Public health scam, 540 thousand euros seized from a Venetian doctor

Inefficiencies in outpatient activities, it is a doctor of general medicine, in agreement with the Usl 3 Serenissima and 4 Veneto Orientale, investigated for the crimes of false declarations and fraud

VENEZIA. Following the investigations directed by the Venice Public Prosecutor’s Office, the Guardia di Finanza executed a preventive seizure order aimed at confiscating for equivalent availability for over half a million euros against a general practitioner operating in agreement with the Local Health Units 3 Serenissima and 4 Eastern Veneto, under investigation for the crimes of false declarations and fraud.

The provision is the result of an investigation delegated to the Venice Economic and Financial Police unit and originated from some reports relating to various inefficiencies that would have been caused by the professional in carrying out primary care outpatient activities.

The investigations carried out allowed us to acquire serious clues as to the fact that the inconveniences complained of by the patients were attributable to the intense activity unrelated to his role as general practitioner as he was simultaneously engaged on an ongoing basis in the activities of coroner, occupational physician and other.

Concrete elements have been acquired about a freelance activity with an hourly commitment in activities unrelated to the agreement with the Local Health Authorities considerably higher than that allowed by the sector legislation that the doctor would have omitted to declare to the competent bodies perhaps in order not to suffer the planned downsizing of the ceiling for clients.

In order to protect the sums that would have been unduly received, quantified at around 540 thousand euros, the Finance Office carried out the aforementioned seizure order on the current accounts of the suspect.
