Owe Money to Implantium? Put the Check Book Away

October 28th, 2013

Welcome back from your weekend, dear readers.  Your humble blogger is aware that many of his readers eagerly rush to get to their offices on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays so they can read his blog posts before starting their day.  Well, if you’re one of those folks – good news!  Check your to-do list or the next few weeks.  Does the word “Implantium” appear anywhere?

If you were preparing to write a check to the durable medical equipment provider (and frequent lien claimant) Implantium, perhaps you should put a pin in that idea.

The former CEO of Implantium has plead no contest to felony insurance fraud chargers.  Implantium apparently overcharged Santa Clara County and the City of San Jose (both self-insured) by faking the amounts paid to manufacturers for surgical spinal implants.

As my beloved readers may recall, a previous blog post noted when charges were first filed.  Furthermore, an EAMS search reflects about 10 liens filed by Implantium for a total of more than $336,000.

Look through your old bills – perhaps it might be a good time to get some of that money back, or at least seek credit against any outstanding liens/bills.

A hearty congratulations to the Santa Clara County District Attorney and his hard-working (and often unmentioned) deputy DAs who helped make this happen.
