Thank Tenet for Saving Medicare Money!

  1. Medicare closes loopholes in fee formula

    Medicare's top official is expected to announce an overhaul in the way Medicare reimburses hospitals for high-cost patients. The move, spurred by disclosures that Tenet Healthcare Corp. received unusually large amounts of supplemental Medicare reimbursements for treating the sickest patients, would eliminate about $2 billion in payments this year to scores of hospitals around the country.
