Les Merritt accomplishes something!

An audit released Thursday found the pharmacy director at UNC Hospitals, which also provides service to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, received travel and phone reimbursements from the hospital and the school for the same expenses.

Maybe he's feeling the pressure to do something right or useful!

You know that mess goes on all the time

So, Merritt got tipped off. Wonder if the person informed the hospital/university first to see if they would do anything about it.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

Yeah, and I'm not surprised

I know the McAllisters from my time at UNCSOP.

Apparently, UNC-hospital pharmacy staff hasn't heard about it, and they found out through WRAL. Strikes me as being hush-hush.

wonder how far back they'll look

I just dealt with UNC Hospital's Main Pharmacy.

They went out of their way to help me and my family right before closing, including doing some investigation for us. The pharmacist told me that they lost a million dollars a year because they mostly treat indigent patients (we were discussing BCBS and their lousy PPO that the legislature is going to make the only choice for state employees.

Sounds right to me.

And it's a stunning example of how we're already paying more than we would under a single payer system.

We've got a BCBS PPO through my husband's job, and it's not that bad. It's covered most of the things I've wanted on the medical/drug side. The dental coverage is sorely lacking. But going by what my coworkers say, it's far better and easier to deal with than the plan Durham County provides. (I'm getting their dental, though, because it's better.)

Investigation is just part of the job, mate. ;)

The PPO reimburses at a rate lower than Medicaid.

Providers all over our area are dropping it like a hot potato. You can be sure that it is BCBS who wants the indemnity plan dropped so that providers will be FORCED to accept this insurance with its low reimbursement. That means MORE MONEY for BCBS.

Oy.

In today's health care system, it's really insurance that drives costs up. But you know that.
