Lacktman Comments on Medicare Fraud Schemes

07 October 2019 National Public Radio News
Partner Nate Lacktman appeared on a segment of NPR’s All things Considered, “Phone Scammers And ‘Teledoctors’ Charged With Preying On Seniors In Fraud Case,” about alleged Medicare scammers using telemedicine and unscrupulous health providers to prescribe unneeded medical equipment to distant patients.

Lacktman, chair of the firm’s national Telemedicine & Digital Health Industry Team, was quick to point out that the telemedicine industry does not regard the fraudsters involved in such schemes as legitimate businesses. “These are actually really sketchy online marketing companies participating in these schemes, who are billing themselves as telemedicine,” he said. “But in fact, they are companies we’ve never heard of.”
