U.S. healthcare system collapsing into massive FRAUD network of criminal cancer doctors, hospice executives and con artist physicians
Whether it is due to dramatic government overreach via massive laws like Obamacare, with its incentive-killing regulations, or there simply being too much greed in the world, the U.S. healthcare system is dying. And while that may be a good thing for some people, the dying process is costing us billions of dollars and thousands of lives.
In recent days, the CEO of a major healthcare company was charged with defrauding the U.S. government (read taxpayers) by the FBI, no less. Novus Health Services owner and CEO Brad Harris was accused of regularly directing nurses to give hospice patients overdoses of drugs like morphine, so they could speed up their deaths and thus maximize profits.
According to the Dallas Business Journal, Harris would send text messages (idiot!) to nurses with messages like, “You need to make this patient go bye-bye,” FBI agents said in a search warrant affidavit.
Culture of corruption
An accountant with no medical training whatsoever (or licenses), Harris told a nurse to administer overdoses to three patients, while ordering another employee to boost a patient’s medication dosage to four times the maximum level, according to the FBI affidavit.
In at least the first case, the nurse refused to follow Harris’ alleged order, according to the search warrant, which was seen by a local NBC affiliate news team. But the affidavit does not state whether any of the other three patients were harmed.
Also, Harris allegedly told other health professionals over lunch that he was looking to “find patients who would die within 24 hours,” and made other disturbing comments like, “If this [expletive] would just die….”
One employee also told the FBI that Harris himself made the decision of which home health patients would be moved to hospice, according to the local NBC affiliate.
“He did this by having employees who were not doctors sign the certifications with the names of doctors also employed by Novus,” an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit. “If a patient was on hospice care for too long, Harris would direct the patient be moved back to home health, irrespective of whether the patient needed continued hospice care.”
In August 2013, Natural News reported that a Michigan oncologist was arrested and held on a $9 million bond for intentionally misdiagnosing his patients with cancer so he could make millions of dollars off of their expensive treatments.
Prosecutors in the case said that Dr. Farid Fata of Oakland Township had fraudulently billed Medicare for tens of millions of dollars at least since 2009, a time span in which he collected some $65 million from the system.
As we reported further:
According to NBC News, FBI agents arrested Fata on the morning of August 7 and proceeded to raid his office, confiscating boxes of medical records, computers, and other potential evidence that they believe proves his guilt. Official reports claim that Fata “intentionally misdiagnosed patients with cancer to justify unnecessary treatments,” which in turn generated large sums of money for Fata’s personal bank accounts.
In March, WDRB reported that a South Florida doctor alleged in a recently filed lawsuit that the Louisville, Kentucky-based Humana Inc. fraudulently overbilled the Medicare Advantage program for six years through two clinics.
What’s going on? And why so much fraud and abuse of the nation’s healthcare system? Because it’s easy to do, that’s why, and because there are literally hundreds of billions of dollars at stake.
Don’t feed into the corruption – learn a better way to fight cancer
That’s why it’s important to register right now for the FREE online docu-series, The Truth About Cancer Summit because, as Natural News editor and Food Forensics author Mike Adams, the Health Ranger notes:
Make no mistake, the cancer industry’s entire profit model is based on keeping people ignorant about cancer causes while keeping them dependent on cancer treatments that don’t work. That combination is the ultimate profit generation scheme for the cancer industry, despite all the suffering, pain and death it causes to human beings who are all victims of the industry.
The cancer industry so steeped in criminality that its own doctors and oncologists routinely rely on false positive diagnoses to earn huge profits by falsely telling people they have cancer, then “treating” them with chemotherapy.
Don’t feed into that. Learn about the breakthrough cancer cures that this broken system will never tell you about at the FREE Truth About Cancer Summit, which begins streaming April 21.
