Government raid cripples company selling powered wheel chairs to Medicare patients.

…last week, The Scooter Store notified most of its remaining 1,800 employees that their jobs were being eliminated. The company said in a statement to the Associated Press that it is operating with a workforce of 300 employees — down from the 2,500 workforce it had at its peak — while trying to restructure its operations.

The mass layoffs followed a raid in February by about 150 agents from the FBI, the Department of Justice and the Texas attorney general’s Medicaid fraud unit at the company’s headquarters.


Editor’s note: All this, at little or no cost to you.

  1. I saw a show by John Stossel on this Government Giveaway! People who need Power Chairs/Scooters Should BE AlLOWED this service…..but the Fraud is RAMPANT! My cousin, age 58 loves hers. It allows her mobility, having Progressive M.S., she can catch a Van, to the Doctor for therapy. People over 65 were obtaining Deluxe Power Chairs with little or no reason!
