spending will rise from $2.8 trillion to $4.8 trillion over the coming decade, accounting for nearly 20 percent of the U.S. economy. “ The government knows that more and more people will be getting sick and they are planning pilot programs to bundle chemotherapy costs? Are they planning on more and more cancer patients? Is that why, for the most part, the medical profession wants to ignore Morgellons because they are waiting for us to develop cancer and then they will treat us with chemotherapy?
And, what are they gearing up for? Home health care. Treating cancer with chemotherapy. Contracting for complex care (whatever that means). This article is all about making money. They are saying they can save money but this is a financial business plan to make money and is all about contracting for services, physician gain-sharing, partnerships and preparing to make more money by treating cancer patients with chemotherapy. I think this is about government run and contracted health services. I remember back in the 1980’s when all the older people were getting upset and all they were talking about at family gatherings on holidays was that the government had changed the laws on Medicare and that everyone who turned 65 had to go on Medicare, even if they had other health insurance, because if they didn’t, their health insurance would not pay the amount that Medicare would pay so they would be out that money from their own pockets. That forced everyone to sign up for Medicare at the age of 65. Why did the government want all the older people on Medicare? So they could control their health care. Simple really. This has been going on now for over 20 years.
“The paper discusses the practical experience and early results from a number of these payment reform initiatives, including:
• new data from UnitedHealthcare’s patient-centered medical home pilots showing a 2:1 return on investment;
• Optum’s experience with outcomes-based contracting with centers of excellence for complex care;
• UnitedHealthcare’s performance-based contracting initiative for doctors and hospitals;
• Optum’s ‘collaborative care’ physician gain-sharing and capitation models; and
• UnitedHealthcare and Optum’s Accountable Care Organization partnerships.“
What does this mean to us? We need to take control of our health by eating a healthy Diet with organic foods when possible and doing moderate exercise and de-toxing our bodies of parasites, fungus, bacteria, viruses, and heavy metals that are being dumped on us every day. We need to keep our homes as clean and germ/pest free as possible. We need to be aware of protocols that have worked for others who have overcome this Morgellons Syndrome and take heed of research and recommendations for combating this given by people like Clifford Carnicom and Dr. Gwen Scott, N.D. Take ginger root daily and ginko biloba to thin the blood naturally (unless you are on a prescription blood thinner). Take Iosol Iodine to kill the candida. Use ionic copper water and ionic or Colloidal Silver water. Take pomegranate. Use essential oils. Drink filtered or distilled water. Eat lots of garlic. Eat food grade diatomaceous earth. Maintain healthy potassium levels to cut down on muscle aches and pains. Take lots of Vitamin C and eat citrus fruits. Eat yogurt. Take beta glutans and acidophilus probiotics for immune and digestive health. Eat plenty of natural fiber and raw vegetables and keep yourself regular. We need to keep informed by reading information posted about Morgellons and parasites and fungus. I believe natural remedies will work best but if you can find a doctor who will work with you and that you can trust, by all means, see that doctor. But, I don’t think taking prescription Antibiotics for Morgellons is a good idea. Just my opinion. Also, research and learn about natural treatments for cancer such as sheep sorrel, cesium chloride, zappers, and many more. We need to keep praying that God will intervene on our behalf. We can’t do this alone, we need God’s help to win this fight against Morgellons Syndrome. If God is for us who can be against us?
