Bankruptcy and Acquisitions
« on: February 15, 2015, 08:40:16 PM »
So, I was trying to track down the history of my behavioral health center, and I realized that they went bankrupt, got bought out, and were renamed something almost identical to their original name, retaining original staff, and continuing seamlessly in their operations.

Research indicates that a LOT of these places have done that, sometimes, just dropping the initials after their names, sometimes adding initials. I was in a program that was being investigated for insurance fraud on a mass scale, as well as for patient abuse.

They changed their names and went bankrupt, so the investigation was dropped.

At this point what can even be done to compensate the people who suffered long term damage from abuse at these facilities? Anything?

Do you know what insurance companies were being defrauded? Nothing wakes them up like "you might get your money back if you follow this trail".

I don't know. 'seems like they took everything when I was there. The brown binders meant you were covered for a year and hoing to stay there that long. I had a blue one. Everyone told me "two months" as soon as I got there, and they were right. They color coded the folders to match your coverage, and coverage dictated the time frame.

Did you go to RMA in Bonners Ferry Idaho?

No, did they do that there? It may have been a Charter thing. I read a CBS expose about Charter facilities, and an employee of eighteen years was almost fired gor turning away a patient who had insurance. The patient did not appear in need of inpatient treatment, but the policy was to take whatever the insurance covered, regardless of medical neccessity or lack thereof. Part of the investigation was for defrauding the govt. by padding insurance claims (for govt. funded patients) and part was for patient abuse.
