$8.5 Million to be refunded to the Federal Government by MB2 Dental

The federal government has been losing a lot of money from people that make false insurance claims for medical and other cases. The latest of these cases that has been uncovered involves MB2 Dental and other 21 practices in Texas. The company has been ordered to make payments amounting to 8.5 million to the federal government as repayment for claims that were falsely made on pediatric insurance premiums.

The company was set up to coordinate the provision of dental services for many practices. Their services include but aren’t limited to making insurance claims and on behalf of the practices that are affiliated to them and generally making sure that business is running as it should.

The attorney who was in charge of the case stated that the claims were made between 2009 and 2014 and that it was after a series of investigations that the state realized the claims were not related to any dental services that had been rendered.

The lawyer confirmed that this was the first of the many steps that the company was making to ensure that taxpayers stopped losing money through fraudulent deals. Among the mistakes that the company had made was the use of wrong Medicaid provider numbers and also violations of the anti-kickback laws. Most of the claims that had been made by MB2 were related to the pediatric practice.

On top of the amount of money that was set out to be paid by the company to the state, there are certain people in the leadership of the company that will be expected to take up some personal liability in the case. Learn more about MB2 Dental: http://mb2dental.com/

These include Drs. Akhil Reddy, Christopher Villanueva, Trung Minh Tang, Mauricio Dardano, and Gabriel Shahwan. Each of these Doctors will be expected to pay a sum of $250,000

About Dr. Akhil Reddy

According to Indeed, before he joined the management board of MB2 Dental, Dr. Akhil Reddy was working as a dentist in Fort Worth Texas. He has close to a decade of experience in the field and has other practices in five other locations.

This is the background that gave him the opportunity to work at the board of the organization. According to White Pages, he says that it is an unfortunate misunderstanding that has happened with MB2 Denatal, but affirmed that the company was planning to make the repayment to show their goodwill.

He hoped that whatever mistakes had happened in the past would not be repeated in the near future.

The statement that Squaw Valley has given about upper mountain water quality

Not so long ago, there was a news item that was talking about the presence of E. coli in the water that is used by the occupants of the Squaw Valley Ski upper mountain. The company was quiet about the issue for a week, but they have finally come out to try and clarify things for their customers. The management of the company gave the following statement about the issue.

They stated that last October, there was a heavy downpour in the area, something that really affected the underground water system in a negative way. The company believes that during these rains some of the water that was being used by the resort got contaminated. They state that as soon as they realized there were issues with the water, they took measures to make sure that none of their clients had taken the same. The company then started looking for the help of experts in treating the water and making it edible. They have been offering alternative water to their clients since that time.

The company stated that there was no point during the entire ordeal that any of their clients has been exposed to contaminated water. They confirmed that the process of making sure that the water was getting cleaned up was still underway and that as soon as it was completed, they would make the water available for them. The areas of the company that have been most affected by the issue is High Camp and Gold Coast because it is this system that had been contaminated. They state that they are really concerned about the safety of their customers.

The company has organized the place in such a manner that all the guests that are being housed in the areas where the water is contaminated, they can access the water bought by the school. The company gave thanks to all the local authorities for the role they had played in ensuring that the child was treated before the contamination really ruined business for them. The company is optimistic that things will get better after this ordeal and that the customers will understand the hitch.

Bob Reina Knows What Giving Back Can Do

When Bob Reina started Talk Fusion in 2007, he did not start it for himself. He started it for the people. That says a lot about a person’s character and it says a lot about what they are made out of and what they stand for in their lives.

A lot of people start things for the wrong reason. Their only goal is money and that is it. They do not care how they get it, and enough is never enough for them. They become greedy and once they get a little bit of money, they want more and it becomes a horrible pattern.

Bob Reina started Talk Fusion in 2007 because he saw a need out there. Everyone knows how bad the economy got and how rough things were on people. A lot of people lost a lot of money and a lot of people were forced to take jobs they did not like.

They had a responsibility to their families and they had to have money to pay their bills. Deep down, however, they were incredibly unhappy. They were forced to work jobs that made them flat out miserable and made them hate their lives.

With Talk Fusion, people are loving life. A lot of people out there love the idea of working from home. However, for one reason or another, they talk themselves out of it. They just don’t think it can happen for them.

It is for other people in their minds. With Talk Fusion, they can see that it is for them and it is their life. They don’t have to live like this anymore.

This is just one of the many ways that Bob Reina and Talk Fusion have given back. Perhaps the greatest thing they have done is the record breaking donation they made to the Tampa Bay Humane Society, which saved the lives of so many animals. One would have to have to be pretty cynical not to be moved by that.

Fabletics – Ruling the Athleisure Industry Reverse Showroom Technique

The recent years exhibit a growth in customer relationships to gain popularity by businesses while there appears to be a degeneration in the value of brands. This is because modern consumers do not only prefer high-value products to have dual characteristics of being affordable at a good price and reliable with high-quality performance. Modern consumers want more attributes like good customer handling, exclusive features and loyalty perks.

 

 

Fabletics and its Recognized Online Customer Management Program

 

Fabletics is one such company who has been able to identify the wants of the modern consumers and has reached success in catering to these desires. Fabletics implements its services mainly via an online subscription program to sell sportswear or athletic range of apparels. This had resulted in the success of Fabletics within the Fashion industry. The company had been able to evolve into a $250 million enterprise within only 3 years.

 

The Use of “Reverse Showroom Technique” by Fabletics

 

Fabletics has had a successful growth in consumer usage and popularity because it applied the “reverse showroom technique.” Showrooming is what the competing brands are suffering from that’s leading to their low consumer response. The showrooming act is when people cruise through all the products within the market and end up buying from the retailer who is offering the product at the cheapest rate. Fabletics had decided to turn this act around so that the customers browse through the products offered by Fabletics and end up buying those products from their retail stores. Using this strategy, Fabletics gains one-quarter of their browsing consumers as Fabletics members and between one-third and half of these consumers end up purchasing the products they had previously browsed online.

 

 

Fabletics is able to offer products at the lowest price in comparison to its competitors because it takes full advantage of its online engagement system performed with its consumers. They only stock and can undergo rapid changes in trends using the data obtained from users online. Additionally, users receive even greater benefits when they become members who receive discounts and other perks from the company. Furthermore, the company offers its consumers with convenience in browsing online that leads to quicker selections and purchases made by the user.

 

 

Fabletics – Revolutionizing Activewear

 

Fabletics was established in 2013 after a surprising deficiency in lavish, low-cost and conveniently accessible activewear was observed within the fashion industry. This company was Co-Founded by the acclaimed Hollywood star, Kate Hudson. Hudson was accompanied by Adam Goldenberg and Don Ressler, the Co-CEOs of JustFab Inc. during the establishment of Fabletics.

 

 

The shopping style for Fabletics is unique. The shoppers have to log onto the main site first and then participate in a pop quiz. The pop quiz reveals custom recommendations based on the answers of the shoppers. Then, shoppers can select the items they prefer and check out as a guest or a VIP member.

Central Texas Mobility Authority on Traffic Issues

Williamson County had a panel discussion at their 19th annual Growth Summit to discuss an incredibly important issue in the area, that of transportation challenges. The panel included representatives from both the public and private sector, including Mike Heiligenstein, chairman of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority. The discussion was focused strongly on new transportation and mobility options that have been opened up by new technologies.

 

Heiligenstein and the Mobility Authority are responsible for transportation solutions in Williamson County, which would include the growing road system. Heilingenstein thus has several opinions about transit technologies, as well as the infrastructure of the past. He praised the last fifteen years of infrastructure growth by Williamson County, but pointed out that there is still massive population growth, requiring a continued investment in infrastructure.

 

Heilingenstein, while being a fan of the new technologies discussed in the panel, sees them as only part of the solution. With more people coming to the suburbs in Williamson County, the traffic infrastructure as a whole needs to be improved. He has a strong desire for more and smarter roads to handle the traffic coming into newly-developed areas.

 

One of the other panel members, a transportation-focused product designer, was a fan of autonomous cars, but pointed out that even with that new technology, the road infrastructure will be needed, as the cars will still need roads and driveways even if they are automatically controlled. Another point made was by an Uber represenative, which is that even with public transportation, commuters need the solutions from their home to the public transportation and back.

 

Overall, new technologies are seen by the panel as enhancements to the current system, rather than a silver bullet fixing all transportation woes. While technology will surely be a consideration as Williamson County increases its transportation infrastructure, traditional methods will still play a major role. More roads, smart roads will be part of the scene in Williamson County for a long time to come.
