From Ken and Judy Ditkowsky–Seth Gillman pleads guilty to medicare fraud!

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?

Ther
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,
the accused SETH GILLMAN pled guilty on February 14.  There hasn’t been a word about it in the papers or on TV.  Why not?

Is this the only case of its kind IN CHICAGO!!!

The former owner of Passages Hospice and its director of nursing pled guilty to fraud charges on Friday in Illinois federal court.

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.

Considering how widespread elder cleansing is and the fact that the GAO has written four reports to Congress and so many Americans have been crying about love ones being abused, exploited, isolated as their humanity and their property has been taken from them, this one case = while a great step forward – is puny!
 
What will the Justice Department do about Gillman’s crimes?   Will he get a slap on the wrist a “small fine” and be set free to pillage the ranks of the elderly and disabled once again?   OR is this windfall going to be the Lynch pin (pardon the pun) of a sweeping assault and attack on the miscreant judges, lawyers and public officials who have been preying on the elderly?    
 
As an example –  The IARDC administered by Mr. Jerome Larkin has been aware of Lawyer Gillman’s purloining of trust funds belonging to employees and clients of his company.   The only action that Larkin has taken has been to attempt to suppress public disclosure by Ms. Denison, myself, and others.   His words described the disclosure vehicle as akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater!   JoAnne got a three year suspension, and I got four years because I wrote to the Attorney General of the United States.*   
 
The Civil Rights division of the Justice Department to my knowledge has not done anything and Larkin is still drawing his six figure salary at the IARDC.   The cover-up continues unabated!
Judge Connors was elevated to the Appellate Court, and to my knowledge except of a 60M lien on Adam Stern even the acting miscreants have been given virtual immunity.  
The lives that Gillman and his cohorts his co-conspirators and c0spongers  have destroyed should result in more than a couple of years in prison.    He should be required to provide law enforcement with all the information in his possession and that he has knowledge of concerning the Elder Cleansing Industry so that an HONEST complete and comprehensive investigation will rid America of this cancer!

medicare/medicaid hospice fraud, and Mr. Gillman is/was a Chicagoan.
People were placed in hospice who didn’t meet hospice qualifications;
medications were overprescribed and billed;
does WGN not give the Obama Justice Department its due in its roll
against fighting MEDICARE FRAUD and abuse of persons who may not even
have life threatening illnesses placed in
facilities for people who are expected to die within six months????????

Is this the only case of its kind IN CHICAGO!!!

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:
Full Licensed Name: Seth Gillman
Full Former name(s): None
Date of Admission as Lawyer
by Illinois Supreme Court:
November 4, 1993
Registered Business Address: vivere, inc
320 West Ohio Street 3w
Chicago, IL 60654-7887
Registered Business Phone: (857) 702-5720
Illinois Registration Status: Active and authorized to practice law  – Last Registered Year: 2016
Malpractice Insurance:

In annual registration, attorney reported that he/she does not have malpractice coverage. (Some attorneys, such as judges, government lawyers, and in-house corporate lawyers, may not carry coverage due to the nature of their practice setting.)

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?

  1. Who did Michael Gilman Sell Asta Care to, or is it Arba Care? Now Aperion? His friends, lawyers? Seth Gilman’s father? Such a shame the pain this family has caused so many.

    • Agreed. But the bigger question is, who was protecting Seth Gillman it took 5 years to prosecute him for $100 million in Medicare/Medicaid/State of Illinois health Fund fraud? Why did this take so long. There were assuredly tons of complaints about the way disableds and elders were handled. Why did Jerome Larkin, head of the Atty. Regn. and Disciplinary Commission protect him and why didn’t he and his staff get indicted, as well as the banksters that knew or should have known this was going on? What about the federal government? Who protected him there? Why weren’t those individuals prosecuted and imprisoned. You ask some excellent questions. I for sure want to know the answers.
      Also who in the Chicago mega media is protecting him and his cronies? $100 million in indictments must certainly be news, right? Why is the Chicago Tribune, The Chicago Suntimes, WGN, CBS, NBC, WTTW and Fox Chicago silent on all of this?
