Medicare: One Doctor leads largest fraud $375,000,000 over 5 years
One doctor leads largest Medicare fraud
Dr. Jacques Roy, a Dallas area physician, allegedly led a scheme that bilked Medicare for nearly $375 million over five years, in the single largest healthcare fraud committed in the United States, federal authorities announced Tuesday.
Roy, 54, his office manager, and five owners of home health agencies, were arrested and indicted on charges related to their alleged participation in the scheme that involved fraudulent claims for home health services.
I'm sure there will be others.
Fraud, abuse, and waste of healthcare services is deplorable in Medicare & Medicaid (not to mention commercial plans)~ krimekat ~

I remember I would go over the bills as they would come in after my first son was born just to make sure things werent being charged to the account that hadn't happened because I had been charged for TWO circumcision's ! If that was the case I'm not sure he would have had a pe*** left , that is what I told the lady in billing.
Im glad they were caught.............What lies behind you and what lies in front of you pales in comparison to what lies inside of you....
