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.

OBAMACARE CORRUPTION DESIGNED TO SHIELD DEMOCRATS DURING MID TERMS

obama-doctor-needle (1)

By Howard Nema

Obama the Great Deceiver is up to his old tricks.  If he is not shredding the Constitution and changing laws to shield his constituents from the socialist take over over Amerika, he is delaying mandates that will ultimately crush small businesses and lead to further unemployment and economic woes for Americans.  

What is good for America has NEVER counted.  All that has ever counted was figuring ways to bamboozle blacks and minorities to get out to the polls and vote for candidates that actually harm their economic situation and prospects for current and future employment.    

OBAMA'S SHEEP

Of course, Obama and other demo-com leaders know this.   They play their constituents as fools, throwing them under the bus and into poverty to retain power.

After all, the Democrats and Republicans are locked in an eternal battle of King of the Hill.  The Hill is of course, OWNED by the global elite puppet masters who enjoy watching the ping-pong game like Don King, who won every match he promoted because he OWNED both fighters.

Despite all the “Helping the American People” rhetoric spewed from both sides of the aisle, power is all that matters to these political denizens, not the general welfare of the American people. It never has and never will. 

george-bush-jeb-bush-hug-Photograph-by-Corbis

But the misery of the looming Affordable Care Act cost increases will place upon the American people and using the race card for political purposes to retain power is truly unprecedented, far worse than when Bush stole the 2000 and 2004 elections when brother Jeb was governor of Florida.

 

GORE BVUSH' gore_bush_florida_time_large

History has proven that Obama has done nothing to help the black population, but constantly talks about helping “black folks” and uses events like the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown shootings as political cannon fodder to foment racial division and to gain voter support.  

TRAYVON AND MICHAEL

Support that has left supporters of Obama in the black community in the lurch.  Simply put, Obama is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

 

OBAMANOIIDDS

Under the Obama Administration, the black community has suffered the most here in Amerika, with the highest rates of unemployment and poverty in the country.  

Obama also gives constant praise to Planned Parenthood for giving blacks and minorities access to women’s healthcare “services”, which means abortions.  

Never does Obama mention the fact that 50% of black pregnancies end in abortion at Planned Parenthood clinics, which are conveniently located in black and minority communities nationwide.  

obama-rockefeller

It is clear that Obama is about as black as Jay Rockefeller.

 

OBAMA PUPPET OBAMA SERVES TEH ELITE

In fact,  Barrack Hussein Obama has not served the black community or the We the People on iota in the last six years.  He has of course, greatly served the global elite.

 

BLACK AGANST OBAMA BLACKS AGAINST OBAA'

Many black Americans are waking up to this reality, but sadly most are uninformed, or unwilling to face this crystal clear reality.  

Despite pandering for black votes, Obama’s policies continue to be a severe detriment to the black community.

 

holder-sharpton

By using race baiters Eric Holder and Al Sharpton to shill for the black vote with political deceptions and distractions, black Americans continue to suffer as the socialist agenda moves forward.

ChainsforObama

The keystone to this socialist take-over of course, is Obamacare.   How soon some Americans forget the lies about the Un-Affordable Care Act:

 

OBAMA LIARSSS

“You can keep your doctor.”

“You can keep your insurance.”

“Your premiums will go down $2500 per year”

All lies.   The only thing that mattered to the Democrats was to get healthcare passed at all costs.  

Remember what Nancy Pelosi said?

PELOSI LIES

 

obama-poverty-soup-e1315934321164

After all, transforming America into the folds of the one world totalitarian socialist New World Order agenda requires socialized medicine as a pre-requisite to control populations.  Textbook.

OBAMA CHANGE

This rule is set in stone in all totalitarian regimes.  It is a necessity in order to control populations.   

As a result physicians are already retiring and leaving the profession in droves.   Most patients will be forces to see APRN’s as primary care physicians.  

Specialists will be in short supply.  Nurses are already at a shortage.  

obamacare2

These changes are a recipe for disaster that will result in long waits and substandard care.

America already ranks #11 in quality of care and #1 in health care costs.

Obamacare will force healthcare costs will rise and the quality of care received by Americans will diminish incredibly, especially after January 1, 2015 when the full force of Obama hits and businesses will be faced with crippling healthcare cost increases that will result in reduced hours and increased unemployment.  

ObamaCare-Small-Businesses-final_71713

So much for caring about the American people, right? 

 

OBAMA LIES

To make matters worse, and expose the cold, callous political agenda,  insurance companies who normally announce their pricing  60 days before the first day of the year have been forced by the totalitarian Obama Regime to withhold their price increases until 2015 shielding democrats from the inevitable cost increases and not dissuade democrat voters from the polls, or worse, persuade them to vote republican in today’s mid-term elections. 

You may recall that the Obama regime pulled the same unconstitutional stunt of delaying the full weight of Obamacare to 2014 during the 2012 presidential election.

What a disgraceful mess. 

 

FOLEY MALLOY

Showing his true colors and fearing a loss to republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley, Connecticut governor Dan Malloy sought to keep the polls open later, which is a clear violation of State and Federal election laws.

It seems birds of a feather not only flock together, they shred Constitutional provisions together.

 

OBAMA MALLOY

As freelance writer Warner Todd Huston noted:

Barack Obama is again playing political games with our health insurance industry and has turned in another underhanded move against it by forcing insurance carriers, brokers and agents to withhold their 2015 prices until after the 2014 midterm elections are over all so that the news of higher prices won’t hurt Democrats on Election Day.

This means that customers looking to get new insurance or those wishing to scout new policies to see if they can get a better deal are not able to shop for insurance.

Before we get into that, though, millions of new cancellations will be hitting on January 1, 2015. Much of this news has gone under the radar as Democrats and their lapdog media are keeping this as quiet as possible.

There is also something different with these cancellations, something that has never happened before in the healthcare insurance industry. Past practice has always been that the next year’s new rates are released 60 days before the first day of the next year. But Obama has mandated that companies hold back on that normal practice so that he can shield Democrats at the polls.

Insurance agent C. Steven Tucker explained it this way:

This year, for the first time in 20 years I can not even quote a replacement product because Barack Obama has issued a GAG ORDER to the health insurance industry instructing them not to disclose their January 2015 health insurance rates until after the mid-term elections.

This is unprecedented.Normally health insurance premiums are released for public viewing 60 days before the January 1st effective date. Where are the reports on these cancellations and the gag order from NBC, ABC, CBS and CNN? The only news organization that I am aware of that has reported on any of this is the Fox News channel. I can guarantee you one thing, not one of my clients who received a cancellation notice is voting Democrat on Tuesday.
