Medical Fraud Billing Practices

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Medical Fraud. False and intentionally misleading statements to patients. Submitting false bills or claims for service. Health care fraud is a crime that involves misrepresenting information, concealing information, or deceiving a person or entity in order to receive benefits, or to make a financial profit. Started 09/02/2020; Statement sent by Pima Heart and Vascular. Dr Winter and Dr Algeo both from same office sent statements by Pima Heart and Vascular For 2 charges each-dated 09/02/2020, sent to me and Wellcare Insurance Company; Charges of $63. and $53 from Dr Winter; $63. and $53. from Dr Algeo. I called on receipt of statements. Pima Heart and Vascular explained they were the billing agent for the Drs. Explaned, what charges were for? PM DEVICE INTERROGATE REMOTE; PM/ICD REMOTE TECH SERV-PH? SUPPOSEDLY ACCESSING REMOTELY INFO FROM A PACEMAKER? I ADVISED I DO NOT HAVE A PACEMAKER, NEVER HAD ONE! ASKED ME IF I WAS SURE! I TOLD THEM TO CALL DR WINTER, ASK. THEY ADVISED TO FORGET BILL! Nov, 2020 statement come with another set of charges to Wellcare and me. Called advised as had previously done, Pima Heart and Vascular, said to ignored bill, Now unable to reach Dr Algeo and Dr Winters-Did not return my calls! Dec 2020 same statements come with a note amount will be sent to collections; Again called, said to ignore bill. I Called Wellcare Insurance who had paid the bills, advised was FRAUDULENT BILLING; Wellcare investigated found billings were fraudulent. Fraudulent statements were sent in 2021 same values-calls. Pima Heart and Vascular told me they had repaid Wellcare/Medicare for the previous payments, I tried to verify, not able verify amounts paid back. Dr winters retired in 2022, (apparently he was also, Dr Algeo) and sold this service to a Dr. Tirrito who's office phone number is where Dr Winter and Dr Algeo, were located and After 3 years of call about this billing they still send me a bill for $63. and $53. Pima Heart and Vascular Knowing are sending and threatening collections to me. I will not call anymore! I am sending this letter to the FTC, BBB and Pissed -Off Customers. Then I will sue Pima Heart and Vascular Knowing sending me this FRAUDULENT BILLING and have been notified by me over 20 times by phone since the Fraud Billing Started, 2020.
