...
, Harris pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States, to cause the submission of false claims and to pay health care kickbacks; one count of conspiracy to commit health care fraud; and three counts of submitting false claims to the Medicare program. Harris pleaded guilty in connection with his role as the medical director for Physicians Med-Care and Physicians Health Med-Care (Physicians Health), two Miami -area HIV clinics that purported to provide HIV infusion services to Medicare beneficiaries.
Harris admitted during his plea hearing that between August 2002 and March 2004 , he conspired with others to operate two Miami HIV infusion clinics that were owned and controlled by Carlos and Luis Benitez
and that were operated for the sole purpose of committing Medicare fraud. Prior to August 2002 , Harris admitted he had no prior experience with infusion therapy for HIV patients. Harris also admitted to conspiring with others to pay cash kickbacks to the Medicare beneficiaries who attended Physicians Med-Care and Physicians Health. Harris admitted that during his employment with Physicians Med-Care and Physicians Health, he approved approximately $26.2 million worth of fraudulent medical bills, signed documents containing false information about treatments purportedly provided to HIV patients and approved medically unnecessary treatments.
"Diabetes is preventable," said ...
citizensvoice.com, 28 Mar 2011 [cached]
"Diabetes is preventable," said Ronald Harris, M.D., an endocrinologist at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center.
...
Harris said the area's aging population might also play a role - almost 27 percent of people 65 and older had diabetes, according to CDC data from 2010.
"And that goes up even more if you have a family history, or if you have those risk factors like being overweight, having high cholesterol," he said.
Both Harris and Kaberi-Otarod said there needs to be a deeper focus locally on reaching those at risk of developing the disease. Geisinger has developed a system in which diabetic patients' progress - from blood sugar readings and blood work to whether they have received certain vaccines and foot checkups - is tracked through electronic medical records.
Harris said there needs to be more resources to make sure diabetics are receiving preventive treatment and making lifestyle changes necessary to avoid diabetes complications like blindness, kidney failure, strokes and foot problems that can result in amputations.
He said the growing emphasis on the concept of medical homes - where a doctor coordinates the different types of care a patient to increase both efficiency and value - will likely result in access to more resources for diabetics and others struggling with chronic disease.
"Doctors and patients need to work together," Harris said.
