Criminal Health Care: Greenwich Hospital

Greenwich Hospital To Pay Fine For Overcharging Medicare

From "Cure Your Cancer" by Bill Henderson:

Our government's Medicare system encourages the fraud and abuse that is rampant among oncologists. For example, the chemotherapy drug Etoposide is sold wholesale to oncologists for $7.50 for a 100mg dose. The allowable Medicare reimbursement, however, is $129.34 per dose. The consumer (you and I) pay a co-payment of $25.87 - almost three and a half times the doctor's cost! Medicare pays the rest from our tax dollars. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), the average oncologist makes $253,000 a year. Of this, 75% is profit on chemotherapy drugs administered in his or her office. All of these drugs, like Tamoxifen and Etoposide, treat the symptoms of cancer, not its causes. A recent survey of the 64 oncologists working at the McGill Cancer Therapy Center in Montreal, Canada found that 58 of them (91%) said they would not take chemo- therapy or allow their family members to take it for cancer treatment. Why? Too toxic and not effective.

Many cancers are now curable by conventional medicine if detected early. In the early stages, the best oncologists are those who combine conventional and complementary approaches.

For those whose cancers were not detected early, whose cancers have advanced despite conventional treatment, who have been given up on by conventional doctors, or who are truly brave souls from the moment of diagnosis, here are some good sites to visit:
