    Fraud Yet Again. But You Would Rather Complain About Single Mother Of 3 Getting 370.00 Month? (If I am still being posted from Canada? I am not Canadian. I was born and raised in the United States)

    Nola.com
    Times Picayune LA. Dec. 16, 2011
    An alleged phony billing scam for Medicaid and Medicare, centered at health clinics in Metairie and Kenner, involved a dozen people and netted more than $21 million — nearly double what federal authorities initially found, according to a grand jury indictment handed up Friday. The defendants, including two elderly doctors, schemed to collect from the government programs on thousands of tests that were never performed, and for others done unnecessarily, the indictment alleges.

    “Marketers” and “recruiters” would find patients and transport them to the clinics in exchange for prescription drugs and cash, and several patients would be shuttled among various clinics for redundant tests.

    Dr. Jerry Haskin, 79, of New Orleans, and Dr. Jack Voight, 80, of Metairie, each could face more than a century of prison time if convicted for their roles in allegedly bilking the government through various New Orleans clinics: Health Plus Consulting, Saturn Medical Group, New Millenium Medical Group and Metairie Health Center.

    Dr. Yelena Ivanova, 56, of Kenner, was part of the same scheme while working at Health Guard in Kenner, according to the complaint.

    It’s odd really. This isn’t the only Medicare/medicaid fraud that has gone on all over this country.Fraud, totalling hundreds of millions, even over a trillion wherein doctors, hospital administrators, etc. are bilkikng You the taxpayer out of far more than the average recipient even if we total all of them.
    What is it with people that seemingly ‘forgive’ someone involved in big-time fraud, and yet screaming the less fortunate?
    Ever notice how big time fraud gets put in the ‘business sections’ of the newspapers?

    what a world!
    Pathetic.

    my dad cleaned out a house and he found a ton of times picayune (new orleans) newspapers under neath the floor boards. they all range from april and may from 1945. one of them says as the big title, ” HITLER IS DEAD, NAZIS CLAIM” there really cool and others ones have ads from the time and classifieds and one of them has the allies plan to attack normandy. theres about 15 that we kept and threw the others away. there not in the bestshape though. theres water stains, theres a few tears on some of them, and some have little places thatwere cutuout to get a coupon, and they smelled terrible before airing them out. thanks

      Idk, but i would offer said papers to my local museum for display, and feel proud that i had done so. Your local city museum would welcome such gladly and maybe they could put a little notice up that they were offered by your family for display purpose, mentioning your family name and maybe as to how the find came about. That would be nice for all concerned especially the general public who would just love to see all this in print.
