The Petition can be found here. Or better yet, sign the petition and call her at 617-727-6200. The evidence that Physician Health Services, Inc. (PHS) is committing crimes has been free-floating for the past two years. It has been posted on Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, blogged, faxed, and phoned. The response? Absolute silence.
The procedural, ethical and criminal violations are clear and many. The incontrovertible evidence has been directly delivered to individuals who can and should address this but for some reason do not. This is not a matter of opinion folks but a matter of fact. Time and time again we hear of egregious misconduct hidden for decades because of cognitive dissonance and blinkered apathy.
What evidentiary standard is required for action? Over the past three years and under a lot of duress I have obtained indefensible documentary prima facie proof of crimes committed by individuals that should elicit immediate action but produced nothing but silence.
The crimes are many and they are of significance. Accountability necessitates both the provision of information and justification for one’s actions. This group has effectively blocked both of these. With much effort and under threat I have obtained proof of criminal activity with the expectation that the provision of this information would result in those who should and could do something about it would. They have not.
The documentary evidence of crimes is self-evident. It is indefensible. It is inexcusable that criminal activity is taking place within the walls of the Massachusetts Medical Society. The fact that PHS is unregulated and without any meaningful accountability is irrelevant. They are engaging in criminal activity within the walls of an institution whose very foundation is the antithesis of this groups actions and it must be addressed. Either support what the documents show or do something about it.
So please sign this petition and call Massachusetts State Auditor Suzanne Bump at 617-727-6200
Institutional injustice just like that being committed by Luis Sanchez, Linda Bresnahan and the corrupt MRO Wayne Gavryck is killing doctors across the country. They need to be held accountable. Help me hold them accountable.
You do not need to be from Massachusetts to sign this petition. It is to raise public awareness–hopefully enough to elicit more exposure of this problem to prompt audits not only in Massachusetts but in other states as was recently done in North Carolina. The N.C. state auditor conducted an investigation and found poor oversight of the state PHP by both the state Medical Society and the state Medical Board, a lack of due process for physician’s who disputed the PHP’s evaluations and requirements, and multiple instances of potential conflicts-of-interest.
Dr. J. Wesley Boyd, who was previously an Associate Director at Physician Health Services, inc., the Massachusetts PHP is recommending that state government agencies audit their PHPs and his own state won’t even do it! This is despite clear evidence that the Massachusetts PHP, Physician Health Services, Inc. is engaging in forensic fraud, ethical misconduct, HIPAA violations and crimes that Deb Stoller of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine Physician Health and Compliance Unit has been aware of and is most likely complicit in. The Massachusetts State Auditor, Suzanne Bump, has refused to conduct an investigation. Why is this? I’d like to know why?
As Boyd states in his Psychology Today blog:
“After a group of North Carolina physicians complained about their state PHP to the state auditor, the auditor conducted an investigation (link is external)and found poor oversight of the PHP by both the state medical society and the board of medicine, a lack of due process for physicians who disputed the PHP’s evaluations and/or recommendations, and multiple instances of potential conflicts of interest.
The national federation of PHPs ought to implement national standards for its members and commence routine audits of its members. Other state governmental agencies ought to audit their PHPs as well, to ensure that their vast power is wielded judiciously and with oversight.”
The Massachusetts PHP is much worse. The Massachusetts PHP is engaging in unconscionable conduct including forensic fraud and self-evident criminal activity that is indefensible from within the walls of the Massachusetts Medical Society. Most are not aware of this. They need to be. This rigged game is a national problem and how the racket works in Massachusetts can be seen here.
Please help me expose this and put a stop to it! Please Sign Petition and Call (617-727-6200) MA State Auditor Suzanne Bump to Demand Audit of Corrupt Physician Health Services and the MA BORM Physician Health and Compliance Unit.
The corruption is undeniable and the actions are indefensible, unethical and unconscionable. Please help me shine a light on these criminals. Corruption needs to be acknowledged and investigated. Ignoring it and hoping it might go away seldom works.
The Massachusetts Auditor should either be able to defend the actions of PHS and the BORM Physician Health and Compliance Unit or investigate. It is as simple as that.
