FBI raids on The Scooter Store headquarters in Texas went down on Wednesday (Feb. 20). The FBI claimed that The Scooter Store was accused of overbilling Medicare by more than $100 million between 2009-2012. According to a report on Friday (Feb. 22), that information came out during a government audit. As to why exactly this particular raid took place, there is a bit of mystery involved.
The report went on to state that 150 federal and state law enforcement agents took part in the raid of the New Braunfels headquarters and that 1,200 employees had to be escorted out of the building. Despite the massive raid that took place, the FBI has not yet revealed details about what crimes or possible charges led to the search warrant being carried out.
When the FBI raids a company as large as The Scooter Store people take notice, but right now there have been very few facts released about the intent of the search warrant. All that is out there are rumors that include that the FBI could have been looking into whether there were company employees that would harass physicians intentionally to get them to prescribe more chairs.
More news about this is expected to come out as the weekend gets underway, but clearly the FBI is trying to keep this investigation under wraps.
