I hope that the DA's office is able to examine more than just the insurance fraud stuff.  They seized all of their files and computers and are going to find a LOT more than they bargained for.  Detailed reports to OSA, ABLE Int and NN Int on things, evidence of staff and student illegal activities (drug use and sexual impropriety), plots against people, other forms of fraud and SO much more.

Well, I believe they can only seize and use the records according to the search warrant purposes, so what they asked for and why remains to be seen.

On behalf of the numerous clients I represent who have been defrauded by Narconon's bogus drug rehab scam I would like to applaud the Georgia criminal authorities for the actions they took today.  I sincerely hope that this spells the end of this dangerous and deceptive operation. I only wish it had come sooner so that those who have been harmed by Narconon could have avoided that fate.  Now I hope the regulatory authorities do their job as well as the District Attorney and the Insurance Commissioner have done theirs and revoke Narconon's license.

Indeed Luke.  I hope the DA's office will be able (or have help) to understand the gravity of what they have.

Oh, what a perfect end to this week!

Good to see Jeff's name coming up again, too.   8)

Maybe Steve needs to have a conversation with Barbara Marschalk, before getting too deeply involved in this one.   ;)

I dont see what all the fuss is about, they were in full compliance with the standard policies and procedures of the insurance industry.  They did nothing wrong, Mary and the other staff said so.  I swear. 

I would lend them money but.....I am a suppressive now and we dont do things like that.

Search warrants executed at Narconon drug rehab clinic - Atlanta Journal Constitution
26 April 2013, 7:02 pm
By Christian Boone

Search warrants were executed Friday by the Gwinnett County district attorney’s office investigating suspected insurance fraud by a Norcross drug rehabilitation clinic that recently had its license revoked by the state.

As first reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Channel 2 Action News and WSB Radio, Narconon of Georgia allegedly billed a patient’s insurer $166,275 for doctor visits that never occurred and treatment that was never provided.

Acting on that information, state Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens launched his own probe, teaming up with Gwinnett District Attorney Danny Porter to obtain the warrants.

“We are actively and vigorously pursing an investigation,” Porter said.

The Church of Scientology-affiliated clinic has denied any wrongdoing, saying it follows standard billing procedures for rehabilitation facilities.

Investigators say they were surprised by the volumes of potential evidence retrieved from Narconon, which was stripped of its license in December following a decade’s worth of complaints that it was illegally operating a residential facility. Narconon is appealing the state Department of Community Health’s ruling

“We have a lot of information we’re seizing at this point” — so much, in fact, that a U-Haul was brought in to accommodate all the laptops, hard drives, billing records and other paperwork secured from Narconon’s offices off Peachtree Parkway, said Sherry Mowell, director of fraud investigation for the insurance commissioner. The seizure lasted most of the day.

 I wonder what will become of those poor individuals whom currently have placed their hopes of recovery in the hands of narCONon of Georgia?

 Does this raid open the door for the DCH to actually step in and close the facilities doors until the investigations have concluded?

 Would that not be in the interest of public safety?
