Dear Patients,
Starting on January 1, 1999, HCFA's new E&M guidelines will be imposed on practicing physicians. The new E&M guidelines request the physicians to practice medicine according to federal, descriptive, required, outlined, specific details. New federal requested guidelines will authorize "armed" auditing agents to enter doctors' offices, unannounced, to inspect and/or audit private patient charts (your chart) without your previous informed consent.

...After many hours, days, weeks, and months of reflection, deliberation, prayer, and consultation, the Lord has provided a solution:

° I will continue to see my patients who are insured under Medicare.

° I will not submit patients' bills to the Medicare intermediaries.

° I choose to honor freedom and reject unconstitutional constraints and tyrannical edicts so long as this country is still (partially) free.

° I will not submit any bill directly to my patients who are on Medicare.

° Patients who are on Medicare and who have received my medical services for free are encouraged, urged, and exhorted to make a free will offering to any of these three 501(c)(3) tax-exempt educational foundations: a. The Americanism Foundation; b. The Freedom in Medicine Patient-Physician Coalition Educational Foundation; c. The Born Again American Foundation, all located in Norwalk, OH 44857.

Gratefully and Faithfully your doctor,
Nino M. Camardese, MD

Judicial activism...the capricious rule of man rather than the just rule of law.

The largest single problem facing American medicine today is the actions of government...

The lessons of history sagaciously reveal wherever governments have sought to control medical care and medical practice...the results have been as perverse as they have been disastrous.

Children are the centerpiece of the family, the treasure (and renewal) of countless civilizations, but they should not be used flagrantly to advance political agendas...

Prejudice against gun ownership by ordinary citizens is pervasive in the public health community, even when they profess objectivity and integrity in their scientific research.

The infusion of tax free money into the MSA of the working poor give this population tax equity with wealthier persons...

It was when Congress started dabbling in constitutionally forbidden activities that deficit spending produced a national debt!

Does the AMA have a secret pact with HCFA?

The lure of socialism is that it tells the people there is nothing they cannot have and that all social evils will be redressed by the state.
