Rick Scott likes to say: "I refuse to apologize for my success." But Floridians know that his "success" was marred by fraud — the largest Medicare fraud in the history of the United States. politi.co/2N3IlYS #NotScott #FLSen
"The legacy of Scott’s leadership of Columbia/HCA — once the nation’s largest for-profit hospital chain before it ousted Scott and settled the largest health care fraud fine in history at the time — underpins his political identity."
"Scott was reluctant to cooperate with federal investigators, not responding to repeated requests for an interview with federal investigators in 1995 regarding accusations against the company, and he remained CEO and chairman of Columbia/HCA’s board."
"Scott was forced to resign... receiving at least $10 million in cash — including $5 million under a consulting agreement — and $300 million in stock and options."
"The company completed what was then the largest health care fraud settlement with the federal government, ponying up $1.7 billion for a range of fraud settlements including cost report fraud and kickback payment to physicians. It also pleaded guilty to 14 corporate felonies."
Rick Scott's awful record on healthcare continued after his fraud:

❌ Opposes expanding access to healthcare for nearly 1 MILLION Floridians

❌ Won't stand up to protect healthcare for nearly 8 MILLION Floridians with preexisting conditions
