You are sick. You are hospitalized. You are older. You recover to a point where further hospitalization is not deemed necessary and like most rational people you would rather be at home in familiar surroundings with family than in the hospital. You go home.
A few weeks later you have a recurrence or maybe another issue. You are readmitted. The hospital takes a financial hit because you don't fit the Obamacare model.
Hospitals Fined For Treating Sick People
Is that the most ridiculous concept you've ever encountered? What would be the alternative? Extend hospitalization at great cost and squandering resources which could be better applied? Keep them because you might have to readmit them.
Or, maybe deny healthcare because they've already used their quota of care for the month? Doesn't that sound a lot like the somewhat hysterically named "Death Panels"?
Seriously, the death panel concept was a euphemism for bureaucratic rationing of healthcare without regard to medical necessity. It was budget over medicine.
Now, apparently we can see the future and it isn't sunny.
