This piece uncovered Medicare fraud by The SCOOTER Store, the nation's leading supplier of power wheelchairs. We spent months finding and interviewing former employees of the company. They told us The SCOOTER Store “bulldozed” doctors into writing prescriptions for wheelchairs, whether patients needed them or not. Relentless phone calls and in person visits wore doctors down. They also said the company ranked doctors based on whether they would prescribe chairs, and that it had a program specifically to get chairs for people that physicians had already deemed ineligible.
