4 charged in alleged California spa fraud

(AP)

Prosecutors say a popular San Francisco Bay Area spa cost insurance companies and employers more than $7 million by falsely billing manicures and pedicures as chiropractic treatments.

The two owners of San Jose Chiro Spa and two employees are each facing 11 counts of health care insurance fraud. Santa Clara County prosecutors say they were arrested on Wednesday.

The investigation, dubbed “Operation Nail Polish,” began in late 2012. Prosecutors say an undercover investigator went into the spa numerous times for manicures and pedicures. Employees allegedly took the investigator’s insurance information and then charged the insurance company for chiropractic treatments.

Prosecutors say about 90 percent of the spa’s business was billed fraudulently.

No one picked up the phone at the spa on Thursday. The defendants are scheduled to be arraigned on June 4.

    这种诈骗行为非常多,这家店只是不幸运不好采,才被执法人员查到而已,而其它医院诈骗保费的事情非常多,却没有被查,更没有被新闻媒体报道,应该是医院大有钱有实力,因此执法部门就不会去查,就算是有人举报执法部门也都不会去查,将宣传汽车停在新闻媒体办公室的门口,新闻媒体也同样是不会报道。看我丈夫Wade怎样被Kaiser医院谋杀的,我又是怎样被Millbrae警察强行被捕,被捕我却不是将我送去法院和监狱,而是将我送去精神病急诊室,Burlingame;Mills-Peninsula Health Services精神病急诊室,不做检查,就派4个彪形大汉,强行绑架给我注射3、4针精神病针药,Millbrae警察强行将我从老人中心卫生间拉出来,送我到San Mateo Medical Center精神病急诊室,医生检查我正常,医生让我出医院,一个电话打给医生,就变了,将我扣留在住院部,医院在2007年8月14日晚饭中投迷幻毒药,医院指挥我做了什么,我不清楚,吓得第二天同病房的人不敢吃饭,Mills-Peninsula Health Services和San Mateo Medical Center.是日本电影“追捕”的复制品,为了赚钱是恶意谋害人的医院。Mills-Peninsula Health Services和San Mateo Medical Center医院就是采取不择手段的方式将原本健康正常的人,迫害折磨成精神病后,医院从中获取长期利益,医院采取迫害折磨健康人,去诈骗国家政府和纳税人的财产,却没有执法人员调查,难道美国政府希望纳税人都成精神病和其它各种各样的疾病吗?凶手还投毒给我和我的家人及我帮助的朋友们,投毒中毒的新闻在2012年新年期间,KTSF电视台新闻报道过,中毒后会导致造成患上各种各样疾病和癌症,还有中毒后会导致各种各样的后遗症和并发症,更多的详细内容,请浏览我的网站:www.wadeg-glandtwendy.com
