Tony also reported how 25 percent of Medicare expenses occurred in Virginia during patients’ final month. So as long as the money is available, pumping dying older patients with toxic drugs and cooking them with radiation treatments is part of that good ole’ standard of care, the culpability cover for damages from conventional medicine.

Meanwhile, most of those patients are heavily discouraged from seeking less harmful and more effective alternative treatments.

With older folks especially, Medicare is usually the piggy bank that gets exploited even though that program does not usually completely pay what oncologists normally invoice for their “services”. And since Medicare usually doesn’t cover the whole bill, the patient or patient’s immediate family is responsible for the remainder of the bill that is zealously pursued by collection agencies for those doctors.

A Recent Real Life Incident of Medical Insurance Fraud

It may be easy to scam a private insurance company somewhat and suffer a refusal to pay or slap on the wrist. But Medicare is a federal program monitored state by state that has ambitious federal prosecutors sniffing for cheaters due to the extreme amounts of payouts that are now suspicious. This is how one doctor in Michigan got sniffed out in 2014.

Dr. Farid Fata, a prominent cancer doctor in Michigan surprisingly confessed to intentionally and wrongfully diagnosing relatively healthy people with cancer for the purpose of profiteering from chemo drug sales.

His crimes were so egregious that the prosecuting federal attorney Barbara McQuade sought a life sentence, not so much for the $62 million dollars he had fraudulently bilked Medicare for over a six year period, but for the harm done to many of his 1200 patients over that time.

According to a retired oncologist, Dr. Sayed Mohammed, who has noticed this trend over the last 10 years, “Many of these unscrupulous physicians are like businessmen without a conscience. The only difference is they have your health and trust in their hands – a very dangerous combination when money is involved.”
