Stanford review finds 45% of 117 pediatric “Covid hospitalizations” were not hospitalized for Covid

By Meryl Nass, M.D. | May 24, 2021

Four things we know of probably helped drive up the number of hospitalizations coded as due to Covid-19.

One was the payment of considerably more funds by Medicare for a hospitalization coded with a Covid DRG than for a comparable illness.

Two was an extra federal payment to hospitals that met a certain threshold of Covid cases during a specified time period, as discussed by Scott Jensen, MD and recent member of the Minnesota legislature, who is now running for governor.

Three was a required Covid test for every admitted patient, which has some false positives and presumably also identifies asymptomatic cases.

Four was extra emergency payments to states that could show they had a preponderance of Covid patients.

Physicians at Stanford’s quaternary (super specialized and able to care for the very sickest patients) pediatric center examined 117 Covid-coded pediatric hospitalizations that occurred during a 9 month period from May 10, 2020 to February 10, 2021. They determined that 45% of these children were not admitted because of Covid.  Their paper is short and straightforward. Worth a quick look.

  1. Providing extra funds for “desired outcomes” seems to work really well the case of something called “Covid 19”.
    “Big Money” also has the same powerful influence in the United States Congress.

    IT’s the old ‘Golden Rule’….”He who has the gold, makes the rules”…….I wonder….Qui Bono……”Who Benefits”
