  1. I sent in a letter of compliant and the only thing you are saying is that you all do not have enforcement authority over improper business practices and/or wrongful termination?

    The letter that I sent to you was telling you about forgery that a company is par-taking in and you don’t have enforcement authority? So please tell me what do you do beside collect money and send out money? When I worked for you we had to be very conscience orientated employees about providers and their signatures. But I tell you that a company is signing the providers names on applications and you think I just want to tell you this because of wrongful termination? That is a criminal act according to our law and you just let them get away with it. I have witnesses that will testify to all the wrong that this company is doing. So you just let them get away with it?

    I have names that have been forged and I have people that will testify, that what I’m saying is the truth. So are you all going to ignore it?

    1. Hi Irene,

      You might consider contacting HHS if you need to file or follow up on a complaint (we’re not affiliated with HHS in any way.)

      Good luck!
