When answering questions about health-care costs in the Facebook townhall last week, the President explained that hospitals profit by screwing up (h/t Virginia M):
It’s also, though, how we reimburse doctors and how we
reimburse hospitals. So right now, what happens is, when you’ve taken
those two tests, if you’re old enough to qualify for Medicare, well,
each doctor sends their bill to Medicare and Medicare pays both bills.
And let’s say that you end up getting an operation. They’ll send the
bill for that, and Medicare pays that. Let’s say they didn’t do a very
good job, or you got sick in the hospital, and you are readmitted and
you have to be treated again and they have to do the operation all over
again. Medicare then gets billed for the second operation.
