Feds bought fraud
So now hospitals are too big to fail. I applaud judge Terrence Boyle’s attempt to hold WakeMed accountable, but without any individual(s) held responsible, nothing will change at the corporate level.
Last week Andrea Sampson, owner of Country Lane Day Treatment in Lumberton, was sentenced to five years in prison for $2.1 million in Medicaid fraud.
Fraud is fraud regardless of the size of the organization or its political influence. WakeMed’s assertion this was the work of a rogue mid-level manager is laughable. The only thing more laughable is the federal government bought it.
