they are. on the federal level. locally, cambridge hospital made sure one of their own became the director of massachusetts medicaid (which is called masshealth). it really is no different from goldman sachs sending their people to run the treasury dept. . dr julian harris went straight from residency training (!!) at cambridge hospital and the brigham to becoming director of masshealth. this is what the exercise of power looks like. http://articles.boston.com/2011-06-02/news/29613664_1_health-care-primary-care-harris http://commonhealth.wbur.org/2011/06/medicaid-director-julian-harris/ julian also worked heroically for "doctors for obama" and it's post-election reincarnation "doctors for america". if you google "julian harris and obama" the first link is a paper on candidate obama's health plan that he co-authored with jay bhatt who also is at cambridge hospital and is one of don berwick's proteg?s. they all are also members of PNHP, physicians for a national healthplan. dr rachel nardin, who spied on me daily for a whole year to find some dirt, is the president of the massachusetts chapter of PNHP. and the first thing julian did as director was tell me i had been randomly chosen for an audit. i had been waiting for him to do exactly that :-)) so when i opened the letter i burst out laughing and the clinic secretary said, 'you know, that's not what most doctors do when they hear they've been selected for an insurance audit'. i assured her it wasn't a real audit anyway, just corrupt intimidation. the list of 8 patients sent over interestingly was the same 8 patients chosen by cambridge hospital back in november 2010 for their 29-minute executive committee meeting. what an amazing coincidence :-) what is even funnier is that i have not billed for seeing any patients for a whole year. and since masshealth have not paid me a cent in all of 2011 they know it too. naturally i sent back a robust letter laying the past one year out and asking him to get the records from cambridge hospital just like he got the list from them! i am not afraid of him or his audit. now that i have roped in the inspector general in washington along with three senators and the governor himself, i hear masshealth are having a rethink..... :-)) welcome to real fraud. bharani Date: Thu, 2 Feb 2012 18:14:34 -0500 From: Lew Schwartz <lew1716 at gmail.com> Subject: Re: [Leica] Photographic Freedom To: Leica Users Group <lug at leica-users.org> Message-ID: <CAFuU78cUPnRALeBPoY+ob351tBO__Om-UhUU9-dgLAnW2DWt+Q at mail.gmail.com> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1 Weren't the insurance companies and/or State Dept of Insurance interested in these allegations? >when in my old hospital, cambridge health alliance, a public hospital within the Harvard system, i stood up and complained about the radiology department issuing Brain MRI reports without actually looking at the scans. and charging insurance for them, of course.
