Shocking discoveries of government incentive payments to hospitals across America explain two alarming facts COVID patients and their families experience as patients suddenly find themselves trapped in what has become a medical prison, with patients’ rights violated on all fronts.
On Monday, Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet joined the Stew Peters Show to detail corruption on par with war crimes.
According to Dr. Vilet, prisoners in America’s jails now have more visitation rights than COVID patients in hospitals. One family member, a professional psychologist with a career focus on treating victims of trauma, said that in many hospitals COVID patients are treated “little better than animals.”
Revealing recordings of Mayo Clinic-Scottsdale and Banner Health System hospital executives discussing coordinated efforts to restrict fluids and nutrition for hospitalized COVID patients and to suppress visitation rights were presented at the Press Conference by Truth for Health Foundation, an Arizona public charity.
Once admitted to a hospital with a COVID diagnosis, Remdesivir is the only drug allowed for treatment, in spite of known toxicity to kidneys and liver and a death rate over 50% in the earlier trials of this drug for Ebola. Patients are denied safer and more effective antiviral medicines such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
The death rate for hospitalized COVID patients has skyrocketed. Attorney Thomas Renz announced at a Truth for Health Foundation Press Conference that CMS data from Texas hospitals showed 84.9% percent of all patients died once they had been on a mechanical ventilator for more than 96 hours.
A National Library of Medicine January 2021 report of 69 studies involving more than 57,000 patients concluded that fatality rates were 45 percent in COVID-19 patients receiving invasive mechanical ventilation, increasing to 84 percent in older patients.
The COVID protocol that hospital physicians must follow, in lockstep across the U.S., appears to be the implementation of the 2009-2010 “Complete Lives System” developed by Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel for rationing medical care for people older than 50.
Dr. “Zeke” Emanuel, who was the Senior White House Health Policy Advisor to President Obama and has been advising President Joe Biden about COVID-19, stated in his classic 2009 Lancet paper: “When implemented, the complete lives system produces a priority curve on which individuals aged between roughly 15 and 40 years get the most substantial chance, whereas the youngest and oldest people get chances that are attenuated.”
“Attenuated” means rationed, restricted, or denied medical care that commonly leads to premature death.
The combination that enables this tragic and avoidable loss of hundreds of thousands of lives includes The CARES Act, which provides hospitals with bonus incentive payments for all things related to COVID-19 (testing, diagnosing, admitting to hospital, use of Remdesivir and ventilators, reporting COVID-19 deaths, and vaccinations) and (2) waivers of customary and long-standing patient rights by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
In 2020, the Texas Hospital Association submitted requests for waivers to CMS. According to Texas attorney Jerri Ward, “CMS has granted ‘waivers’ of federal law regarding patient rights. Specifically, CMS purports to allow hospitals to violate the rights of patients or their surrogates with regard to medical record access, to have patient visitation, and to be free from seclusion.” She notes that “rights do not come from the hospital or CMS and cannot be waived, as that is the antithesis of a ‘right.’ The purported waivers are meant to isolate and gain total control over the patient and to deny patient and patient’s decision-maker the ability to exercise informed consent.”
Creating a “National Pandemic Emergency” provided justification for such sweeping actions that override individual physician medical decision-making and patients’ rights. The CARES Act provides incentives for hospitals to use treatments dictated solely by the federal government under the auspices of the NIH. These “bounties” must be paid back if not “earned” by making the COVID-19 diagnosis and following the COVID-19 protocol.
The hospital payments include:
- A “free” required PCR test in the Emergency Room or upon admission for every patient, with a fee to hospital by the federal government.
- Added bonus payment for each positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
- Another bonus for a COVID-19 admission to the hospital.
- A 20 percent “boost” bonus payment from Medicare on the entire hospital bill for the use of remdesivir instead of other medicines, such as Ivermectin.
- Another and larger bonus payment to the hospital if a COVID-19 patient is mechanically ventilated.
- More money to the hospital if the cause of death is listed as COVID-19, even if the patient did not die directly of COVID-19.
- A COVID-19 diagnosis also provides extra payments to coroners.
CMS implemented “value-based” payment programs that track data such as how many workers at a healthcare facility have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Now we see why many hospitals implemented COVID-19 vaccine mandates. They are paid more.
Outside the hospital, Physician MIPS quality metrics link doctors’ income to performance-based pay for treating patients with COVID-19 EUA drugs. Failure to report this information to CMS can cost the physician 4% of reimbursement.
Because of obfuscation with medical coding and legal jargon, we cannot be certain of the actual amount each hospital receives per COVID-19 patient. But Attorney Thomas Renz and CMS whistleblowers have calculated a total payment of at least $100,000 per patient.
What does this mean for your health and safety as a patient in the hospital?
KIN Senior Analyst Bill Wilson wrote in the November 2 Daily Jot, “A December 12, 2019 article in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that the use of remdesivir in treating patients during the 2018 West African Ebola outbreak had to be discontinued ‘because mortality exceeded 50%.’ Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control published studies indicate a range of 71-75% adverse events caused by Remdesivir (including liver and kidney damage), and many of the studies documented that Remdesivir treatment had to be discontinued after 5-10 days because of adverse events or even worse, death.”
Then there are deaths from restrictions on effective treatments for hospitalized patients. Renz and a team of data analysts have estimated that more than 800,000 deaths in America’s hospitals, in COVID-19 and other patients, have been caused by approaches restricting fluids, nutrition, antibiotics, effective antivirals, anti-inflammatories, and therapeutic doses of anticoagulants.
We now see government-dictated medical care at its worst in our history since the federal government mandated these ineffective and dangerous treatments for COVID-19, and then created financial incentives for hospitals and doctors to use only those “approved” (and paid for) approaches.
Our formerly trusted medical community of hospitals and hospital-employed medical staff have effectively become “bounty hunters” for your life. Patients need to now take unprecedented steps to avoid going into the hospital for COVID-19.
Patients need to take active steps to plan before getting sick to use early home-based treatment of COVID-19 that can help you save your life.

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
