“Prepare to Die”, said Inigo Montoya to the six fingered man.
Reimbursement, prepare to die.
Doctors get reimbursed? Interesting….
Do Lawyers get reimbursed? Do accountants get reimbursed? When you send your check to pay for your Aetna premiums, are you reimbursing them?
The last time I checked, the act of being reimbursed implies that a person gave money and awaiting for someone to give them the money back.
Let’s take a quick look at Webster’s Dictionary.
verb [ with obj. ]
repay (a person who has spent or lost money): the investors should be reimbursed for their losses.
• repay (a sum of money that has been spent or lost): they spend thousands of dollars that are not reimbursed by insurance.
How did it come to pass that doctors don’t get paid, but reimbursed?
