How many government institutions (besides schools) does Kaiser manipulate behind the scenes? NUHW Files Complaint Over Hiring of DMHC Attorney

DMHC Director (and former Kaiser counsel) Brent Barnhart

Kaiser has to make friends with school district officials in order to get favorable deals to insure school workers. It uses its expertise in mutual back-scratching at government agencies, too.

See full story HERE.

I've known for a long time that the Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC or DOMHC) was in cahoots with Kaiser. DMHC responded to a complaint I filed by saying that Kaiser fulfilled its duty by taking X-rays, and was not obligated to look at them!

DOMC's actions shouldn't come a surprise, since Brent Barnhart,the Director of DMHC, is a former senior counsel at Kaiser Foundation Health Plan.

Having one of Brent Barnhart's attorneys move to Kaiser will make everything work smoothly. Marcy Gallagher will have access to Director Barnhart, and knowledge of the inner workings of DMHC. Although I can hardly imagine that things could actually get easier for Kaiser, since DMHC has to disapprove of SOMETHING every once in a while, just to pretend it's regulatory agency, right?
