Frankly I do not know for sure? But without giving too much information, he is high ranking and in the intelligence end of things ! Having been in the AF yourself, you might have a better idea than I ?
I just read a provision of Obamacare. This is crazy. If a patient on Medicare is re admitted to the hospital due to complications the hospital will be fined. Another example of government interfering with our private lives. I work in public safety and see people going to the hospital 4-5 times a month. I guess Obama is banking on these fines to help fund Obamacare and help fund his huge entitlement programs.
I see the reasoning behind these fines to help get better patient care but I think we have great doctors how it is. The doctors don't need the government in the business of patient care and what is good care or not. People react differently to different treatments and not everyone will recover the same.
I would guess "complications" refers to poor treatment like being given a staff infection due to poor hygene. In a case like that should the hospital make an extra profit? I suspect wrong doing will have to be shown before being fined.
