Michigan: Indian-American Sentenced to Twelve Years in the Slammer for Stealing $1 Million from Us

Rathod MichiganBabubhai Bhurabhai Rathod — a New American who brought cultural diversity and an entrepreneurial spirit to Michigan!

And, one of the most stunning things about this case, where Rathod has been sentenced to twelve years, is that he had already served prison time for the same theft from a similar Medicare and Medicaid fraud scheme.

The Judge on sentencing him this time said this,

Judge Neff described Rathod as both “a man for whom the truth is a stranger” and a naturalized citizen who has “taken advantage of opportunities available in this country to steal from it.”

Before I get to the Department of Justice press release from Thursday, I want to tell you about his first go-round in prison just a few short years ago.

I reported the news about new American Naji Khlaed Abdelsalam, apparently a millionaire, who was defrauding us, American taxpayers, by ripping off Medicaid for his family of six, here.

Now we have a few more details about the scam.

However, we still don’t know his nationality or immigration status.

There must be a lot more to the story of Alexandria, Louisiana business owner Naji Khlaed Abdelsalam’s activities than we are being told here.

The State Attorney General’s Office has Abdelsalam in custody along with four other Medicaid fraudsters lumped together in a recent press announcement.

But personal information doesn’t seem to fit for him.

Dr. Bassam Awwa, educated in Syria and affiliated with Yale University has settled a claim by the government that he billed Medicare and Medicaid multiple times for the same test at his Connecticut Behavioral Health Associates, a clinic for substance abusers.

The news is here at the US Attorney’s Office Connecticut District.

I was looking to see if a whistleblower was going to get a reward for turning in the ‘new American’ doc under the False Claims Act, but don’t see that mentioned.

The federal government defines Medicaid as follows,

Medicaid provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. Medicaid is administered by states, according to federal requirements. The program is funded jointly by states and the federal government.

And, according to the feds last analysis 65.9 million (‘poor’) people are covered. That is over 20% of the entire US population!  And, if the ‘progressives’ at the ACLU have their way that number will rise.

I’ve been writing about Medicaid (and Medicare) fraud, and this is one more example of the expansion of these fraud-ridden programs as part of the Left’s agenda to move America toward a socialist form of government.  (Don’t miss Leo Hohmann’s call to arms in my previous post.)

Colorado Pharmacist on the Run after Bilking Medicare/Medicaid out of Nearly $8 Million

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office made former pharmacy owner George Sackey one of its featured fugitives of the week.

I did do some digging about Sackey and although nothing about his immigration status and nationality came up, there are many many Sackey’s originating in Ghana.

Here is a bit about Sackey and his “community” pharmacies at LinkedIn,

Free consulting services to the Colorado African population and the general public as a whole.

My goal is to provide as much help as possible to the underprivileged who otherwise may not be as fortunate and blessed as I’m (sic). It is also a way to give back to the community.

My suspicion is that Sackey is a ‘new American’ entrepreneur who has now apparently skipped the country after cutting off his ankle monitor.
