FL Dr scams medicare for $21 million in one year
MIAMI — The doctor who bills the most for Medicare in the country is a South Florida ophthalmologist whose offices were twice raided last year by the FBI and whose generous political contributions and cozy relationship with a New Jersey senator, Robert Menendez, are under investigation by federal public corruption prosecutors, a New York Times analysis of Medicare data shows.
Data released Wednesday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services show Dr. Salomon E. Melgen, 59, who moved to Florida from the Dominican Republic in the late 1970s, received $21 million in Medicare reimbursements in 2012 alone. The doctor billed mostly for Lucentis, a medication used to treat macular degeneration made by a company that pays generous rebates to its doctors.

The hearing involved a port security company that Dr. Melgen had purchased in his native country in the hopes that the Dominican Republic would start screening every container on every outbound vessel. The Customs agency there refused to honor the contract, and Senator Menendez urged U.S. officials to get involved.
Without mentioning his friend, the senator urged federal agencies not to donate equipment that would have competed with the doctor’s business plans.

Wasn't Menendez involved in a scandal with under aged girls? He sounds like a real stand up democrat, doesn't he?

Saloman, is that a baptist name?

Did you even have to wonder?
