Felos and Fraud.....The Empire Journal Does it AGAIN!

The Empire Journal has done a FANTASTIC job of investigative journalism in the Terri Schiavo case.

According to records The Empire Journal has obtained from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the federal agency has initiated collection procedures against the Hospice of Florida Suncoast to recover some $14.8 million which they say was unlawfully paid to the hospice as a result of fraudulent claims made for Medicare reimbursement for patients that were not terminally ill and therefore not eligible for hospice care. According to the 2004 annual report of HHS filed Dec.31, 2004, the agency has initiated collection procedures against the hospice.

The federal agency has been trying to recover the Medicare overpayments made to the hospice since May, 1997 at the time when Felos was chairman of the board.

The Empire Journal has done such a GREAT job that they have had their site hacked, and had to make measures to protect their work from those that seek to silence them......

You can help get their news out by going to Google Search and typing in "The Empire Journal." in order to bring them back to the top of the Google pages. This is important because their work NEEDS to reach as many as possible. IT IS VITAL IN THE FIGHT FOR TERRI.....
