“Why is it in health care we expect to have the same?” he told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s an entitlement mentality. Why aren’t the same people asking why everybody shouldn’t be eating the same foods, or have the same clothes or same homes? Those are as essential services as health care.”A doctor has made a fortune running a company that buys hospitals and cancels their private insurance contracts so they can collect higher reimbursements, but some health professionals are decrying that business model…Dr. Prem Reddy, 58, said there is nothing wrong with having patients receive only the amount of care they can afford.
Prime Healthcare’s business plan allows hospitals to forgo some much-needed but less lucrative services, such as chemotherapy treatments, mental health care and birthing centers.
Reddy also discourages doctors from giving patients treatment they can’t afford, such as pacemakers and knee replacements.
He said his company’s revenue is more than $500 million a year and that he is worth more than $300 million. Prime Healthcare now has more than 1,250 beds under its control.
He is no doctor, he is a sociopathic businessman, strip him of his licence and prosecute the murdering capitalist fuck.
