Principles for allocation of scarce medical interventions

written by –  Ezekiel J Emanuel, Department of Bioethics, The Clinical Center, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD 20892-1156, USA

Dr Emanuel who was one of the primary influences on the Obama Care law discusses the following:

“Allocation of very scarce medical interventions such as organs and vaccines is a persistent ethical challenge. We evaluate eight simple allocation principles that can be classified into four categories: treating people equally, favouring the worst-off, maximising total benefits, and promoting and rewarding social usefulness. No single principle is sufficient to incorporate all morally relevant considerations and therefore individual principles must be combined into multiprinciple allocation systems. We evaluate three systems: the United Network for Organ Sharing points systems, quality-adjusted life-years, and disability-adjusted life-years. We recommend an alternative system—the complete lives system—which prioritizes younger people who have not yet lived a complete life, and also incorporates prognosis, save the most lives, lottery, and instrumental value principles.” https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(09)60137-9/fulltext

The Complete Lives System is by design a plan to ration health care to the participates of Obama Care and Single Payer based upon adjusted life-years, disability-adjusted life-years.  In other words it is designed to treat the younger people over the needs of the elderly and disabled first.

Please read the attached PDF and understand the government officials and politicians who propose these plans and ideas WILL NEVER BE A PART OF THE PLAN!  The politicians and government officials have their own private health plans that are the BEST available – not YOU!

Don’t be fooled by the political debate the Politicians always exempt themselves from the plans they believe are the best of you.  GIVE US THE SAME PLAN all the Senators, House of Representatives get or mandate they must drop their plans and participate in the one they are pawning off on us!
