How would this be different from cities imposing eminent domain, so they can get more tax revenue?

I mean other than that this story gives moonbats like you a cheap excuse to feign outrage.

Tagg Romney Blocks Hospice From Being Built for personal reasonsThe video below is of a meeting with City officials on August 15, 2012 where Tagg Romney admitted that his main reason for blocking Hospice is because he, personally, wants to buy that same land and develop it so he can make lots of money.

Daily Kos: (VIDEO) Tagg Romney Blocks Hospice From Being Built for personal reasons

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

The REAL reason Tagg Romney blocked the hospice from being built was the possibility that "LilOlLady" would someday need to use it.

So you CON$ now support eminent domain since you support this and you say they are the same. There is no such thing as private ownership in the CON$ervoFascist Brotherhood, the state and the oligarchs are entitled to anything they want.
Thank you for your candor.

No one said they supported it they asked how it was different the question mark at the end of the sentence is a dead give away.

Private property gets in the way of increasing profits.

Medicare/Medicaid changed its policies for hospice care payments for 2016...

Hospice patients get too little care in last days of life, study says
Feb. 9, 2016 - The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services changed its policies for hospice care payments for 2016 in order to encourage more visits toward the end of life.
One in eight hospice patients do not see a doctor, nurse, or social worker during their last two days of life, researchers for the federal agency responsible for the end-of-life programs found in a recent study. The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services changed its policies for hospice care payments for 2016 in order to encourage more visits toward the end of life, when the agency says families are most overwhelmed and patients often experience significant changes in symptoms and pain. The change, effective Jan. 1, adds a "service intensity add-on payment" for up to four hours per day during the last seven days of life for a registered nurse or social worker, will address some of the problem, researchers said. Previously, Medicare paid a single rate per patient, regardless of how many times a medical professional visited them.

Hospice is a specialized type of care meant for the physical and emotional needs of people dying from incurable disease, and to help their families care for them and cope. Aside from rural locations affecting the availability of some services, the researchers at the University of Washington who conducted the study also noted a lower likelihood of visits for patients who are black, die on a Sunday, or are in a nursing home. "They can make changes to ensure that the dying patient is comfortable and to provide education to the family on how to care for the patient in the last days of life," Dr. Joan Teno, a professor of medicine at the University of Washington, told HealthDay of the importance for medical professionals to see patients in their last days of life.

The chances of hospice patients being visited by a medical professional in their last two days of life were even lower for black patients and people who died on a Sunday.​

For the study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, researchers analyzed medical records for the last two days of life of 661,557 Medicare beneficiaries who died in hospice between October 2013 and September 2014. The researchers found 12.3 percent of all patients in the study received no professional staff visits in their last two days of life, with rates ranging from 3.8 percent of patients in Wisconsin to 19.7 percent of patients in Alaska seeing no medical professionals before they died. Among 3,400 hospices, 8 percent didn't visit any patient during their last two days of life and less than 1 percent visited all patients in their final two days. Black patients were about one-third less likely than white patients to have visits in their last two days, and people dying in a nursing home were 1.74 times less likely to have visits than people dying at home. Patients who died on a Sunday were 3.35 times less likely to be visited compared to people who died on a Tuesday, the study also found.

Although the researchers were hopeful the payment change can correct some of the problem, researchers in an editorial also published in JAMA Internal Medicine suggest more research is needed to determine exactly what families need -- which has a better chance of solving the problem, they say. "Rather than putting too much emphasis on a process measure," they wrote, "our goal should be to directly measure what matters to patients and their family members, use these data to craft solutions to improve the delivery of care by individual hospice programs, and ensure open access to this information to promote the best possible experiences for patients and their families near the end of life."
