Wow! busy crooked doctor

A Chicago psychiatrist received illegal kickbacks from pharmaceutical
companies and submitted at least 140,000 false claims to Medicare and Medicaid for antipsychotic
medications he prescribed for thousands of mentally ill patients in area nursing homes, according
to a civil health care fraud lawsuit filed today by the United States.  The defendant, Dr. Michael J.
Reinstein, also submitted at least 50,000 claims to Medicare and Medicaid, falsely stating that he
provided “pharmacologic management” for his patients at more than 30 area nursing homes and
long-term care facilities, the lawsuit alleges.
