Review for Intermountain Health Care Inc, Salt Lake Cty, UT, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

Must see documentary snippett filmed at Harvard Law School about one of the most egregious charitable health care providers, Intermountain Health Care in Utah. http://www.sybervision.com/sadbully/sadprivate/ewarren.htm This tax-exempt business is the leading cause of Utah's #1 ranking of personal bankruptcies. It is a predatory wolf masquerading as an angel of mercy. It overcharges the uninsured by as much as 400% of what they charge insured, aggressively pursues collections, gets liens and wage garnishments and when they drive a family into bankruptcy or a family can't pay, they write off the uncollectible inflated debt as charity care. What a scam. It uses its war chest of hundreds of millions of dollars to buy off the local media with millions of advertising (television, radio, newspaper, billboard), stack its board with executives of major media and legislators, buys off leading politicians with donations and junkets, and invests in major local law firms to make sure these firms cannot represent plaintiffs who sue for malpractice. It's executives receive 7 figure salaries and 8 figure retirements. It's not a charitable hospital but a corrupt tax-exempt scam.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the study of Utah economics and antitrust law.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The day-to-day employees and volunteers are wonderful people who are often abused by management.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very gracious and kind.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Not to worry--it has hundreds of millions stashed away.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2009
