Another random thought. When our Mom was in an assisted living facility prior to her passing a few years ago, I started monitoring her on-line Medicare account. We all of a sudden started seeing recurring charges from a physical therapist. Her doctor had not prescribed such services, nor had the facility consulted me and siblings about engaging these services. When I challenged the staff, asking who was this person, and what PT services they were providing, I received no answer. But concurrently, all of a sudden, the charges stopped completely.

Now, she was incurring no out of pocket expenses, but the whole thing was bordering on Medicare fraud to us. This may not be relevant in this case, but I'm just proving it FYI.
