The Macon Telepraoh 12 are charged with submitting $1 billion in fake medical claims Case called biggest medical insurance fraud ever in US The Associated Press LOS ANGELES — A federal indictment charges 12 people with submitting $1 billion in phony medical claims in w hat a federal official Monday called the biggest medical insurance fraud case in US history pie ITScount indictment alleges Soviet immigrants Michael Smushkevich 44 and Ills brother David 41 operated the fraud ring with a mobile diagnostic testing service and clinics throughout Southern California The operation submitted about $1 billion in fraudulent claims to about 1400 California insurance companies and netted more than $50 million in payments the indictment says “I can assure you that this is the largest fraud case of any type ever worked by the inspection service” David Smith head of the Postal Inspection Service in Los Angeles told a news conference The defendants allegedly solicited customers by sending diagnostic testing vans to locations such as health clubs and by a telephone solicitation operation run by Boris I vaskov 41 another Soviet citizen indicted in tire case The defendants promised customers medical extuns and tests for free or at nominal cost In turn patients assigned to tire labs and clinics all rights to insurance payments said US Attorney Louixles G Baird Bills then were submitted falsely claiming that the patients had been ill or injured Baird said Tire defendants used many corporate and fictitious business names and taxpayer identification numbers to mislead the insurance companies tire indictment says When suspicious insurers stopped payments the ring substituted new names and Social Security numbers on claims forms and resubmitted them Senate halts effort to use crime bill Republicans wanted more police officers The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Senate Monday night thwarted an attempt by Republicans to use the bulk of a $33 billion anti-crime bill to put more police officers on the streets By a vote of 49-39 the Senate killed an amendment by Sen Warren Rudman R-NH which would have set aside $22 billion of the $33 billion for a program of direct aid to help states counties cities and towns hire more law enforcement officers Rudman a former New Hampshire attorney general argued that not enough of the money in the omnibus crime bill was going to localities where the crimes are being committed The money would have been disbursed on the basis of a community’s population “Very few Americans feel safe on the streets of America’s cities today” he said “Crime is a national scandal ” Sen Joseph Biden D-Del chairman of the Judiciary Committee and chief sponsor of the omnibus crime bill opposed Rudman’s proposal “There is a correlation” between the number of police officers on the streets and the reduction of crime Biden said “But I believe the senator from New Hampshire takes it to an extreme “Roughly two-thirds of the states are under court orders for prison overcrowding” Biden said “Many dangerous felons are being released early because there’s insufficient prison space What they (local police officers) want is to get these recidivists off the streets” The Senate was in its third week of work on the crime bill and leaders hoped to finish it by week’s end Before the ourth of July recess senators voted 67-32 to require background checks of handgun purchasers within five working days The Bush administration has embraced many provisions of the bill without giving it an outright endorsement About $1 billion of the money in the bill would go for anti-drug abuse programs The rest would be spread among various federal crime-fighting agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Administration llr awW" ""w ' flfej- ’-'I -
