A Tennessee clinic swindled the military out of $65M. This is how it got caught.

Image

Pain creams cost $14,500 — each
In Tennessee, the crux of the cream conspiracy was Choice MD, a small, now-shuttered clinic in Cleveland, a manufacturing town near the Georgia border.

A Choice MD nurse practitioner, Candace Michelle Craven, has admitted she conducted fake telemedicine evaluations with Marines in California so that two Choice MD doctors, Susan Vergot and Carl Lindblad, could write nearly 4,500 cream prescriptions to Marines they had never met or diagnosed.

Each prescription cost about $14,500. American taxpayers covered the cost.

Do you realize that this was a private clinic that did the scamming?

This is a hard concept to explain to people who think the government is competent and is able to see/prevent fraud in and out of the private sector. But of course we can't fire inept people in government positions so the US Gov't will always be an easy target (including the military). Remember when the military was paying $500 a piece for hammers?

A tube of pain cream, basically "BENGAY" should never be covered by insurance in the first place. This is the root cause of all this price distortion of medical costs and a green light to invent these scams that nobody pays attention to prices. Follow the money. :lightbulb:

Great point. One of my friends has a $50 deductible on his car insurance and wonders why he pays so much more than I do. My insurance deductible is $1000. Insurance is meant for major issues, not a broken windshield

You mean Military flunkees approved them.... Why should they care, they spend/distrubute to friends 65 million of our dollars every hour?

65 million to them is like 6.5 cents to me and you

Lets get rid of 70% of the military and make abled bodied veterans under 67 to work like the rest of us.. and lets see what happens?
