See below. This is a huge and major case in Chicago, but I do not see it mentioned in the Suntimes or Tribune–why?
Go look at the Sun Times website today–no mention under “news”
And look at the Chicago Tribune website today–no mention under “news”
For some reason a $100 million indictment for Medicare Fraud isn’t news according to these publications. Likely restitution will be awarded, and restitution of $100 million to Medicare isn’t news?
e has, so far, been no mention, AS FAR AS I KNOW, in Chicago of this case since one quickly moved to suburban Chicago SunTimes article a year or two ago.
The OBAMA/LYNCH justice department has closed down a vicious institution, and will now jail and fine the perpetrator and at least one of his co-conspirators for this abuse of Medicare/ Medicaid/ the Hospice concept/ the persons confined to hospice when they needed ACTIVE TREATMENT for curable illnesses, OR they were not predictably within six months of death, and being spared invasive treatments that they themselves, and not court appointed guardians DID NOT WANT TO BE SPARED FROM.
In Chicago, at least, this important victory of the OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS BEEN SQUELCHED — so far, and so far as I know — by the ENTIRE CHICAGO MEDIA! Why? For whose benefit?
The jury selection for the following major federal case 14CR33 was supposed to begin today BUT according to the following article,
Is this the only case of its kind IN CHICAGO!!!

Seth Gillman, 47, an attorney and founder of now-shuttered Passages, pled guilty to one count of health care fraud as part of a multi-year scam. The for-profit hospice company was accused of over-billing the government for general inpatient care for patients who did not need it.
Gillman was indicted in May 2014 along with three other Passages employees, including former nursing director Carmen Velez, who also pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government, according to legal news service Law360.
Velez, 39, admitted to altering patient records to reflect a need for general inpatient care before the records were handed over to an auditor working on behalf of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Gillman faces 10 years in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and restitution.

From the ARDC website today (and remember that Seth Gillman pled guilty yesterday to $100 million indictment in Medicare fraud (complaint is published elsewhere on this blog)
you find the following:
The Ill. Atty Regn and Discipline Comm. has got to be kidding. What group of clouted attorneys and judges are they protecting that Gillman is indicted in Jan. of 2014, all during this time, the ARDC continues to persecute and prosecute myself and Lanre Amu for disclosing fruads on the public such as these?
