Doctors Who Implement ‘Anti-Racism Plan’ Given Bonuses by Biden Administration

The monetary incentive program is part of new rules issued by the Department of Health and Human Services

The Department of Health and Human Services announced new rules for Medicare doctors which include monetary compensation for those who adopt anti-racism plans.

Doctors who conduct “a clinic-wide review” and evaluate their practice’s “commitment to anti-racism” will be able to increase their reimbursement rates.

The department wants doctors to define race as “a political and social construct, not a physiological one.” 

“It is important to acknowledge systemic racism as a root cause for differences in health outcomes between socially-defined racial groups,” the department said its new rules.

The department says the change in policy is in line with President Joe Biden’s “Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government’ which he issued hours after his inauguration.

In the order, Biden said his administration would “pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.”

“Because advancing equity requires a systematic approach to embedding fairness in decision-making processes, executive departments and agencies (agencies) must recognize and work to redress inequities in their policies and programs that serve as barriers to equal opportunity,” the statement continues. “By advancing equity across the Federal Government, we can create opportunities for the improvement of communities that have been historically underserved, which benefits everyone.”

The HHS changes will go into effect on Jan. 1.

“The new rules update Medicare’s Merit-Based Incentive Payment System, a scoring rubric that determines eligible doctors’ reimbursement rates. Congress set up that system in 2015 to reward clinicians for high-quality, cost-effective medical care—and to penalize them for providing unnecessary, costly services,” reports The Washington Free Beacon.

Doctors are also rewarded for implementing what the HHS calls “Trauma-Informed Care Approach” to their clinics. The objective of this approach is to “avoid re-traumatizing or triggering past trauma.” The department cited “multi-generational trauma, whereby experiences that traumatized earlier generations, such as the genocide of Native American tribes, are passed down” as an example.

News of the change was denounced on Twitter as an attempt to mix medicine with Critical Race Theory.

During 2020, approximately 18.4% of Americans were covered by Medicare. Medicare spending last year reached approximately $925,8 billion. In 1970, the program’s spending was $7.5 billion.

    I will tell you a joke Renfield told me:
    Winter season approaches on a large cornfield. There is nothing left but withered, brown, bowed cornstalks and husk.Perched atop, in the middle of the cornfield, is a rowboat inhabited by a Woke Liberal Cult Member (WLCM) that is rowing furiously.
    A local crowd of various farmers and townspeople assemble at the edge of the cornfield. They shield their eyes from the sun with their hands, but cannot make out WHO is in the rowboat -they can only see them rowing furiously.They, with a quizzical look- shake their heads and point and some laugh wondering who is out in the middle of a dead cornfield in winter rowing?
    Well, the WLCM has had ENOUGH, stops rowing and stands up and hollers at the crowd: “YOU! YOU people are racist, misogynistic,homophobic,capitalist! AND SO HELP ME GOD…IF I COULD SWIM…I would come over there and BEAT YOUR ASS!
    ( I hope I told it right. Renfield is a ghostly kinda dude that stops by the house sometimes. He claims he lives at a place called Seward Sanitarium.He has a thing about bugs and laughs a lot,but otherwise seems harmless. And ya know, sometimes he has …AMAZING CLARITY.)

    Great article! Not surprised. This admin is currently trying to bring our country to ruination. Just another divisive contention point. And Tim says racism will never go away. Doesn’t he know that once the doctors stop treating white people, then all the bad racism goes away?! Sheesh Tim, get your head outta the clouds!

    So it says this plan would “pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized, and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality.” I’m white and I have been adversely affected by persistent poverty.

    When are they going to understand that it’s a class thing, not a race thing. I guarantee you that poor white people have it worse in this country than poor black people. Everyone sees your white skin and assumes you’re just bad at life if you’re not successful, whereas if you’re black (or any other minority) they just assume you’ve been oppressed.

    Pretty sure the disproportionately high prevalence of liquor/tobaccos shops in low income areas combined with poor diet due to cost of good food is more to blame for health gaps between races given the income gap. How is this supposed to change anything?

    The Bumbles Administration ideal for a doctor’s “Anti-Racism Plan” is to refuse service to whites.

    Bumbles is fucking evil

    It’s not clear to me from this article what an “anti-racism plan” would even entail. Quotas for different races? And how is race suddenly considered social and not physiological? If you have generational trauma, then that is epigenetically expressed in your physiology. I feel like they’re just playing these semantic, virtue-signaling word games as a distraction for some more nefarious underlying goal.
