DOJ BUSTS 412 PEOPLE IN $1.3 BILLION HEALTH CARE FRAUD

 

By Howard Nema

This is nothing new.  It has been going on for decades.

The fact is, prescription opioid addiction is as high as the cost of Obamacare and is running rampant across America.  But this recent DOJ bust merely scratches the surface of billions and billions of dollars of waste, fraud and abuse in the US Healthcare system.

Let’s begin with the fact that Pharmaceuticals are responsible for more addition here in America than heroin and cocaine combined.     This is not an accident.      It is absolutely deliberate and absolutely evil.

From the start, more than 20 years ago, Big Pharma knew that OxyContin was highly addictive, but they calmed concerns with industry funded studies to maximize profits by downplaying the dangers.

Since the founding of Medicare and Medicaid, physicians have committed generational fraud against the system and now, their greed has made many of them drug dealers.

Today it is clear that we can no longer trust our doctors implicitly.  There are bad doctors.  More than any of us would like to admit.  This form of white collar crime not only breaks the trust between physician and patient and reveals a corrupt underbelly Big Pharma does their best to suppress, but it violates the physicians Hippocratic Oath to heal, not harm. 

Worse, the greed and corruption of doctors, insurance and drug companies are why healthcare costs in the US are highest in the world, yet our quality of care ranks #37.  There is only one reason for this atrocious statistic: SYSTEMATIC  CORRUPTION and COLLUSION between Big Pharma, insurance companies and physicians.

While many doctors complain about the high cost of malpractice insurance, they ignore the fact that this type of corruption and organized crime is rampant.   So is death by overdose of OxyContin and heroin.

More and more doctors have become illicit drug dealers.   The problem is far worse than most realize.  The Affordable Care Act, which expanded Medicaid has fueled the fires of both corruption and addiction of the poor, keeping them impoverished and dependent on the system to get their fix.   Or find it out on the streets.

As the medical industry finally recognized the national opioid crisis and limited usage of OxyContin, heroin addiction has soared.  We can all thank the Shadow Government’s 16 year involvement in Afghanistan, revealing a direct correlation to the increase in heroin and opioid addiction here in the States.  Let us also not forget the Brotherhood of Death have a penchant for illicit drug trafficking since the days of the Opium Wars of the 19th century?

Medical elitists also ignore the fact that more than 200,000 Americans die every year as a result of medical mistakes. 

Ask your doctor if cancer and other deadly big pharma side effects are right for you.   This medical mafia racket is well protected by corrupt forces in the FDA who have aligned with Big Pharma and the AMA.  The fact is,  the more than $30 billion in annual judgements against Big Pharma for causing injury and death is simply a cost of doing business.  After all, Big Pharma generates more than $300 billion in sales each year in America alone. This is BIG BUSINESS with a sinister agenda hidden in plain sight. 

 

Hopefully, things are beginning to change for the better.  Yesterday, the Department of Justice indicted 412 people in the largest combined case of health care fraud in history.  As Americans see healthcare costs rise, how much are costs inflated by this systematic fraud and corruption?  

As large as this bust was, it is only the tip of the iceberg.  Of the 412 people facing charges across 41 federal districts, the DOJ alleges have extracted $1.3 billion in false billings.  The defendants include 115 doctors and licensed medical professionals.

120 of the defendants, including doctors, face charges for prescribing and distributing opioids and other narcotics.

Co-conspirators were paid cash kickbacks for supplying information so that providers could bill Medicare for services that were not provided and prescribing and distributing medically unnecessary drugs to people other than who they were prescribed. 

The racket targeted Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE, which provides health insurance for veterans and their families.

Attorney General Sessions stated, “Too many trusted medical professionals like doctors, nurses, and pharmacists have chosen to violate their oaths and put greed ahead of their patients.  Amazingly, some have made their practices into multimillion dollar criminal enterprises. They seem oblivious to the disastrous consequences of their greed. Their actions not only enrich themselves often at the expense of taxpayers but also feed addictions and cause addictions to start. The consequences are real: emergency rooms, jail cells, futures lost, and graveyards.”

Healthcare fraud is constant.   Here in Connecticut, two Norwalk doctors, Bharat Patel, 70, of Milford, and Ramil Mansourov, 47, of Darien were recently busted for fraud and drug dealing.

Dr. Patel is alleged to have regularly sold to addicts for his own profit. Many of these patients filled the prescriptions using state healthcare benefits, and then turned around and sold the pills on the street, contributing to our devastating opioid epidemic,”  US Attorney for the District of Connecticut, Deidre M. Daly  said.

“Dr. Mansourov is also charged with bilking state and federal governments of over $4 million through a phony billing scheme.”  Mansourov is still being sought by authorities.

Patel and Mansourov routinely provided prescriptions for narcotics, including oxycodone and hydrocodone, to patients he knew were addicted or had been arrested for distributing or possessing controlled substances.  Patel also gave prescriptions to patients for cash.  He would also write scripts for people who were not his patients.

Patel and  Mansourov provided patients with unnecessary prescriptions and post-dated prescriptions to individuals, sometimes postmarked with future dates when the doctors were out of the country.

Patel and Mansourov defrauded Medicare and the Connecticut Medicaid Program. The complaint states that  individuals who paid Patel cash for prescriptions used a state Medicaid card and then illegally distributed the drugs.

Between November 2013 and December 2016, Mansourov defrauded the state’s Medicaid program of more than $4 million by billing for home, nursing home and office visits that never happened and billing for visits that he claimed took place on dates on when he was out of the state or country.

Patel and Mansourov are charged with conspiracy to distribute and to possess with intent to distribute narcotics, health care fraud, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Michael Ferguson of the DEA said, “the reckless actions by these two doctors by writing prescriptions outside the scope of their legitimate medical practice contributed to the widespread abuse of opiates, which is a gateway to heroin addiction and is devastating our communities.  In response to the ongoing opioid epidemic, DEA is committed to improve public safety and public health by working with our law enforcement and regulatory partners to ensure these rules and regulations are strictly followed,” .

The National Heath Care Anti-Fraud Association estimates conservatively that health care fraud costs the nation about $68 billion annually — about 3 percent of the nation’s $2.26 trillion in health care spending. Other estimates range as high as 10 percent of annual health care expenditure, or $230 billion.

Since 2007, the Medicare Fraud Strike Force has charged over 3,500 defendants  for over $12.5 billion in healthcare fraud. 

President Trump’s  2017 budget request calls for a  $70 million investment in the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Program.

Attorney General Sessions noted, “While today is a historic day, the department’s work is not finished. In fact, it is just beginning.  We will continue to find, arrest, prosecute, convict, and incarcerate fraudsters and drug dealers wherever they are.  We will use every tool we have to stop criminals from exploiting vulnerable people and stealing our hard-earned tax dollars.  We are continuing to work hard to develop even more techniques to identify and prosecute wrongdoers.”

Amen.   It is refreshing to see a Justice Department actually enforcing existing laws.  It is long past time we took a close look at the rising cost of healthcare and stop the systematic corruption that burdens the people and enriches crony capitalists at the expense and health of the American people.  Attorney General Sessions actions against these evil and corrupt physicians are very promising after 8 years of obstruction of justice.

However, still, one must ask oneself, if some doctors are willing to feed addicts and create new ones for profit, what other evils are they willfully, or unknowingly committing under the cloak and protection of powerful corrupt elements at the AMA, FDA and CDC?

Realizing these facts, no wonder corrupt democrats and republicans alike, who are in the pockets of the Medical Mafia are looking out for their own self interests and fighting tooth and nail to keep Obamacare intact.

Not for the betterment of the people, but for the betterment of their benefactors and themselves.

We must deconstruct healthcare and other corrupt alphabet soup institutional systems to help the people, not exploit or hinder the people. 

Nearly 1/3 of Americans, more than 90 million people are able, but not participating in the workforce.  It is long past time we return  to the founding principles that made America the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the world.  We must restore the general welfare of the people, not generally put the people on welfare.

KID ROCK CONFIRMS MICHIGAN SENATE RUN

By Howard Nema

“Cowboy, baby!”

Musician Kid Rock has announced his bid for the U.S. Senate in Michigan on the GOP ticket in 2018 to challenge Democrat Debbie Stabenow for her seat.

Singer Kid Rock, in a tweet Wednesday, announced his bid for U.S. Senate.

Rock, a  conservative told The Guardian in 2015, “I am definitely a Republican on fiscal issues and the military, but I lean to the middle on social issues. I am no fan of abortion, but it’s not up to a man to tell a woman what to do.  As an ordained minister I don’t look forward to marrying gay people, but I’m not opposed to it.”

Kid’s an ordained minister?  For real? 

Kid Rock would be the first GOP candidate to win a Senate seat since 1998.  Debbie Stabenow has held her seat since 2000.

While Reagan was a celebrity he wasn’t a political novice.  While we need more Americanism in Washington and State and local houses and Kid Rock and Ted Nugent exude Americanism, I hope this doesn’t start to become a trend.  

In my view, despite true red, white and blue Patriotism and devotion to Americanism and the Constitution, generally celebrities competing for political office is a terrible thing for America.   Let’s face it.  For the most part, celebrities are way out of touch with the average American, but they do indeed have curb appeal.  And that curb appeal can be a double edged sword. 

It can also be dangerous.  Manipulative.   After all, six companies own the 90% of record, publishing and movie companies that write these celebrities’ pay checks. 

I see this as the ominous dawning of new era of  social engineering and control via celebrity influence.   Thanks to Edward Bernays introducing fashion and product placement to Hollywood in the 1920’s to sell products to the masses, globalist propaganda is now being directly sold to the masses via their favorite celebrities.

Socially aware, politically active” celebrities,  giving the elite an ultimate propaganda platform to spew their Marxist totalitarian socialist  one world New World Order agenda. 

Yes.  The cult of personality is a dangerous thing.  

Just look what happened with Obama.    I suppose things could get worse.  Imagine Kanye West for President.  Or Meryl Streep….  God help us —  Are these “celebrities popular, alluring?  Yes.  Are they competent to run for office, no.  

Just look at Al Franken.Image result for Al Franken 1970's

These people are actors, performers and entertainers.

Don’t we have enough of these people in Washington and State Houses across the country already?

THE TRUTH ABOUT GLOBALIST PROPAGANDIST MIKA BRZEZINSKI

By Howard Nema

We are living in the technetronic era.   For those who are not in the know, Mika Brzezinski is the daughter of the late political scientist and globalist insider, Zbignew Brzezinski.

In 1970, while she was still a Red diaper baby, Mika’s dad wrote the book, BETWEEN TWO AGES: AMERICA’S ROLE IN THE TECHNOTRONIC ERA.

Zbignew Brzezinski was a member of the Rockefeller apparatus and was one  of the founding members of the Trilateral Commission.  He spent a career in political science working to erase the sovereignty of the United States by forwarding the efforts of the Milner, or Round Table Group; in their neo-feudal quest for domination over the political and economic systems of the world.

Intentionally, I might add — at the “direct expense” of all other economic groups.

Brzezinski referred to these people as “the elite”.   He ran in their circles. He knew them.  And he worked for them.   He was a pro-United Nations, anti-American anti-Constitutional, Council on Foreign Relations globalist elitist, disguised as an American Patriot, just like his daughter Mika.

ZB NWOAnd like her infamous late father, Mika Brzezinski is also a globalist hack, working as a propagandist for the New World Order at MSNBC.

It is unlikely that Mika or her new fiance, phony conservative Joe Scarborough, would read the following quotes from her daddy’s 1970 book on Morning Joe.

For the record, they wouldn’t be read on CNN—or FOX either, for that matter. 

“In the technotronic society the trend would seem to be towards THE AGGREGATION OF THE INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT OF MILLIONS OF UNCOORDINATED CITIZEN, EASILY WITHIN THE REACH OF MAGNETIC AND ATTRACTIVE PERSONALITIES (HN: example: OBAMA) EFFECTIVELY EXPLOITING THE LATEST COMMUNICATIONS TECHNIQUES TO MANIPULATE EMOTIONS AND CONTROL REASON“.

“The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society.   Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values.  (HN:  Individual liberty, family, God, etc.)  Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by the authorities.

“Society dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how.   Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control.”

Like her late father, Mika is working to destroy the sovereignty of America and forward the goals of the United Nations.

How do you think she got her MSNBC  gig in the first place?  Bloodline connections, that’s how.  Today we are living in a society socially engineered by the elite exactly as described 47 years ago in Brzezinski’s 1970 book!  Coincidence?  No.  Social control?   Yes.

ARE YOU WAKING UP YET!

I wonder if Mika will take her future husband Joe Scarborough’s surname?   Who knows?  Maybe she’ll use a hyphen?

Ms. Mika Brzezinski-Scarborough.   I like it.  Sort of has a politically correct ring to it, doesn’t it?
