n. A style of treating patients implicitly based on their social and financial status (be it by quality or lack of insurance, etc.).

ant. outcome-based medicine, of which this term is a parody.
When I was in the ER, I didn't have proof of insurance on me, so they asked me to make a deposit of $100... as if it were income-based medicine or something!
