    Default New Claim of Insurance Fraud by Narconon Georgia.

    New Claim of Insurance Fraud by Narconon Georgia - whatever next?

    http://www.wsbradio.com/news/news/sp...e-fraud/nT9nT/


    By Pete Combs

    Already facing a wrongful death and civil conspiracy lawsuit in the 2008 overdose of a patient and battling revocation of its license by state regulators, Narconon of Georgia is now being investigated because of allegations of insurance fraud.

    In a joint investigative enterprise with Channel 2 Action news and the AJC, News-Talk WSB has uncovered allegations that the Scientology-based drug and alcohol rehab program headquartered in Norcross is accused of trying to bill United Health Care $166,000 for treating 19-year old Emily Morton of Rome, Ga.

    Emily’s mother, Mary, wrote a $15,000 check – payment up front and in full – to enroll her daughter in the Narconon program in March, 2012. Her family also signed an agreement with Narconon that stated the complete cost of treatment was $15,000 .
    In January 2013 CoS claimed to have more than 11,000 centres in 167 nations.
    From their own websites, they had 465 'churches' in 60 countries.

    Heh - Emily got a 40% discount off the "normal" bilking rate - I bet her family purchased a "CORNERSTONE" for Sooper Power!

    Now you can count on the government getting involved in this - HEALTH CARE FRAUD~! Hip Hip Hooray!!

    2013 - the year the cult died!

    I think the spiral down is going to go a bit faster this year folks! The hits just keep on coming!

    Scientology ~ the "science" of FRAUD!

    It seems that these officials know who they are dealing with ie "the most ethical group on the planet"

    THE STATE INSURANCE COMMISSIONER INVESTIGATES
     “Sounds like a problem to me,” said Georgia Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens when he learned of Emily Morton’s story. Hudgens said he has opened an investigation into Narconon of Georgia so that “we can determine whether or not insurance fraud has taken place.”
     
     Hudgens said he has assigned a team of investigators under the supervision of Fraud Division Chief Drew Lane to look into allegations of wrongdoing on the part of Narconon of Georgia.
     
    “Hopefully we can get there before the shredder starts running,” Hudgens said. But even if Narconon, which has been sanctioned in the wrongful death suit brought by survivors of former patient Patrick Desmond (www.wsbradio.com/s/narconon) for destroying and hiding vital evidence, does not produce records sought by Hudgens’ investigators, there are other methods of seeking that information. For instance, Hudgens said, investigators can issue a call for data to insurance companies serving Georgia, asking for information about any claims paid to Narconon.
     
    “We have teeth,” Hudgens said. “We have been successful in getting fraud prosecuted.”

    The main key to free a person from this cult is compassion. This is true of all cults, but it is especially true of Scientology, where, in the upper echelons, there isn't even any pretense of compassion. Showing compassion just might be the key to breaking through the person's cult identity and reaching the real person.

    Great news broadcast!

    The cults religious cloaking devices aren't going to be able to protect them against this.
