They Claimed There Was No Money

Dear Source:
This is a very sad situation when the dedicated, hard working nurses and other staff are not compensated at a decent salary, because it has been claimed that there were no monies. We received phone calls at anytime of the day from collection agencies claiming we owe the hospital, but when you receive your statement of benefits paid to the hospital by your insurance company you question the why such a large amount of monies paid to the hospital now we know why – overbilling to insurance companies to satisfy greedy, self serving persons. They need to dismantle the board and hold everyone accountable for that foolishness and if anything was done illegal they should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
