Sad news for the world of DME companies. On the news this morning, TX based Scooter Store HQ raided yesterday by FBI and TX Atty. Genl. office for gaming the system. Over $108 Billion (with a B!) in false Medicare claims for people who really did not need scooters and electric wheelchairs. How did they get it? Their sales team bug the docs so much to get scrips written, the docs gave up and said OK here’s the scrip, stop bugging me! That hurts the rest of the industry who works by the books. Always some jerk company who has to be greedy. 🙁
Wonder how upcoming Med-Trade conference in Vegas next month will see this? Your comments?
