    Medicaid Paid for Treating Dead

    Culver City CA - March 15, 2010:

    Insurance Fraud and Insurance Claims Expert, Barry Zalma, reports that when
    a state audit - covering only some records - discovered that Medicaid had
    paid for services to 287 dead patients. Nassau County, New York District
    Attorney Kathleen Rice complained, on March 8, 2010, that state policies are
    impeding local prosecution of Medicaid fraud and even making it easier for
    scammers to apply for benefits. Rice complained that state health officials
    are blocking access to Medicaid records. This teaches all insurance
    professionals of the need to audit medical services providers on a regular
    schedule.

    "The only way to deal with insurance fraud is to take the profit out of it."
    Mr. Zalma, said. "When a clinic can bill - and collect - for services to
    the dead who obviously did not need the services, and the local prosecutor
    is not allowed to search records to prosecute the criminals, the state is
    working for the criminals not the honest people of the state."

    In the March 15, 2010 issue of Zalma's Insurance Fraud Letter (ZIFL), Mr.
    Zalma also reports on an arsonist with umitigated gall - chutzpah - who
    after being convicted of arson-for-profit for burning down his mother's
    grocery store for the insurance money complained about the sentence; what is
    necessary to protect recorded statements as protected work product; and the
    failure of a life insurance fraud due to a thorough investigation by the
    insurer. In addition ZIFL reports on convictions of insurance fraud
    criminals who were too greedy to avoid arrest and conviction.
