Whistleblower’s is presented in coordination with Marcel Reid and the Annual Whistleblower’s Summit in Washington D.C., July 30 & 31, 2018.
Guest: Arlene Mullen with Dialysis Advocates (dialysisadvocates.com)
We will have several dialysis patients who have been ejected from the medical program relate their stories as to how they were lied about in medical files and taken off of transplant lists as a result.
Self-regulated, no oversight, systems created as a supposed public benefit, the dialysis industry profits from the patients it was created to serve. Nephrology groups own the contracts and provide no statistics on the effectiveness of the services they deliver. In a system that routinely blames the patient as an excuse to terminate dialysis services, patients are ejected from the program and may not re-enter it except as an emergency room patient.
The Stark Law is a healthcare fraud and abuse law that prohibits physicians from referring patients for certain designated health services paid for by Medicare to any entity in which they have a “financial relationship.”
