Florida is the number two state in the country for Medicaid fraud recoveries and a 'hotspot for health care fraud.'”

— South Florida Business Journal

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the recent passage of the federal stimulus package, which allocated $425 million for mental health services and an additional $1.32 billion for community mental health centers, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International announced that they will be increasing oversight of the mental health industry. [1]

Following the lead of CCHR International, the Florida chapter of CCHR is also increasing its oversight due to concerns that there will be an increase in telepsychiatry and a potential for greater abuse and fraud across the state.

“Within days of the passage of the stimulus package a Tampa psychiatric practice sent out a press release that they are now offering ‘drive-in’ telepsychiatry,” said the president of CCHR Florida Diane Stein. “CCHR is very concerned that in an effort to provide help during the COVID-19 crisis that instead of providing help the door to rampant fraud may have been opened.” [2]

In May of 2019, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services’ Office of Inspector General ‘announced charges against 24 defendants associated with five telemedicine companies for their alleged participation in healthcare fraud schemes involving more than $1.2 billion in losses”. [3]

Then in September of 2019, the “Department of Justice announced the indictment of 35 people across the country on charges connected to allegedly fraudulently billing Medicare for more than $2.1 billion in what the department called the “’largest healthcare fraud schemes ever charged.’ According to Medical Economics, at its core, the scheme, involved “illegal bribes and kickbacks to medical professionals working with fraudulent telemedicine companies in exchange for referrals of Medicare beneficiaries.” [4]

As reported the South Florida Business Journal, Florida is the number two state in the country for Medicaid fraud recoveries and a “hotspot for health care fraud.” [5]

CCHR is not the only organization that is concerned with the potential for fraud in Florida as a result of the passage of the federal stimulus package. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida announced today that they are “launching a task force with state and local officials to investigate fraud related to the coronavirus.” [6]

“At this time, it is more important than ever to ensure that people receive real help and do not become the victims of fraud and abuse,” said Stein. “CCHR is working remotely but more diligently than ever to ensure that if people need to report abuse, we are there for them.”

CCHR operates a hotline free of charge where people who have been the victim of psychiatric abuse or fraud can make an official report by calling 800-782-2878 or online at Report Psychiatric Abuse or Fraud.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information please visit www.cchrflorida.org.

Export Standby Letter of Credit

Export Standby Letter of Credit

SWITZERLAND, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is a legal document that guarantees a bank's commitment of payment to a seller in the event that the buyer–or the bank's client–defaults on the agreement. The Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) helps facilitate international trade between companies that don't know each other and have different laws and regulations. The Standby Letter of Credit can also be abbreviated SBLC.

How a Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) Works : Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is most often sought by a business to help it obtain a contract. The contract is a "standby" agreement because the bank will have to pay only in a worst-case scenario. Although an SBLC guarantees payment to a seller, the agreement must be followed exactly.

There are two main types of Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC):

The Financial SBLC guarantees payment for goods or services as specified by an agreement. An oil refining company, for example, might arrange for such a letter to reassure a seller of crude oil that it can pay for a huge delivery of crude oil.

The performance SBLC , which is less common, guarantees that the client will complete the project outlined in a contract. The bank agrees to reimburse the third party in the event that its client fails to complete the project.

Benefits Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC):

▪ The Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) is often seen in contracts involving international trade, which tend to involve a large commitment of money and have added risks.

▪ Avoid or secure advance payment.

▪ Obtain Credit.

▪ Secure compensation for non-fulfillment of important obligation.

▪ The banks involved will act according to the internationally accepted rules of the International Chamber of Commerce.

Common Use of Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC)- Advance payment guarantees – Payment guarantees – Performance guarantees.

Security in Foreign Trading:

Offer your trading partner a Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) to secure the fulfillment of your company's obligations under the agreement. This way your trading partner knows that you are a reliable cooperation partner.


Use Standby Letter of Credit (SBLC) for managing foreign trade risks.

Financial Planning – Understanding Advisory Management

bank instruments

Financial Planning – Understanding Advisory Management

SWITZERLAND, March 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Advisory Management: The term advisory management refers to the provision of professional, personalized investment guidance. Advisory management services allow private individuals to consult with investment professionals before making changes to their portfolios. Advisory management professionals have expertise in one or more investment areas and provide guidance that is tailored to an individual's specific situation.

Advisory management is the provision of professional, personalized investment guidance, usually for a fee.
Individuals, independent teams, or a group of professionals within a private bank, investment management firm, or specialist advisory boutique can carry out advisory management.

Key roles in advisory management include financial advisors, portfolio managers, investment bankers, and investment managers.
Advisory management professionals review their clients' personal situations, determine the best asset classes, monitor investment performance, provide guidance, and rebalance portfolios.

Understanding Advisory Management: Advisory management involves the management and planning of investment portfolios, usually for a fee. Individual investors who seek investment advice will seek the services of an advisory manager or an advisory management firm. Individuals, an independent team, or a group of professionals within a private bank, investment management firm, or specialist advisory boutique can carry out advisory management. Key roles in the advisory management field include:

Financial advisors: These professionals provide guidance and financial advice including investment management, tax and estate planning.
Portfolio managers: This group comprises of one or more people who invest in any number of and manage day-to-day portfolio trading to maximize returns.
Investment bankers: These bankers help corporate clients find sources of capital for business deals, and also provide analysis and guidance.
Investment advisors: Clients who turn to investment advisors receive highly specialized advice and guidance for investment and financial planning.

Investment advisors who work for advisory management groups meet and work with clients in a number of capacities. They assess a client's time horizon, performance objectives, and risk tolerance to determine which asset classes are the most suitable investments. Advisors are responsible for routine monitoring of investment performance and often execute orders, and also provide guidance in the areas of asset allocation and portfolio rebalancing. Portfolio rebalancing safeguards an investor from undesirable risks and ensures that the portfolio’s exposure remains within the manager's area of expertise.

Asset allocation is the practice of balancing risk and reward within a portfolio according to an individual's goals or an institution’s policy. Managers distribute the portfolio’s funds among three main asset classes: Equities, fixed-income, and cash and equivalents, along with alternative investments such as private equity and derivatives.

Because each asset class offers varying levels of risk and return, each behaves differently over time. Investors may use different asset allocations for different objectives. For example, someone who is saving for a year of travel in the near-term might invest his savings in a conservative mix of cash, certificates of deposit (CDs), and short-term bonds. Another individual saving for a down payment on an expensive home—at least a decade away—could diversify into more stocks since she has more time to ride out the market's short-term fluctuations.

According to the Financial Conduct Authority, a wealth manager (sometimes also referred to as an investment manager) is a firm or individual that manages a client’s money or investments on either a discretionary or advisory basis. However, many people are not clear on the difference between discretionary and advisory investment management, and are not sure which option is best for them.

Discretionary Investment Management.: A Discretionary service is where the firm manages a client’s portfolio of investments in line with a risk profile agreed with them beforehand. This means the firm are able to manage the portfolio without checking with the client before making routine alterations. However, they will still be required to check beforehand if they wish to make a change that is outside the scope of the agreed mandate.

Advisory Investment Management: An Advisory service is where the firm will make recommendations based on the client’s circumstances and attitude to risk; however, they have to contact the client and obtain agreement before any changes are made to the portfolio. The firm is unable to make changes to a client’s portfolio without prior agreement.

Anthony D. Parone is the founder of the Law Office of Anthony D. Parone.

Since 1960, Parone has dedicated his practice to servings his clients in the areas of divorce and family law, as well as corporate and real estate law.

Parone says he was guided toward the law by his uncle. He credits his success to his experience. He’s proven over and over to be fair and that his clients can trust him.

I enjoyed going to court, resolving issues between parties and getting things done. Above all, I enjoyed trying to convince the judge that I was right and my opponent was wrong.

Parone is admitted to practice by the New York Bar Association, the California Bar Association, the Southern District of the U.S. District Court of California, and the Western District of the U.S. District Court of New York.

In the 1960s, Parone focused mainly on corporate work, which involved everything from lawsuits to real estate to board of directors meetings. Prior to establishing the Law Office of Anthony D.

He was an associate attorney with Saperston, Wiltse, Duke, Day & Wilson in Buffalo, NY from 1966 to 1968 and a lawyer at Gellman & Gellman from 1961 to 1965.

Parone says he is currently focused on title searches, including one that goes back to 1910.

Parone maintains affiliation with the Niagara County Bar Association and is a former member of the Bar Association of Niagara Falls, where he served as president in 1983.

Though he is no longer active in the association. He says he enjoyed the camaraderie, even with lawyers who would one day be his opponents in court.

“Some days they're your worst enemy and other days they can be your friend and you can sit down and have a drink with them,” says Parone.

At 85, and still in very good health, Parone says his goal is to keep practicing as long as he can.

Asked if there is one lesson he could impart to the audience, he says, “If you're young or in college, think about going to law school. It's an interesting life.”

Tony Sanny joins Leydig, Voit & Mayer in Boulder, CO.

Leydig, Voit & Mayer IP Law firm proudly announces Tony Sanny becoming a part of the team.

BOULDER, CO, USA, March 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leydig, Voit & Mayer, a nationally-ranked global intellectual property law firm, is pleased to announce that Tony Sanny has joined the Boulder office. Tony Sanny focuses on intellectual property strategy, technology commercialization, patent prosecution, and portfolio management. “Tony’s molecular biology background and track record in the life sciences industry adds to the expertise and scope of services we are able to provide our clients,” says John Kilyk, President of Leydig, Voit & Mayer, Ltd.

Sanny, an attorney who holds a Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology as well as a M.B.A., believes that his biotechnology and pharmaceutical practice provides a strong complement to the chemistry, chemical engineering, and biotech practice of Leydig’s Boulder Office in addition to the interdisciplinary team across Leydig’s offices in Chicago; Alexandria, Virginia; the San Francisco Bay Area; and Frankfurt, Germany.

Sanny has represented some of the largest biotech and pharma companies in Colorado, Fortune 500 companies, local universities, such as University of Colorado and Colorado State University, the National Institutes of Health and many startups as well as independent inventors. He has successfully obtained patents for his clients across the globe.

Sanny, an inventor with multiple patents of his own, has worked on contract with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office conducting and supervising patent examination. Sanny was also the General Counsel for a start-up solar energy company in Boulder-Denver.
“Leydig’s Boulder Office feels like the perfect place for me to practice patent law, with a deep bench of diverse legal expertise in Leydig as a whole and a particularly strong chemical and biotech patent practice locally,” says Sanny.
