(My San Antonio)   We here at the Scooter Store would like everyone to know that even though 150 FBI agents raided our offices and we have laid off everyone in the company as of last Friday, that our company is NOT, and we repeat NOT part of any federal investigation   ( mysanantonio.com) divider line

In most cases, they don't even need one. They can walk, but when the Scooter Store commercials promise that they can get them for free, the lazy fat bastards want one and drive Medicaid even deeper into the hole.

poe_zlaw: It's not the actual Scooter Store itself, it is the employees that are under investigation.

FTFA: "As of last month, The Scooter Store had about 1,800 employees, including 1,200 headquarters staff."

Sounds like they have centralized the "cooking up bogus medical paperwork" function, and that is their main labor cost toward helping people get free government bought scooters.

thenumber5: ShawnDoc: realmolo: Essentially, the entire DME industry is based on defrauding Medicare. That's how they all make their money. It's sickening.

Care to share a few real-life examples of the more egregious behavior?

Lets see...

only about .5% of Cpap/Bipap patients actually need them
"Sleep Studies" are a scam

Hard to get Approval on "Scooter" but dead simple to get one on a Power-chair
pay ~800 for a new Powerchair, by law have to bill 5000

Really?  My doctor suggested I'd benefit from a cpap device, and suggested I go to a sleep clinic to be tested for it.  I'd be amazed to find out he was getting kickbacks or anything, he's a pretty good guy.

/Didn't go, figured a cpap mask would get in the way of my drinking

I'm disabled do to Polio, compounded by an 'on the job' back injury, and I now have to use a cane to walk at all.  AKA as 'Fat Farking Slob' to some of you.  I contacted the Scooter Store about possibly getting a scooter so I could go to flea markets, malls, farmers markets etc.  They tried to talk me into getting a 'power chair' instead.  I said I wanted a 'Scooter' so I could use it 'outdoors'.  They told me they only deal with people who need them 'indoors' and that's all Medicare cares about, so all I could get was a 'power chair' and that they didn't deal in 'Scooters'.  I told them, in that case, they better change their farking name to 'Power Chair Store'.

"Employee furloughs are a positive alternative to layoffs, but they have negative consequences, too. Employee furloughs are mandatory time off work with no pay. Used as an alternative to a layoff, employee furloughs can occur in both public and private sector organizations when revenue or projected revenue fails to match expenses. " - About.com

thanks for the time off without pay, Fartbongo Hoover McMedicaid FraudBusters

/ they should have been cops who shot & killed innocent people = time off with pay

Good. If I ever get to the point that I can't walk I'm killing myself with a whole shiat load of heroin, Viagra, and two female hookers at the same time.

I always wondered how they were able to magically have all of these fancy offices and pretty customer service representatives in their pretty cubes giving away free pretty scooters to deserving fat farks.
