I hope more are caught. However, the prisons are over-crowded.
It's people like this that cause huge problems countrywide. We have enough issues as it is, and we have crooks in uniform taking care of themselves before sick people. Great.
I'm baffled - over here I am working my arse off to get medical tests sorted that are necessary but the system is so tight and slow. Over there it looks like they give the stuff away like free pens. So if we could have a system that meets somewhere half way, that would be nice.
In these scams, do the patients never receive treatment - its just all made up on paper so it can be charged for?
Some recieve care that is appropriate due to the fact that , like some doctors are still legit - go read my hub on medicare fraud in Florida that'll explain it to ya
Hey Starme, I've seen doctors hand out prescriptions for the dumbest things. Not to mention, I've gone to the doctors, with a hurt back, they do test and xrays of my back, only to tell me nothing is wrong with it.
They chalked it up to being pulled muscle or over extended, and sent me home with two separate prescriptions, a muscle relaxer and a pain killer. Plus, I was told to take 4 advil on top of it.
Who is kidding who? And, to throw a monkey wrench into it...stop and think..just for a second.....how many NEW diseases have come to light in the past decade? I can understand science making some advancements...but at least over 1000 new diseases have arrived in the last decade. All new medicines to take for such illness??
Come on people wake up!
(not directed at you Starme) just in general.
not taken as directed at me and I e-mailed the white house about the problem (cause I'm an ass like that) I have been prescribed pain meds when I didn't need them plenty of times - didnt't take them - my soon to be ex- did - but .... that's beside the point (you know the story) some of the NEW diseases are all ligit , Many of them are crap from the Bush era for pharmacutical exploitation and money , money , money , hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... any way , I gotta go play football with my kid before he like freaks out on me or something , more on this later thoug ............... have agood night , reply though , I'll be lookin fer yer reply ....... night
Hey Starme, I do not point the finger at government or the pathetic officials in office. I do however, have a problem where only ONE foolish survey makes a claim, and then lifestyles become slightly altered due to the results. It's B.S.!
yeah, me too, but one commercial can do that to , ever see the ones about meds , that say ask your doc if this is right for you, I quit wathcing tv for one reason every time a comercal comes on its for some kind of medication - but - there are alot of foolish people out there that believe everything they hear - take the wal-mart comercials for instance - lowest prices my ass - but - people believe what what they hear - I guess that is why - since all those ads have come out for all those new drugs over this past decade - more and more people are strung out
If you hurt your back in the UK - unless you were in agony or there was very good reason to think the spine was fractured - you wouldn't get an x-ray or MRI until you'd had the problem for maybe 6 months+ - gotta say I prefer it that way - don't want to be having too many unneccesary xrays or pills.
Like what you are saying about all the new diseases. In the end we will get to the stage where everyone has been diagnosed with something.
Hey Spacey, approximately 75% of American are already on legal or illegal drugs.
How pathetic is that?
comes from all the ads for them from the bush erra - and yes, it is seriously pathetic - I - however don't take anything stronger than an advil and an occasional glass of wine
Yes we had to completely and, "fundamentally transform", the entire health-care system to address Madicaid and Madicare fraud.
Its called having a life outside of sitting at my computer in a robe unshaven all day on hub-pages... as some on here do.

Hey Everyone,I am currently doing some research on the health care systems of the US and Canada and am looking for some opinions that you may have regarding comparing the two. If you don't already know, Canada's health services are free to all Canadians. Do you think that is better than...

Hubby went to get his warfarin refilled yesterday. We have good insurance, and with our insurance, our co-pay is $11. Without any insurance, the drug is $10 - at the same pharmacy! ????????? The druggist couldn't explain it. Can you?

I have been listening to how the government has a billion dollars for getting people to sign up for the Affordable Healthcare Act. Would that money have been better spent training more doctors and building new hospitals? New Jersey has closed how many community hospitals in the last few...

Barrels of ink have been spilled over Medicare during this year's campaign. There's nothing wrong with that: Obama and Romney have fundamentally different approaches to Medicare and they deserve attention. Romney, for example, wants to increase the eligibility age to 67 and convert Medicare into a...
