The Florida House and Senate recently passed a clearly protectionist bill. Fl 670, meant to shield the owners, investors, managers and other employees and individuals from liability for their failure to protect, and to ensure the well-being and rights of home residents, is a clear violation of federal code regarding these same individuals.
Rick Scott, Florida governor and holder of the largest Medicare Fraud Scam on record, dutifully signed this bill into law knowing full well that the abuse, neglect and deprivation of individual rights of nursing home residents would explode as a result.
Scott, apparently not remotely concerned with what is an obvious conflict of interest, or, against the best interests of nursing home residents, signed FL 670 into law. This despite his active construction of the largest Medicare scams in US history.
Miami officials exposed the fraud in June of 2009. Five states were involved and several fake businesses were found operating with the intent to defraud Medicare and Medicare Advantage for non-existent drugs and treatments for cancer and HIV. Scott, and seven other defendants were identified in the scam.
Guess how much time any one of them served for this fraud and theft? If you guessed “0“, you would be correct. Instead of going to prison for grand larceny, theft by deception or any other relevant charge, they paid 1.7 billion in fines and settlement and got a “get out of jail for 1.7 billion” pass. Of course, we can find no evidence that the fine was actually ever paid in part or full. More

“affordable” care, health insurance exchange subsidies, insurance industry, Marilyn M. Singleton MD JD, Medicaid, medicare fraud, obamacare, President Obama
By Marilyn M. Singleton, M.D., J.D.,
When President Obama hawks the wonders of the misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, I’m reminded of those “As Seen on TV” products.
True believers ridiculed critics of the Independent Payment Advisory Board and its unchecked power to ration health care. They were impressed by the $575 billion cut to Medicare, although lower payments lead physicians to accept fewer Medicare patients. They cheered because 11 million Americans will be added to the Medicaid rolls over the next ten years. While Medicaid looks like is a good deal with its low co-pays, provider payments are so low that only one-third of physicians accept new Medicaid patients.
True believers scoffed at claims of loss of privacy. After the NSA snooping revelations, a Pew survey revealed that 70 percent of Americans believe the government is using data for purposes other than fighting terrorism. Not only could unethical employees misuse health and financial information, the health “Data Hub” can be shared among seven federal agencies for ill-defined “routine uses.” According to a former HHS general counsel, the federal government’s computer program for insurance exchanges lacks privacy safeguards and could expose applicants to identity theft.
President Obama has repeatedly promised that “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” Even his Praetorian Guard has now defected. The National Treasury Employees Union—which represents the IRS folks who are ultimately in charge of ObamaCare—does not want its members to be “pushed out” of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and into the insurance exchanges.

AMA code, cardiovascular surgeon John Natale, Dr. Natale, medicare fraud, obamacare, procedural rules, substantive justice, targeting the elderly
By Author-Contributor Jane M. Orient, M.D., http://www.drjaneorient.com/credentials.php
As cardiovascular surgeon John Natale, M.D., sits in federal prison, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago heard his appeal on April 18. The implications of the case are profound, the judge noted: Any error in any medical record related to a health program could be a federal crime.
As cardiovascular surgeon John Natale, M.D., sits in federal prison, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago heard his appeal on April 18.
After a seven-year investigation, Dr. Natale was indicted for Medicare fraud. Unlike the majority of federal defendants, who feel compelled to cave in by signing a plea bargain even when innocent, Dr. Natale courageously exercised his constitutional right to have a public trial. That is in itself considered an “obstruction of justice” by our government. The conviction rate is more than 95 percent, and sentences may be much longer than those meted out to “cooperative” defendants.
The jury found Dr. Natale not guilty on all of the fraud charges. But he was convicted on two counts of making “false statements” in his operative reports. Over his objection, prejudicial diagrams were sent to the jury room, supposedly representing the operation described in the operative report as well as the operation that was actually done. As anyone can see, a Y-shaped graft (mentioned in the operative report) is different from a tube-shaped graft (placed in the patient, by the doctor’s own admission). The government had thereby emphasized a false statement by Defendant. More

Baby boomers now in the sights of predators
You could be the victim of human trafficking under the control of a “guardianship or conservator“. Did you work hard all your life? Did you save and invest? Did you live below your means and pay off your home or property? Were you prepared for your senior years by constructing a will? Designating heirs and the person who was to administer your estate once you had passed on? Well congratulations! Thanks to all your hard work, planning and saving, you too could become the victim of the human trafficking rings operating across the country!
Disabled? Vulnerable adult? They have you in their sights too! You could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars just in inflated institutional billing, billing for non-existent services, pharmacological testing, for doctor services never rendered, for rehabilitation services never supplied. It happens every day and not one of our elected officials will even acknowledge what they know to be true.
Human trafficking is a world wide business and encompasses children, women and vulnerable or aging adults. These individuals are used for sex and/or for profit. Here in the US, a system of corrupt probate courts, predatory guardians who are strangers to the family and victim, attorneys who make their living preying on targeted individuals, operates with what is an apparent protection provided not only by state officials, but also federal officials.
