The Headline and Sub-heading Got it All Wrong

The headline on the Healthcare Finance News daily bulletin that The Curmudgeon receives read

What hospitals, insurers should take away from Tom Price’s resignation

Price, you will recall, is the former Secretary of Health and Human Services who resigned after it was reported that he took more than a million dollars worth of flights on private planes instead of flying commercial, like the rest of us mere mortals.

And the sub-heading, intended to provide the answer, declared

Lack of strategic healthcare policy direction was central to Trump essentially firing Price, health policy expert says.

The Curmudgeon, alas, has another theory.

So what should hospitals and insurers really take away from Tom Price’s resignation?

DON’T STEAL A MILLION DOLLARS FROM THE GOVERNMENT!
