I can't say I understand the insurance charges going on here, but the recruitment of tissue donors seems like as good a use of models as any.
Charging $4300 for what was claimed to be a $100 test would appear to be a legitimate basis for the AG's office to start asking questions.
To this cynic, though, the bandwidth spent on the models just seems to be a red herring used by the article's author to gussy up the article and pad the word count.
Of course it's blatant fraud...but a good idea if the screening were gratis and actual donors with good matches were recruited.
There are FAR worse ways to spend money...as we have seen this week in Congress.
