On April 20, 2017 Insurance commissioner Dave Jones and Orange County DA Tony Rackauckas announced a shut down on a $40 million workers’ compensation fraudulent medical billing and kickback operation. The charges are against 26 providers that involve around three key scams: a “snake oil” scam, a medication kickback scam and urine test scam. These scams stem from two poisonous trees which bore 24 poisonous fruits, if not more that may not have fully grown yet. As more on the case develops be sure CostFirst Corp. will be right there to identify and fight against these fraudulent fruits.
