Project Veritas Exposé: Covid Numbers Were Inflated, Likely for Financial Incentives
Project Veritas has exposed corruption in the US medical establishment once again: “COVID Cases Inflated for Profit: ‘The Guy Went in for Multiple Gunshot Wounds and he was Coded as COVID’.”
This comes soon after another Project Veritas exposé: “New York Nurse Whistleblower: Recordings Show Possible Botched Administration of COVID-19 Vaccine on Children: ‘Some People Got The Wrong One.’” And not only was there a shocking amount of shoddiness giving the vaccine to kids, “Project Veritas reached out to Pfizer, multiple doctors, and scientists. None were able to state with certainty what the adverse effects are on children getting the wrong mixture, or adults getting overdosed with the COVID-19 vaccine.” And now there’s the exposé on inflated Covid cases.
“[Baton Rouge, La. – Feb. 2, 2022] A source who works for United Healthcare of Louisiana’s Inpatient Utilization Management Department is blowing the whistle on COVID-19 cases possibly being inflated for financial incentive. The brazen instance of such potential abuse was a patient who had multiple gunshot wounds with his primary diagnosis listed as COVID-19. [emphasis added]”
AMERICANS CANNOT TRUST THE MEDICAL SYSTEM OR MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS. Obviously there are stellar exceptions to this rule—and perhaps your doctor or nurse is one of them. But the number of absolute disasters (many of them due to obvious incompetence) I or a friend of mine has experienced over the years from the medical profession makes me, sadly, hardly surprised to read stories like this. My experience, and the experience of many I know, is that many medical professionals simply want to prescribe medicine and move on with their lives—there’s no sense of personal, dedicated, zealous care for individuals anymore. The lesson? When your doctor recommends something, do your own research first. And for heaven’s sake, don’t get your kids the Covid jab. Whether it’s sadistic Dr. Fauci lying outright, or your local pediatrician only recommending what Big Pharma tells him to recommend, the medical profession in America is scandalous. And sadly, the last few compassionate, dedicated doctors and nurses are being run out of their profession for daring to challenge the status quo.
“Jeanne Stagg, a whistleblower who worked in Inpatient Utilization Management, approached Project Veritas after seeing cases coded as COVID-19 that she says should not have COVID-19 listed as the “primary diagnosis.”
Stagg: ‘I’ve tried to raise awareness to my leadership and even with the Fraud, Waste, and Abuse Department, and it just kind of fell on deaf ears.’
The Chief Medical Officer for United Healthcare of Louisiana (Medicaid) opined in a recorded phone conversation that the Medicaid rate for reimbursement of COVID-19 patients, which is faster and significantly higher, could be the motivation for the improper ‘primary diagnosis’ codes.
‘Oh, yes. Yeah. I would think that there’s some motivation that it’s driving higher rates of reimbursement or quicker reimbursement, or something, because otherwise there’s no reason to put, you know, something like that as a leading diagnosis in an asymptom-- basically asymptomatic patients,’ said Dr. Morial, Chief Medical Officer for United Healthcare of Louisiana.
The Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has suspended utilization review which is the process of determining whether health care is medically necessary for a patient or an insured individual. The whistleblower says this could be a major contributing factor to spikes in COVID numbers, which then influence public health decisions.”
There have been multiple instances when media or government entities have admitted that Covid numbers were grossly inflated. Considering that hospitals were given extra money for every Covid-19 patient starting back in 2020, it should not be shocking to find that financial incentives were behind the Covid number inflation.
The nurse, Jeanne Stagg, said the following about a correlation she noticed with inflated numbers:
“[Louisiana Department of Health], they had suspended utilization review. So, they’re basically telling the insurance companies that they cannot do medical necessity review, we can’t deny anything. When that happens, you can see on that chart the spikes in [Covid] numbers. It kind of correlates.”
No way! When no one is checking to see how accurate a diagnosis is, Covid number inflation starts to happen? Who would have thought?
“United Healthcare of Louisiana is the states’ Medicaid arm, and as the whistleblower Jeanne Stagg points out in a conversation with the Chief Medical Officer of United Healthcare of Louisiana, Dr. Julie Morial, there are several financial incentives for hospitals to prefer to code patients as COVID-19 hospitalizations.
‘Well maybe that’s… maybe that’s driving some of the motivation,’ said Dr. Morial before stating that the Medicaid rate for reimbursement of COVID-19 patients is both higher and faster.
Project Veritas also published footage of a leadership call within United Healthcare of Louisiana wherein the whistleblower’s attempt to discuss the improper primary diagnoses she is seeing was dismissed.
A major element of this story is the fact that recent actions by public officials have allowed the problem to persist, and the whistleblower believes erroneous codes could be the cause of COVID-19 spikes which influence major public health decisions.
A health plan advisory, which announced that all utilization management for all medical hospitalizations [including but not limited to initial service authorization and concurrent reviews], must be suspended was the action taken -- which is in question.
‘Now, this is not specific to COVID-19. This is every single hospital admission. We’re not allowed to do medical necessity review. So, it gives the hospitals free reign to admit anything they want. Code it however they want,’ says the whistleblower, Jeanne Stagg.
United Healthcare of Louisiana’s Dr. Morial was contacted for comment on this story and said, ‘When I see a patient, and if a patient is presenting other symptoms that aren't suggestive of a COVID infection, even though they may test positive for COVID, that’s not my primary diagnosis.’”
Apparently the US medical establishment is being paid to be dishonest.
