Dialysis Medical Provider Up On Criminal Fraud Charges, GranuFlo Causing Immediate Heart Attacks

Written by Criminal Defense Lawyer. Posted in Federal Crimes Blog

Medical providers must be held liable for their products that harm the consumer.  They must also be held liabel for government fraud. The products GranuFlo and Naturalyte manufactured by Fresenius has been causing cardiac arrest in Dialysis patients and it appears Fresenius Clinics knew of the potential risk and continued the fraud. This is just one of the fraud practices perpetuated by Fresenius. See the article below.

Fresenius Dialysis Provider Will  Pay $486 Million to Settle Criminal and Civil Fraud  Charges

By MILT FREUDENHEIM
Published: January 20, 2000

 

Fresenius Medical Care A.G., the nation's largest provider of kidney dialysis services, said yesterday that it would pay $486 million to settle federal civil and criminal fraud charges involving Medicare and other government programs.

 

Government officials said both the civil settlement of $385 million and the $101 million in criminal fines were the largest in a five-year antifraud campaign involving blood-testing laboratories and other heath care companies.

The campaign has returned more than $2 billion to the Medicare Trust Fund since 1995, said June Gibbs Brown, inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services. The biggest previous settlements included $379 million from National Medical Enterprises, a hospital chain; $325 million from a laboratory unit of SmithKline Beecham, and $255 million from First American Health Care, a laboratory business based in Georgia.

Fresenius, based in Bad Homburg, Germany, provides blood cleansing services for more than 60,000 Americans with kidney problems. The charges involved disputed payments by government programs, not the quality of patient care.

 

 

Ben Lipps, an American who is chief executive of Fresenius, said the company was pleased to turn the page on the disputes with the Justice Department, Medicare and state Medicaid programs and the Inspector General's office. Fresenius is still in discussions about payments with its commercial insurance companies, he said.

 

In the settlement, the company agreed to plead guilty to criminal conspiracy charges involving three units: LifeChem Inc. laboratories, NMC Homecare Inc. and NMC Medical Products Inc.

The three units were accused of conspiring to defraud government payers by charging for disputed intravenous feeding of dialysis patients, charging for blood tests deemed unnecessary and violating anti-kickback laws by providing payments, discounts, yacht trips and bear-hunting excursions in Alaska to attract potential customers for the LifeChem blood-testing business.

The government complaint said the home care unit falsely attributed patients' weight loss to kidney-related problems. In one case, it said, weight loss resulting from the amputation of a patient's leg was misattributed.

Three former Fresenius officials have been indicted in federal district court in Boston in the investigation. They are K. Glenn Shaw, former president; Louis Verde, a former manager of the products unit, and Eileen B. Aird, former president of LifeChem.

Margaret S. Telgheder, a former executive of the medical products and lab units, pleaded guilty to Medicare fraud charges last June. David Charles Weber, a former vice president in medical products, pleaded guilty to kickback charges in December 1998. They have not been sentenced.

Fresenius ''inherited'' the investigation, Mr. Lipps said, when it bought National Medical Care from W. R. Grace & Company in 1996 for $4.4 billion. Mark W. Pearlstein, first assistant United States attorney in Boston, said Fresenius had cooperated with the investigators.

The company, which had about $3.6 billion in 1999 revenues, has sold the home care unit. It closed the LifeChem and NMC Medical Products units under the agreement and transferred their functions to the company's Spectra laboratories unit and the German parent's own products lines.

Nine people who filed whistle-blower lawsuits linked to the investigation will receive $65.8 million of the civil settlement. They include a former home care unit employee in Mexico, Mo., and a pharmacy in Key West, Fla., that competed with National Medical Care.

Under the False Claims Act, whistle-blowers and their lawyers can share up to 30 percent of settlements in federal investigations linked to their charges, said Judy Holz, a spokeswoman for the Inspector General's office.

Ms. Gibbs said Fresenius had agreed to install a stringent corporate integrity program, including special audits and training over eight years to prevent recurrences. Fresenius hired John Markus, a former regulations compliance executive at Oxford Health Plans, to head the new integrity program.

Fresenius took a pretax charge against earnings of $590 million for the expected settlement.

FDA MD Arrested, Criminal Lawyers Take Notice

Personal Troubles for FDA’s Dr. Maisel
Aug 7th, 2012 | By Jane Akre | Category: FDA

Dr. William Maisel, Fox TV

August 7, 2012 ~ This item  apparently bypassed the desk of MDND. Last month, Deputy Director of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health, Dr. William Maisel, was reportedly arrested in a prostitution sting operation in Maryland, according to MassDevice (here).

According to the case report here , Dr. Maisel, 46,  was arrested on Friday, July 13 after allegedly offering a plain-clothes female police officer money for sex. He is facing four charges of prostitution solicitation and one charge of disorderly conduct. His case is set for trial September 20 in Ellicott City, Maryland.

MyFoxDC-TV reported ten men were arrested in Howard County during a reverse prostitution sting. This was the second operation of the year by Howard County and was conducted along the U.S. 1 corridor in Laurel.

FDA co-workers greeted the news with a mixture of shock and sadness, reports Pharmalot (here). There are 30 comments on Pharmalot of a mixed nature.

Dr. Maisel is a prominent cardiologist who joined the FDA in August 2010. Dr. Maisel has been mindful of the delicate balance within the agency between the public and corporate interest. In testimony he has said device makers share some of the blame for a slow review process:

    “Industry also shares a responsibility for the success of the review process and safety of medical devices. Data show that some companies submit poor quality applications, ask to meet with us but then ignore our feedback, or conduct poor quality clinical studies. This leads to unnecessary delays, wastes time and money for both industry and FDA, and exposes patients to unnecessary risks.”

April 13, 2011 he spoke about A Delicate Balance: FDA and the Reform of the Medical Device Approval Process (here).

Dr. Maisel is named in a federal lawsuit filed by whistleblowers against the FDA along with chief Margaret Hamburg, Jeffrey Shuren and Kathleen Sebelius, of HHS, accusing them of retaliation and violating the FDA employees’ rights to free speech and protection from search and seizures of personal email.  Background story is here.

The FDA issued a statement to MyFoxDC.com saying this is a personal matter and not related to Dr. Maisel’s work at the FDA.
