Background on the case, important medical implications on Cuban, Haitian refugees.
Recarey has been charged with bribery, wiretapping, has left USA.
During his medical services days, was the LARGEST RECIPIENT OF MEDICARE BENEFITS IN THE USA. (In spite of fact where seed funds came from)
Involved in 1970 hospital scandal, $200,000. He kept books, not charged.
IRS sent him to jail in 1973, caught up with unpaid taxes. "Local GROUP NEEDED A NEW HOSPITAL, needed money, offered Recarey the deal if he would approach MAFIA BOSS SANTO TRAFFICANTE AND FINANCIER ROBERT VESCO". Started HMO, Health Maintenance Organizations, it merged with International Medical Centers. Handled Cuban refugees, 10,000, automatically enrolled families.
Refugee contracts for THOUSANDS OF HAITIANS added to his roster.
THINK ABOUT THIS: THE CUBANS AND HAITIANS WERE OFFERED IMMEDIATE MEDICAL "CARE" AS SOON AS THEY CAME TO FLORIDA. SANTOS TRAFFICANTE PART OF CIA TEAM TO KILL CASTRO BY POISONS. DID ANY OF THIS HEAVILY FINANCED MEDICAL OPERATION HAVE TO DO WITH AIDS IN FLORIDA, AMONG CUBANS, BLACKS?
