Wow, the trolls are out in force today. Apparently they didn't read the
entire story, because if they did, they would have seen "Intermountain
discovered it might be out of compliance with the Stark law and regulations
regarding physician relationships through its regular review process and
voluntarily disclosed it to the U.S. Attorney for Utah in 2009..."Apparently Intermountain found the problem and was working to fix it. It
wasn't even a systemic problem, just a problem at some clinics.
But the free market without regulation is best.
Can any large-scale private or public Utah institution operate without the
stench of corruption? From the highway patrol to the attorney general's
office; from the Utah Transit Authority to Utah's largest healthe care
provider, nothing seems to work with greed and impropriety attached to it.
