Re: Monthly Felony Fraud Certification
Dear Dr. Bogrov:
There is evidence that I committed a felony against the government of the United States on September 2, 2016. There is evidence that I am engaged in a long-term scheme to defraud the federal government of up to a half million dollars in U.S. Social Security Disability benefits and Medicare benefits. These issues are discussed in detail in the enclosed Petition to the FBI.
I receive twice per week out-patient psychotherapy from [redacted] at the Psychiatric Institute of Washington (PIW). There are psychological test results showing that I do not suffer from any diagnosable mental illness. Mr. [redacted] has referred to me as a “professional patient.” PIW’s billing of Medicare and D.C. Medicaid for reimbursement may constitute Medicare fraud or abuse.
On July 28, 2016 the D.C. Superior Court (Judge Judith A. Smith) ordered (without benefit of an evidentiary hearing) that I receive regular mental health treatment until July 27, 2017 — regardless of medical necessity. In view of the fact that there is persuasive evidence that I do not suffer from any diagnosable mental illness, one might justifiably say that I have been court-ordered to defraud the Medicare Program. 1/
I want to assure PIW that I will cooperate fully in any criminal investigation that the FBI undertakes regarding these issues.
1/ I have been diagnosed since 1992 with various psychiatric disorders by my treating psychiatrists. Psychological testing has failed to confirm these diagnoses. In October 1991 my former employer, the firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld (Dennis M. Race, Esq.) diagnosed me with paranoid mental illness — in cooperation with a practicing psychiatrist who did not examine me personally — and determined that I was disabled. Said disability determination was apparently fraudulent and made with the intent to avoid the legal consequences of an unlawful job termination. I believe the subsequent psychiatric diagnoses were a direct result of Akin Gump’s fraudulent disability determination in 1991 and that these subsequent psychiatric diagnoses constitute the fruit of the poisonous tree. Indeed, the Superior Court’s unwitting participation in Medicare fraud may be considered the fruit of Akin Gump’s poisonous tree.
