Cancer is one of the illnesses out there that anyone of us never wishes to be diagnosed with. It is a killer that sucks on your savings before it drains all the life in you. But apparently, there is a deadlier disease out in the medical world and it is a lying doctor who kills the hope in patients for the sole purpose of making a profit.
Just imagine going through chemotherapy, surgeries, and other treatments when you don’t really have cancer. Just imagine shelling out thousands and thousands of dollars on medications for an illness that you are not really suffering from. The worse? Your regular, happy life gets disturbed all because of an intentional wrong diagnosis.
Cancer is a scary illness that none of us would want to acquire.
It may be hard to believe, but there are doctors who really do unscrupulous things for their thirst for money. Several doctors already confessed to intentionally diagnosing healthy people with cancer to make a profit. One of the most talked about cases related to this is Dr. Farid Fata’s millions of dollars fraud.
Some doctors use cancer to make more profit like Farid Fata.
Back in 2015, it was discovered that Dr. Fata wrongfully diagnosed several of his patients with cancer, and that the malpractice has been going on since 2009. He did the fraud through his medical businesses including the Michigan Hematology Oncology Centers that has offices in Clarkson, Bloomfield Hills, Lapeer, Sterling Heights, Troy and Oak Park. He also prescribed chemotherapy drugs to those patients and made money since doctors receive a kickback with such medication.
Fata intentionally diagnosed healthy people with cancer to get kickbacks from chemo treatments and medication.
Admitting to his crime, Dr. Fata was charged with a $35-million Medicare fraud scheme for unnecessary oncology and hematology treatments. The government then stated that Fata had 1,200 patients diagnosed with cancer who received a total of $62 million from Medicare. His final bill total charged to the government shoot up to over $150 million.
Fata’s scam amounted to millions of dollars from medicare.
U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade swore to have Fata indicted with life imprisonment for his crimes. She also described Fata’s crime as “the most egregious” health care fraud case their office has ever seen.
During the hearing of Fata’s case, he revealed all the cancer drugs he wrongfully prescribed and admitted: “I knew it was medically unnecessary.”
Fata is now behind the bars but there are more doctors admitting to committing the same fraud.
There are more other doctors who are doing the same for the name of money. Retired Oncologist Dr. Sayed Mohammed said he already noticed the trend of fake diagnosis about a decade ago, saying:
“Many of these unscrupulous Physicians are like businessmen without a conscience. The only difference is they have your health and trust in their hands–a very dangerous combination when money is involved.”
