At times, chiropractors administer unnecessary adjustments after an automobile accident in order to collect maximum insurance payments. However, this practice does not harm the patients, some may even benefit for other ailments which were not caused by the accident.
However, the harmful effects of chemotherapy and radiation are known to us all, and regardless of the claims of the conventional medicine, their true cure rate is below 5 percent.
Yet, the cancer industry claims higher rates based on patients remaining alive for five years or remissions that don’t last. However, even after that, it is a fact that many patients don’t live much longer or their overall health is adversely affected.
To be more specific, deaths during chemo or radiation are attributed to the disease and never to the treatments, though it has been observed that chemo and radiation do worsen health and even kill.
The mainstream cancer industry would fail without insurance to cover their outrageous costs, since so few can afford them. On the other hand, much less expensive and much more effective cancer treatments are not covered by insurance in the USA.
Facts say that in one decade alone, the incomes of oncologists have increased over 85 percent even as patient visits increased only 12 percent.
Unfortunately, it seems that cancer tests for early intervention can contribute to cancer, as mammograms and PSA tests may often lead to injurious biopsies. Hence, a doctor can get cynical enough to exploit the insurance coverage by administering harsh chemo drugs if the patient shouldn’t receive them or even if the patient doesn’t have cancer at all.
A practice of this kind is to maintain high chemo dosing and/or radiation with heavy morphine dosing added as an older patient is hopelessly on the way out. Undoubtedly the bill goes straight to Medicare or Medicaid.
The article “Dying Cancer Patients are Being Milked of Every Last Dollar” by the journalist Tony Isaacs speaks about the claims published in “The Oncologist” and the journal “Cancer” that one in five dying patients are given chemo with two weeks of their deaths and a third of terminal cancer patients aren’t sent to hospice until they have three days or less to live.
Isaacs also reported how 25 percent of Medicare expenses occurred in Virginia during patients’ final month.
At the same time, radiation treatments were prescribed to 91 percent of dying cancer patients, most of them dying in agony from those treatments before they could even finish them.
Therefore, it seems that as long as it is financially profitable, doctors will continue pumping dying older patients with toxic drugs and cooking them with radiation treatments. What’s more, most of those patients are heavily discouraged from seeking less harmful and more effective alternative treatments.
Moreover, especially in case of older people, Medicare is usually the bank that gets exploited even though that program does not usually completely pay what oncologists normally invoice for their “services”. Hence, as Medicare usually doesn’t cover the whole bill, the patient or the patient’s immediate family is responsible for the remainder of the bill.
Recent Real- Life Example of Medical Insurance Fraud
Dr. Sayed Mohammed, a retired oncologist, has noticed the malicious trend among his colleagues over the last decade, saying that“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.”
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.
Consequently, a doctor in Michigan, Dr. Farid Fata, got sniffed out in 2014.
He surprisingly confessed to intentionally and wrongfully diagnosing relatively healthy people with cancer for the purpose of profiteering from chemo drug sales. For over a six year period, Dr. Fata had a patient load of 1,200 people and received $62 million from Medicare; he billed for more than $150 million.
U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said she plans to seek life in prison for Fata, as this case was “the most egregious” health care fraud case in her carrier. She said Fata not only bilked the government, but he also harmed patients over that period.
