Prognosis Guarded

Trusting your doctor

by Marvin Ginsburg MD

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Serious injuries have been caused by doctors and medical groups cheating Medicare. This has resulted in agencies denying patient services, false billings for services never delivered, or billing outrageous costs has caused serious injury to patients and providers. They were all motivated by the almighty dollar and Medicare was a primary target. This was the stimulus that motivated me to write the medical thriller "Prognosis Guarded".
"Prognosis Guarded" follows the exploits of doctors who owned a small hospital to develop in their own creative way, a method to bill Medicare for patients who were critical throughout their hospitalization. However, these patients had died months to years previously. This is a medical mystery surrounding greed and the dedicated medical professionals who attempt to uncover the mysteries. This book is a page turner that involves the interpersonal relationships that entwine in evil and an outcome that cannot be anticipated though hints are presented repeatedly.
