"Cover Story" piece on fifteen people, including a city police detective, assist
"Cover Story" piece on fifteen people, including a city police detective, assistant attorney general and a trial lawyer, who have come forward since last spring with complaints about the care military retirees and their families receive at Martin's Point Health Care in Portland. Among the concerns is the care leading up to at least five patient deaths, although no one is accusing Martin's Point of directly causing the deaths. U.S. represenative Tom Allen, D-Maine, has sought an independent investigation by the inspector general for the Defense Department. But the inspector general professed to lack expertise in medical decisions and sent the request back to TriCare, the military Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) that has an exclusive contract with Martin's Point. With details about the deaths that have prompted the investigation.
