    Lisa: Good article but Eisenhower's face is not on every American dime. That's FDR's face.

    We don't need more jobs, people need to make more for working less. If we can spend billions on war and companies can manage to profit in the billions, then we can afford a tax rebate kick back to get things rolling and a pay increase to every employee in the hundreds of thousands. This country is literally run by people that believe they are smart, when in reality they are just stupid greedy control freaks. To prove their stupidity and the stupidity of the average American they no longer hide their bullshit, they display it for all to see.

    Happens all the time. You should see what goes on with oncologists who just ask questions during exams, never lay a hand on the patient and then charge for a Level 5 exam.

    Here's something interesting copied from a site called something like "Coding Pearls " (of Wisdom-haha) that tells doctors they GET PAID FOR WHAT THEY DOCUMENT AND NOT WHAT THEY DO! This is called the "Level V Caveat):
    (Top)
    "Remember, you don't get reimbursed for what you do, you get paid for what you document! A frequent deficiency area for down coding a Level 5 to 4 is the ROS. Level 4 requires 2 - 9 systems with Level 5 requiring 10+. Listing of pertinent positives and/or negatives with the statement 'all other ROS negative' meets Level 5 requirements."
