This story well illustrates why health industry under great scrutiny

Obviously, the defendants involved in the below-described criminal crackdown and related fraud allegations rue the investigatory power that targeted them and the accompanying spotlight they are now under.

Legions of health care providers and other industry participants light years away from task force probes or any wrongdoing similarly lament all the harsh and unflattering scrutiny as well, though. It paints their entire occupational realm with a broad brush and unfairly stigmatizes them via guilt by association.

As we note on our website at the proven New York health law firm of Daniels, Porco & Lusardi, the health industry is arguably unrivaled by any other field for the close oversight it routinely faces. We duly state therein that “every legal matter comes with layers of regulatory and compliance issues that must be addressed.”

One reason why is chronicled in recent news reports detailing a just-concluded national sting that resulted in the arrests of more than 600 people for health care fraud. Reportedly, their conduct collectively yielded fraud-linked losses to the American public exceeding $2 billion.

No reasonable person doubts that the overwhelming majority of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, lab technicians, hospital administrators, medical billers and other industry workers are scrupulously honest and go about their important work with absolute integrity. They, too, are disheartened by tales spotlighting illegal behavior linked with things like false billings, inappropriate prescribing, kickbacks and other malfeasance.

At the same time, though, they properly note that some level of wrongdoing exists in every occupational sphere. And they want to see conduct that blemishes their chosen profession eradicated.

It is unquestionable that many millions of health care workers nationally make best-faith efforts routinely to perform their work at the highest level of competence and with absolute regard for patients’ welfare.

It is just a hard reality for them that they must do so while being under a constant regulatory microscope.
