Obamacare/Trumpcare Horror Stories

kinda relevant to the topic here:

Boston -- A former pharmaceutical executive accused of joining in a scheme to bribe doctors into prescribing a powerful painkiller once gave a lap dance to a doctor the company was pressuring to get his patients on the drug, her onetime colleague said Tuesday.

Jurors heard the testimony on the second day of the federal trial in Boston against Insys Therapeutics founder John Kapoor and four other former executives. They include Sunrise Lee, whom prosecutors have described as a former exotic dancer who was hired to be a regional sales manager even though she had no experience in the pharmaceutical world.

The executives are charged with conspiring to pay doctors kickbacks in the form of fees for sham speaking events that were billed as opportunities for other physicians to learn about the drug, a highly addictive fentanyl spray. In reality, prosecutors say, the events were mainly social gatherings for doctors and their friends to enjoy a fancy meal.

The problem is the poor job they've done creating systems for the delivery of care.

Ummm yeah, when there's no incentive, shit lags. Look at every tech and ops platform the government uses to provide "services" in this country.

The government saying they are willing to pay for increased access to health care is not going to dramatically increase the number of doctors. Doctors already make a shit ton of money because there just aren't that many of them. The current trend is already to reduce the reliance on doctors and move care onto nurses, which is a recipe for considerably worse care.
