BOOM! Trump’s DOJ criminally charges 76 doctors, 23 pharmacists, 19 nurses raking in billions in medical fraud to push toxic drugs

President Trump is draining the “medical swamp.” The U.S. health care system is plagued by rampant fraud, abuse and profiteering carried out by dishonest doctors and pharmacists. In working to combat the rampant fraud, the DOJ has announced an unprecedented crackdown on medical fraud, charging over 600 people with criminal activities that involved over $2 billion medical fraud.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions delivered prepared remarks, saying, “This year we are charging 601 people, including 76 doctors, 23 pharmacists, 19 nurses, and other medical personnel with more than $2 billion in medical fraud. In this latest operation, with the help of our fabulous partners at HHS, we have charged another 162 people—including 32 doctors—with the illegal distribution of opioids. This is the most doctors, the most medical personnel, and the most fraud that the Department of Justice has ever taken on in any single law enforcement action.  This is the most defendants we’ve ever charged with health care fraud.  It’s also the most opioid-related fraud defendants we’ve ever charged in a single enforcement action.”

One doctor, explained Sessions, defrauded Medicare of over $112 million, “distributing 2.2 million unnecessary doses of drugs like oxycodone and fentanyl.” (See Opioids.news for more coverage of opioid drugs. Another site launching soon is BadDoctors.news.)

Yet more proof that the failed pharma-central health care system is a massive criminal drug racket

This massive sweep of criminal charges shows that, in many ways, the U.S. health care system is a massive criminal drug racket run by criminal doctors and drug companies who all profit from the mass poisoning of the American people. The fact that 76 doctors and 23 pharmacists are named in these indictments is further proof that many so-called “health care” professionals are nothing but glorified drug dealers.

“We are sending a clear message to criminals across the country,” added Sessions. “[W]e will find you. We will bring you to justice.  And you will pay a very high price for what you have done.”

#MAGA has arrived on the health care scene, and the DOJ is mean as a wolverine when it comes to healthcare fraud.

Now, if we could only get Sessions to issue 600+ indictments for the Clinton Foundation racketeering fraud and other deep state swamp creatures, then we’d really be making progress in this country.

It’s also time for Sessions to join the 21st century and de-list cannabis from being a Schedule I drug. (Click to Source)

Maker of highly addictive OxyContin says it will stop incentivizing doctors to push its deadly drugs

prescription-drug-addiction-eating-opioids-e1518776407521

(Natural News) The opioid crisis has reached epidemic proportions in this country, with the number of deaths quadrupling since 2000, and around 115 people dying from overdoses each day. President Trump has declared the opioid crisis a national health emergency, and high schools across the country have started stocking up on the drug Narcan to try to save lives in case of an accidental overdose on school premises.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that when you consider direct healthcare costs, lost productivity, criminal prosecution and addiction treatment, this crisis costs the United States around $78.5 billion annually.

Now, Big Pharma giant Purdue, the  manufacturer of OxyContin, the world’s bestselling opioid drug, has vowed to stop marketing the drug to healthcare professionals.

Several pharmaceutical manufacturers, including Purdue, have admitted to having entire teams of sales people, as well as “front groups” and “key opinion leaders,” pushing the drug as a mainstream option for chronic, long-term pain, even though the drug was designed for cancer patients and others suffering severe pain who only need pain relief for a limited period of time.

As reported by Circa, when the drug was first released in 1995, it was hailed as a breakthrough in the treatment of severe pain, but users quickly learned that they could abuse the drug to get a high:

It worked over 12 hours to maintain a steady level of oxycodone in patients suffering from a wide range of pain ailments. But some users quickly discovered they could get a heroin-like high by crushing the pills and snorting or injecting the entire dose at once. In 2010 Purdue reformulated OxyContin to make it harder to crush and stopped selling the original form of the drug.

The manufacturer did not discontinue making the drug, of course, and went on to pitch it to healthcare professionals as a low-risk wonder drug for the treatment of pain. Purdue also later admitted to minimizing the addiction risk to doctors, who went on to prescribe it for many off-label uses, directly resulting in the crisis the country is now faced with. (Related: Learn more about what caused this crisis and what is being done to cope with it at Opioids.news.)

In the meantime, Purdue has been raking in billions in profits each year.

It is unlikely that the company has altruistic reasons for agreeing to stop lying to doctors about the risks and benefits of OxyContin. It is far more likely that the multiple lawsuits it has been inundated with has led to this change of heart.

While it is certainly better that Purdue is now no longer going to pitch propaganda to the healthcare community and has halved its sales staff to that end, experts believe that other pharmaceutical companies will have to follow suit before any real progress can be made in turning the tide of the opioid crisis.

“It is difficult to promote more cautious prescribing to the medical community because opioid manufacturers promote opioid use,” said Dr. Andrew Kolodny, director of opioid policy research at Brandeis University, and expert adviser in several of the lawsuits pending against Big Pharma.

While Purdue is a major producer of opioids, other big players like Johnson & Johnson and Allergan would have to make the same commitment to stopping the propaganda machine for any real progress to be made. (Related: Didn’t they take an oath not to do harm? Opioids are coming from doctors’ offices, not the ER.)

And while Purdue has promised to make changes in the U.S., it is making no such commitment regarding the international market.

“They are still doing this abroad,” Kolodny noted. “They are following the same playbook that they used in the United States.”

Circa noted that while Purdue Pharma only operates under that name in the United States, it is associated with two other pharmaceutical companies, Mundipharma and Napp, overseas. Purdue has distanced itself from these producers, saying that they operate independently and according to local regulations.

So, no real change of heart, then. They’ve simply turned their attention to the next lucrative market. (Click to Source)

Doctors Often Avoid Flu Shots

doctor

When a Doctor suggest, or even intimidate you and your family, to get a flu shot, have you ever wondered if that Doctor got a flu shot for his or herself? We often fail to realize the benefit in asking this question. The fact is, most of these Doctors and Nurses don’t even want a flu shot for themselves, yet have no issue pushing the flu shot to you and yours. Most hospitals don’t require Doctors and Nurses to get a flu shot. The hospitals typically just suggest it. But hospitals are now moving to push for mandatory flu shots.

According to Benefits Pro.

…in a new paper published in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology, a medical journal.

When the survey was conducted, just under 43 percent of the infection preventionists at 386 hospitals said that their hospital currently required flu shots for staff. However, an additional 10 percent said their hospital would begin to require the shot for the next flu season. That means it is likely that, two years later, a majority of hospitals are making their doctors, nurses and administrative employees get the vaccines that they keep telling patients they need to get.

So if “infection preventionists” don’t want the shot, why would they want you to have it? In my opinion, any Doctor pushing a flu vaccine should be made to take one themselves. And if they choose not to take one, they should be forced to wear something which identifies them as someone who declined the shot. The simple fact is, many Doctors know that flu shots are dangerous and useless in preventing the flu, but they succumb to the pharmaceutical company line. (Click to Site)
