More Questions About Scientology-Style Drug Rehab And Insurance -- This Time in Michigan - 2013-11-06
We've been watching things deteriorate for Scientology's closed drug rehab center in the Atlanta area — Narconon Georgia — whose employees are now being investigated for potential criminal charges following a raid by law enforcement in April.
Our readers will likely remember that documents pried out of Narconon Georgia during a wrongful death lawsuit inspired Atlanta's media to dig even further until they found evidence that a woman's insurance company had been charged more than $160,000 after she had been told her advance payment of $15,000 would completely cover her daughter's treatment. After state investigators began a criminal probe based on that information, millions more in suspicious charges to insurance companies turned up.
Now we've talked to a man who said he was told his treatment would cost $20,000 — but then found that his insurance company was billed nearly $200,000 instead. This man's name is Sean Blevins, and he was treated at a Narconon-style center in Manistee, Michigan. We have Sean's insurance billings. Will they inspire the same kind of interest in Michigan that has law enforcement digging in Georgia?
