Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.




Comments:
I have a checkup with a KDH doc scheduled this week. I just got a recorded reminder over the phone. It said to take this, this and that along with payment. I've never been told to take a payment before. I always waited until the insurance went through.

Reality, you have no idea what you're talking about. County employees don't want the taxpayer to pay more. They're angry because the County changed to an health insurance provider that doesn't work with the county hospital. Thus (needlessly) creating a huge hassle for them.

County Employees are getting a taste of real life. They earn more than most regular people in this county. Get lots of science and vacation days. And now thy have to look at paying for some of their insurance. The rest of us have to pay no less than half and sometimes more. Not many at all get coverage for family especially subsidized or free coverage. So as far as I’m concerned if they want Cadillac coverage they need to pay their fair share. This expecting me John Doe taxpayer to foot the bill for them and their family is just greedy .

I say too bad tootsie pop.

Not much of a chance KDH not honoring Grote as Bethany Circle member Leslie Grote is on the board of directors of KDH.

kdh can transport to other hospitals, they transfer patients after being brought to KDH ER and KDH doesn't have the care they need but you still pay the bill. If the ride doesn't kill you the bill will.

Rumor has it the city will be hiring JCIDC Director as a way to funnel money to them since industry won’t cough up what they should. Supposedly Crook is so busy embezzling and taking bribes that he needs someone to take over some of his duties. :!cool:

Not sure where you are getting your information but Hanover College now has United Healthcare insurance and when they were here explaining it to us there were no issues with KDH accepting that insurance. So unless something has changed in the past month KDH does accept Hanover College insurance.

If employees of the County and Hanover College cannot go to Kdh. If this trend continues how can KDH keep operating? Yeh, they have a huge rainy day fund right now. If State employees happen to be next or Grote employees. They won't be able to keep the doors open.

This is going to get interesting.

kdh can transport to other hospitals, they transfer patients out several times a day. but the fact that they're a hospital owned service vs. a county run or third party service like rural metro requires a "medical assessment" under EMTALA (since EMTALA was written for hospitals it specifies by a nurse iirc) and an accepting physician at the receiving hospital, which doesn't include emergency physicians. otherwise it could be considered "patient dumping"like what happened in big cities in decades past where low income patients got dumped on county hospitals no matter where they were picked up. it's another case where lawmakers tried to shove a square peg in a round hole and messed it up for everybody. in a life threatening emergency they may divert to the closest facility (scott memorial's closer than kdh if you're in deputy, etc. i've been out of the field for several years now, but that was how it was explained 20 years ago.

Maybe we can offer IU Health or another hospital to set up shop in Madison. Plenty of opportunity to provide care. They could even build at that place with the billboard marked "shovel ready"
