Physician Hospitals of America Denounces 'Farm Bill' Plan to Sell Out Seniors and Physicians to Pay for Agribusiness Subsidies
Date:4/17/2008

WASHINGTON, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Physician Hospitals of America (PHA) today strongly denounced efforts by opponents of physician owned hospitals to sneak provisions into the farm bill in their continuing effort to close all hospitals that have physician owners.

This is the latest effort by opponents of hospitals that are controlled and owned by physicians instead of bureaucrats and non-physician corporations and has already drawn strong criticism from groups such as the American Medical Association.

Sandvig added that physicians have taken the lead on health care and hospital reform because their patients are not being well served by a system "designed by politicians and controlled by bureaucrats."

Senators working on the farm bill who are also opposed to physician owned hospitals want to use "savings" identified by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to offset the costs of new farm programs.

PHA Executive Director Molly Sandvig said, "We dispute the CBO conclusions. These so-called savings are being used as an excuse to attack physicians. But even if the CBO estimate was accurate, using federal money dedicated to providing healthcare services for Medicare beneficiaries to support farm programs is outrageous. Americans work hard to pay into Medicare to support their hospital services. Those tax dollars should not wind up in the farm program."

PHA also urged members of Congress to be wary of information being distributed by the various industry groups for whom the effort to close hospitals owned by physicians has been undertaken.
