AOL Accuses Dr. Richard Malouf of Gaming The Texas Judicial System

DTM Avatar 140517Everyone remember the Texas dentist, Dr. Richard Malouf, who sued nearly everyone in sight that had the gall to report or offer comment on the “House That Medicaid Built”?  The place got so big he had to purchase the house next door and he installed his own personal waterpark; dubbed here as 6 Flags Over Malouf.


The story won investigative reporter Byron Harris and WFAA a 2013 Edward R. Murror Award:
water-park1Screen-shot-2012-04-21-at-7.00.24-PMWFAA won a 2013 Edward R. Murrow Award for its investigation of Texas Medicaid fraud, including the allegation that Malouf used taxpayer money to build his personal waterpark. Texas law generally prohibits the seizure of one's home, even in the event of wrongdoing, but there is a loophole.
"If that home is purchased with stolen money, or that home is purchased based on money that has been earned by falsehood or deceit, then that home is not protected at all," attorney Jim Moriarity told WFAA.
Malouf sued a long list of folks, including actor Owen Wilson’s mom, who lived next door, for trespassing, invasion of privacy, and defamation which included America Online (AOL) for publishing the story.
Apparently Malouf , and his wife LeAnne find themselves in the 11th hour of trial without legal representation in his defamation suit which continues with AOL, Graham Wood and Candace Evans
AOL is basically calling “bullshit”, saying Richard and Leanne Malouf have a pool of a dozen or more attorney’s across Texas and should not need 4 months to hire another one.
I agree!
This is a must read! Enjoy!

PS. That is not the only system Mr. and Mrs. Richard Malouf gamed.  Just saying.

Medicaid Fraud Penalties Are Unbalanced (that was the nicest word I could use)

Here is the perfect example of how the 1% stay there, and the %99 stay put as well.  Being the 1% has a whole lot of perks!

Quanah, Texas Dentist Sentenced

A Quanah dentist pleaded guilty Wednesday, March 28, to Medicaid Fraud. Dr.

Jay Parmer was sentenced to 10 years probation. He was ordered to pay a fine of $5,000 to Hardeman County, and ordered to make restitution in an amount of $158,000 to the State of Texas Medicaid program.

Law enforcement launched an investigation into Dr. Parmer billing practices in 2009. At the time, Parmer filed a complaint against his former office manager for theft.

During that investigation, she told police Parmer fraudulently billed for work he had not actually completed. On July 20, 2010, Parmer's former office manager pleaded guilty to the thefts.

The Texas Department of Public Safety executed a search warrant in August 2009 on Parmer's office in Quanah. DPS seized patient records and computers used for billing purposes.

Parmer operated offices in Quanah and Vernon, Texas.

Just two days prior, Dr. Richard Malouf who has “allegedly” stole hundreds of millions paid the government $1.2 million dollars to leave him alone.

Dentist settles fraud case, pays $1.2 million, takes CIA

In case you're wondering why OIG just entered a Corporate Integrity Agreement with the All Smiles Dental Center in Texas, here's a recap of the Medicaid fraud case:

All Smiles was a success story, and its founder Richard Malouf was rich; his $10 million French-style chateau put him on D magazine's "100 Most Expensive Homes in Dallas" list. Life was good -- you can watch a video of Malouf backup-dancing for a Michael Jackson impersonator at the All Smiles Christmas party here.

But the feds claimed Malouf got rich in part through Medicaid fraud. The Texas Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU) and the FBI pursued charges that Malouf "caused 'unbundled' and other improper claims to be submitted to the Texas Medicaid program for orthodontic-related items and services between 2004 and 2007."

Back in 2010, Malouf repaid $46,000 in claims to Texas Medicaid and agreed to an 18-month Medicaid claims moratorium.

Last week, Malouf settled the legal case. He admits no wrongdoing but will pay a whopping $1.2 million settlement fee to Texas and the U.S.

The CIA requires All Smiles to put in a Compliance Officer and do training, special claims reviews, etc.

But Malouf won't have to worry about any of that: He sold the company last year. And we suspect he's still pretty rich.

Two family homes; each profit from taxpayer dollars-Medicaid.

When it comes to discussion of these illegal dental mills, I get so dang sick of all the remarks about “Medicaid moms” and blaming them for the pure existence of these disgusting places.

I have a question for you.

Which one of these homes leave the worst taste in your mouth?  They both live off your tax dollar.

North Carolina is finally getting it when it comes to these fake practice management companies, who are really corporations, that own and operate clinics. Essentially practicing dentistry without a license!

However, Catherine Hughes from the Wealthy Dentist does not!

Dentists Beware: The Government May Want To Tell You How To Manage Your Practice
The North Carolina Senate recently upheld Senate Bill 655, which would require the North Carolina Board of Dental Examiners to examine all business contracts entered into by dental practices in their state.

No other state in the union has implemented such restrictions on dental practice management, or sought such inclusive authority over how dentists manage their business.

Talk about the far-reaching arm of the government!

I am amused at Ms. Hughes last state, about the far-reaching arm of the Malouf 10711-Strait-Lane1government!  I could blow her friggin mind about the far reaches of the Hedge Funds arms stealing tax payer dollars, causing health care costs to skyrocket!  All so the “wealthy dentist” can live like this:

Value: $14 Million Dollars!

Of course that is only his “first” home.
