This site is filled with facts and information to draw attention to a
illegal usage in Rural Butte County Healthcare/Medical Care Industry! Insurance Fraud and Medical Malpractice has been a usage most likely
not unique to Rural Butte County Healthcare/Medical Care Industry.
Butte County cities if lucky have one hospital, like in other one hospital
cities, governing agencies seem to go on the assumption that a poorly, incompetently run "non-profit
hospital" is better than none. (With
limited resources, government agencies police larger cities with the most taxpayers and
In turn, like in mine and my wife's incidents in Rural Butte County the
laws are overlooked, bent, skirted around or completely ignored instead of issuing fines
and jail time, suspending or revoking licenses, leaving small city taxpayers victims of
small community nepotism! Local governing agents, families and friends have to use the
very same emergency services they oversee! (Why
chance jeopardizing their Special Treatment status for medical care services?)
Medical Clinics and Emergency/Immediate/Urgent Care Facilities carry on
with their usage without fear, costing legitimate taxpayers and
Government/Medi-Cal/Medical Insurance millions if not billions of dollars for unneeded,
unwanted services, negligent or incompetent care and in some cases services never
given! Who would know if I went to the doctor 1,2,or 3 times that month if I am not
notified of the charges.
The result is legitimate taxpayers that use these Healthcare Facilities
receive less than professional or ethical treatment and in some cases negligent and or
Over charges for unneeded and or unwanted services, medications and
equipment is rampant and quite obviously tolerated, all passed on to legitimate taxpayers
and employers who become the fall guy!
Why? The answer could only be, (You
cant fix something that is so direly broken) not without starting
from over from scratch, much like Social Security which is unlikely to happen! (It's like trying to extinguish the Sun with a fire hose!)
In my opinion what has happened in the Healthcare Industry worked out a
plea bargain with Government/Medi-Cal, I.E. if the Healthcare/Medical Care Industry
stops breaking one or two Laws/Regulations, the Government/Medi-Cal will look the other
way when the Healthcare/Medical Care Industry violates other laws and regulations the
Government/Medi-Cal feels are both too expensive and time consuming to enforce if no
official or specific complaint is made. (I have heard the terms standard procedure or accepted in the industry!)
Most socioeconomic disadvantaged and all racial/ethnic minority
groups are easy targets for patient misuse! (FRAUD/MALPRACTICE)
Several are second and third generation educated recipients that know how
to take what they can get (Especially drugs!) most are non taxpayers and could not care less about how much the charges
are to public assistance programs.
The Healthcare Industry knows this and charges the max for anything needed
and more so of what is not needed or wanted by the patient. I have proof of this happening
in my wife Emilys case!
This precedence tolerated by the Government/Medi-Cal and Medical Insurance
Industry who in turn passes on the costs to taxpayers and their employers!
I feel its my time to speak out and draw as much attention to this
in hopes the right and or uninformed people will look into the situation and realize this "Illegal usage in the industry" costs
taxpayers money and worse in some cases their lives!
