Aetna Health claim denial/ payment reduction

I would like to alert readers regarding Aetna PPO denial of claims and reimbursement decrease practices. In 2010, Aetna PPO Health Insurance tried the following to eliminate/ reduce claims from my husband's providers:-

1) Arbitrarily decided that he had other primary insurance and denied all claims after a date chosen by them.

2) Arbitrarily applied a 75% discount to bills previously paid in full. It seems that a discount program was erroneously applied to the provider. The reduction came to light when the provider billed us for the difference.

Both of these were eventually resolved but only after hours and weeks of phone calls.

It appears as if these are just schemes to reduce payment to people who are already overwhelmed by medical problems and therefore have less bandwidth to fight the denials and reductions.

Network Fraud

Since i was no longer able to afford COBRA Ins. with my ex employer i searched for new and less expensive i thought were good rated networks. They call your home and sell you all the things you think are going to cover you just like a real insurance company would. Beware my friends, these are just the names of the ones i dealt with and turned out to not pay for almost anything they tell you when you call them that it is not covered . Names: HEALTH ESSENTIAL AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE SOLUTIONS is under investigation, PRIME LIBERTY, NBLA MULTI PLAN, these are the ones i dealt with believe me when i tell you if you look them up with the Better Business Bureau they will have a rating of A or better do not fall into the same trap now i have lots of bills and no way to pay them. Their websites look lagite but buyer beware, you get what you pay for cheap monthly rates and no services.

incompetent doctor Rocco Gerace

It may sound like a BREAKING NEWS to all of you that I survived Dr. Rocco Gerace’s treatment. One thing surprises me a lot that how can he be referred as a well-known specialist in Emergency Medicine when he is completely incompetent to treat his patients properly and instead conducts wrong treatment ?

Re: Passages Malibu Scam

IveBeentaken, why would you fly to a place to spend $80,000 and then complain about the airfare? Your better off doing what I did and research passages malibu staff. In fact, a couple of their therapists used to work for facilities that only charged $6,000-$10,000 per month just a short time ago and now they are working for Passages that charges $80,000 plus a month. The question, is it worth paying that $80,000 plus for essentially the same counseling you get at a treatment facility that costs $6,000-$10,000 a month? If you want a place to just dry out and be on vacation for a month, then Passages is it. As long as you have the money why not? and when you relapse just come back and dry out again and again. If you flew all the way to Passages for a tour without reading all their horrible reviews online then you should be taken!

Says he is a non for profit - lie
he was an actor and has the ability to charasmatically deliver a fine thread of bogus "health" advice in a charasmatic manner.
he has sucked in thousands of people to give to his fake charity. he has set up the front of a not for profit to pay for his several lawsuits. all of his techniques are caving in and he wants people to pay for them!
he has ruthlessly pushed his business partners out of the business.
he is making so many people sick with his bogus theories! naturopaths, hospitals and such are catching these people all over sydney.
he is so aggressive and intimidating that people will not confront him or challenge him.
people need to know what kind of person they are supporting when they spend money at his shop or his fruit and veg shop nex door
besides he is a hater and a gerk.
the king squiril should go down

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, so please forgive me if it's not.

I'm looking to buy some medicine online and I'm thinking of buying from Has anyone ever ordered from there? This will be my first time buying from online, and I don't want to get some fake medicine, chalk tablets, or nothing to show up at all.

If anyone knows about this site, or can recommend a good site that you have personally used before, then I would really appreciate the help.

Top Docs Scam - Don't get taken

Top Docs is used all over the internet and in magazines from coast to coast. The owners want us to believe that Top Docs represents the best doctors. The real truth is it is nothing more than a doctor paying to get into the magazine or on the website. I used a doctor from the Top Docs magazine. It took me thousands of dollars and months of treatments to fix what this Top Doc did to me. Buyers beware of Top Docs.

Re: Medicaid Pros, LLC, Nutley, NJ

I'm sorry you didn't have a good experience with Medicaid Pros. My mom used them to get on medicaid, and we thought Philomena Servodio was wonderful. She did a lot of legwork for us, told us what we should expect, and in the end, it was all exactly what she said it would be. We were happy with the service all in all.

Hemp oil A supressed cancer cure

Narration HERE

Opening text: The following presentation of “Run from the
Cure – The Rick Simpson Story” was produced for educational
purposes utilizing the FAIR USE AGREEMENT. THIS VIDEO IS
CERTIFIED THC & YouTube logo
For over a century, big business and pharmaceutical
companies worldwide have withheld the cure for cancer and
countless other medical conditions all in the interest of
personal profit. Rick Simpson rediscovered the cure for
cancer and shared it with as many people as he could free
of charge.

Directed by Christian Laurette
Edited by Christian Laurette

When people have to suffer because of money or people
making money or whatever, that is just not right.

The doctor can’t cure ya, and you wanna get cured, you’re
gonna try anything ain’t ya? I was willin’ to give it a
shot yeah. Heck I’d give it 2 shots.

Change your life! Come and take some real medicine,
medicine that is safe and medicine that works for a change.

Produced by Rick Simpson & Christian Laurette

My name is Rick Simpson; I live at 344 Little Forks Road
just outside of Macan, Nova Scotia. I'm here to tell you
about the most medicinal plant known to man, Hemp! Oils
made from the Hemp plant are the most medicinally active
substances ever found in nature and up until about 85 years
“Run from the Cure-the Rick Simpson story” Page 2 of 24
ago, hemp medicines were widely used all over the world
many drug companies in the 1800’s and early 1900’s produced
medicines for decades. Hemp is a plant, and therefore
cannot be patented. To drug companies, no patent means no
money. Hence, no interest in producing this drug. When you
examine bud from the hemp plant, you can see that it is
covered in resin. This resin makes the bud appear to be
covered in frost. This resin is the medicine. When
collected and processed properly the resulting oil is an
effective cure or control for practically any disease known
to man even cancer. We have supplied this oil to dozens of
people with cancer. Even people, who were diagnosed with
terminal cancer by our medical system, now have a clean
bill of health after treatment with hemp medicine. When
working with this medicine, medical miracles are a common

EXHIBIT: Mr. Edward Dwyer Lung Cancer Survivor pictured
seated in the passenger seat of an automobile.

This oil has brought many people right off their deathbeds.
Due to the restrictions put in place by our government,
against this medicine, we feel it is our duty to inform the
public how they can make their own. In reality this
medicine should be produced on a grand scale in a
controlled environment using the highest quality starting
material. Producing hemp medicine in this manner would
stabilize the potency of this medication plus any danger
associated with this medicines production could be
eliminated. High potency hemp oil can be produced right in
your own home or workshop. Later in this video we will show
you how this can be accomplished observing simple rules of
safety. We do not approve of or condone this method, due to
the safety issues involved, and we bear no responsibility
if this information is misused. If you or someone you care
about has a life threatening medical condition that our
medical system has failed to help, there is a very good
chance that hemp oil is the answer to your problems. There
are three different ways to use the oil as a medication;
you can ingest it, you can vaporize it, or you can use it
topically, but for internal diseases like cancer, lung
cancer that type of thing uh, the internal treatment works

Well I’ve had four open heart surgeries and probably five
“Run from the Cure-the Rick Simpson story” Page 3 of 24
pacemakers. I've been through the mill as far as medical
stuff goes, and I started taking this because my father was
taking it for his cancer which he doesn’t have anymore this
came along it worked perfect it lets me do a days work or
as much as I can safely let’s face it after four open
hearts you are still limited to what you can do but I go
all day, wife and I four wheeler all over the place it
virtually gave me my life back without the pain.

I have suffered from major depression since age 27, I
suffer from anxiety attacks, I’ve also had three back
injuries with constant aching in my back and had that for
years and when I took this medicine it seemed to take the
aching from my back it seems to cut down my panic attacks
and as late as I keep going on seems to get better and
better my depression and anxiety attacks.

I had a huge mole on my shoulder, it was black and had a
crusty, it wasn’t a natural mole and I had been sort of
concerned about it. So actually knowing from Rick
mentioning that it cured skin cancer and removed stuff like
that, I decided to put a little oil on my mole and see if
it works. So I put a little band-aid over it, I only
applied it for like three days and then another four, then
in 2 weeks it was completely gone.

I had skin cancer, melanoma cancer they told me, I was
treated time after time and I was burnt several times, I
call it burnt, they had another name for it. But anyway
they burnt me several times and uh it wasn’t doing no good,
all the salve they gave me, I put it on and put it on. So I
ran across this fellow they call Ricky Simpson, you see my
face, it’s all wrinkled up, but there’s no big holes in it.

I use hemp oil for a number of conditions migraine
headaches, cist on my ovary, arthritis, bad, bad skin
allergies, snoring, upset stomach, diarrhea bad, something
wrong with my bowels, and it helped with every condition I

I had 2 months to live, I was cashing in, I didn’t care
then, I got a hold of Rick and Rick explained how this
“Run from the Cure-the Rick Simpson story” Page 4 of 24
stuff works, the chemo and the radiation just kills
everything inside you. It doesn’t give you a chance to
live, and then when I look at my hemp oil, that’s why I’m
setting here today telling you that hemp oil does work!

Skin conditions. Cancer, diabetes, infections glaucoma,
arthritis, chronic pain, burns, ulcers, warts and moles,
for any condition involving mutating cells migraine
headaches, asthma, insomnia, anxiety and depression, it
works to regulate your weight, it heals scar tissue, it
rejuvenates vital organs, in fact I would like someone to
show me what it can't heal!

When we began Rick asked me to find out if there was any
detrimental effects to hemp oil, as we searched we couldn't
find any, and research kept coming back with all the good
aspects of the medicine and as we kept looking and we ran
into Dr. Guzman in Spain who's done research since 1999 in
the hemp oil, the international cannabinoid research
society has been researching it for 17 years. They have
research papers and various researchers and research
organizations including Health Canada, but in that research
we haven't been able to find anything that appears
detrimental, everything is beneficial from the oil.
Cannabis and hemp traditionally have been used to treat
alcoholics and recovering drug addicts, and that hasn't
changed over the years they are still using it today in
some cases but most medical facilities don't recognize it.
I believe they don't recognize the product because of the
disinformation they've been handed over the years; it's
touted as an illicit drug, rather than a medicine.

Re: Medicaid Pros, LLC, Nutley, NJ

Hi this is Philomena Servodio from Medicaid Pros responding to you Mary because I can not believe you would make such an accusation. First of all, I do not even know who you are or what you are talking about. If you had a complaint then you should of handled it by talking it over with me. I pride myself in what I do and have done so much pro bono work that its truly insulting to have you say that I am out for the money. In terms of lawsuit, you should be careful about character defermation and being sued yourself.

Oasis of Hope

If you’re considering Oasis of Hope hospital, my advice to you is too go at your own risk.
My brother, who was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, went there with high hopes and good spirits.
While there he encountered a language barrier problem and a delayed response for pain medication which was finally administered after he paid an extra charge.
He arrived home, with no particular instructions as to his care- We admitted him because of his condition the next day to our hospital in California and as I’ve stated before, he died 4 days later.
After a certified letter, 3 Emails, and numerous phone calls to Oasis, I have received no response at all to my questions, not even a condolence card or letter.
Please note that the answer to my brother’s original inquires about Oasis were answered within 24 hours with a phone call from the staff.
Since then—Nothing!!
Ultimately, it seems that money takes precedence over the care and responsibility due the patients at Oasis.
I feel that Dr. Contreras and his staff have acted in a very unprofessional manner and lack the common courtesy which should be expected from a Doctor and his staff!

The following certified letter was sent to Dr. Contreras following the death of my brother three days after returning from Oasis Hospital.
In the following months many phone calls to the doctor’s assistants took place. After being assured that his case was being evaluated, we still have received no response from either him or my brother’s doctors.
Please read this letter before making any decision to seek treatment at Oasis of Hope Hospital.

Dr. Contreras,

I’m writing on behalf of my brother Michael Beatty who was a patient at your hospital from July 26th thru Aug.5th. His daughter Shawn Menezes accompanied him as his companion.
He was admitted with Stage 4 Lung Cancer which had spread to several areas of his body. He tried to complete your program, but was unable to swallow most of the nutraceuticals during his last week—He had such hope and tried so hard!
He came home on Aug.5th and on Aug.6th we rushed him to the Emergency Ward at St.Agnes Hospital in Fresno, Ca.
He was immediately diagnosed with Pneumonia (food in his lungs) and we were told that there was little to no hope. He died on Aug.10th, having gained consciousness for only one day leading up to that time.
During his stay at Oasis his first several days went OK, but by the second week things began to go very wrong. He couldn’t eat or swallow well, had a lot of pain and suffered from both constipation and trouble urinating.
This occurred over the weekend and very little was done except to implant a Catheter and give him water enemas. By Monday his pain was excruciating and his doctor (Dr. Lagos) would not increase his morphine! He was told that only the Pain Specialist could do that.
My brother (Mike) and Shawn asked that some tests be given to see what was wrong (maybe just a simple blockage) before he saw the Pain Specialist.
A Pelvic X-Ray and Cat Scan were performed—these had not yet been done and its now late into the second week of treatment! The results were late in coming, but he was eventually told that it was the Cancer that was causing the pain. Another day passed before the Pain Specialist could see him and then finally more morphine was given!
Was this suffering and subsequent delay necessary?
During this time there was also a language barrier problem in trying to relate my brother’s symptoms to both the nurses and Dr. Lagos. Things had to be repeated several times and even then there was a question as to whether Shawn or my brother was really understood. Again, I feel the language barrier was a critical issue!
As all of this was occurring Shawn (his daughter) was still trying to give my brother the nutraceuticals and Dr. Lagos kept encouraging her to do so. She called me several times in tears as he couldn’t eat and could barely swallow!
Why had Dr. Lagos not realized (because of the swallowing problem) that something else was wrong—that perhaps the food was not going down as it should and just maybe was going into his lungs? As far as we know he was not given a Chest X-Ray which might have shown this. If not, isn’t Pneumonia and this type of complication something to watch for in Stage 4 Lung Cancers? Shouldn’t some of these problems have been anticipated?
All and all I don’t feel that my brother Mike was given the kind of care that should have been available in your hospital. He had Stage 4 Cancer and his needs were plainly not addressed. All that seemed to matter was that he got the IRT Therapy and hope that nothing else was to go wrong.
When my brother arrived at Oasis he could walk, was in good spirits and excited about your program.
When I picked him up at the border (11 days later) he could not walk without assistance and was sent home with a catheter still attached! It was obvious to me that he was much worse than when I brought him down. I believe that this was due to some of the complications that happened when he was in your care—lack of diagnosis of Pneumonia, no Chest X-Ray, delay in pain management, and the language barrier. He was in a “stupor” during most of our 8 hour drive home.
Why didn’t Dr. Lagos order that he go directly to a hospital when he arrived home? We even called him (Dr. Lagos) that night and told him that my brother was very sick and only semi-conscious! Dr Lagos just said to keep giving him the nutraceuticals but to reduce them by 1/3. Clearly he did not understand the problem and had not even considered Pneumonia--5 days later my brother died!
Dr. Contreras, I do realize that in dealing with cancer patients, things do not always go as planned. However, I would hope that over the many years that you and your father have treated these patients it would become imperative that these needs be addressed promptly and that needless suffering be avoided.
I do want you to know that I still believe in your program of IRT Therapy-- ie.”Boosting the immunity of one’s own body to fight the cancers.” I would definitely consider coming to Oasis myself if I were in the earlier stages of this terrible disease. However, I would like to see that some of the above issues mentioned, were to be addressed and corrected.
I would hope that some compensation would be sent back to the family as my brother could not complete some of the treatment.
We are also sending back the unopened containers of the nutraceuticals of which the money, we were told would be refunded.
Please let us know that you have received this letter personally—thank you for taking the time to read it. We look forward to your timely response.

Grains, Grains, Grains

After extensive research, I have decided to cut grains entirely from my diet, despite the many years of my life that I paid attention to the food guide pyramid and consumed them religiously. I have never felt better -- and neither have the many others I've conversed with who've done the same. What am I suggesting? That we don't need grains at all? Precisely. Grains entered our diet probably around the time of the Industrial Revolution, when the world population really saw a significant increase. These plants were and are so abundant that they can feed so many of us. However, that does not imply they possess any benefits. Our bodies cannot properly digest grains. Grains also spike insulin production to unnatural levels, much like other refined sugars, possibly contributing to the development of diabetes. Some would contend that they are a necessity because we've been conditioned to think so, arguing that "they're an excellent source of fiber" and "lower cholesterol". The truth is that there are healthier foods available that can do just that and more. Have any of us ever really questioned it, or is it one of those things we assume is natural and good for us because we've been scammed by a governmental food group system into adopting that mindset?

I encourage you to eliminate grains from your diet for at least several weeks. You may be impressed by the results and finding yourself not wanting to go back.
Liar, liar.
