What's the Billing Code for "Red Hot Lover?"

It's one thing for a physician to carry on an illicit love affair with a patient. While unethical and potentially dangerous, it's at least possible to understand the motivation. But in a case that redefines the term "chutzpah:"

"Dr. Daniel R. Lerom is listed in documents as having a long-standing sexual relationship with his Lakeland patient ... Each time the two had sex ... the doctor would bill her Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance for their "sessions."


Talk about overutilization!

No word yet from our Guru on whether this would qualify for reimbursement under an HSA or Flex Plan.
