Catch 22 Healthcare

A new Nebraska hospital sued the Department of Health and Human Services over the accreditation process for Medicare.

Forty physicians unhappy with the local hospital made their own. However, the ACA delayed them for 18 months due to waiting for a study on the effects of physician-owned hospitals.

Next they were reviewed to see if they could get approved for Medicare. They were denied because during the review they had no Medicare inpatients and yet they can't take in Medicare inpatients without getting accredited.

Seriously. Who writes these freaking rules?
