AmazonFresh Comes to Dallas

amazon

Amazon started out as a basic bookseller, but this business juggernaut quickly became the place to be for any of life’s needs. You can buy almost anything that you need for the household with the click of your mouse. The only limitation that Amazon had was the lack of groceries. That fact is quickly changing as AmazonFresh enters more marketplaces around the nation. Dallas is the latest area to be graced with this service, and customers are intrigued with the idea.

  • Groceries Automatically to the Doorstep

AmazonFresh is simply an extension of the traditional shipping experience that you’ve appreciated from the company’s inception. You fill your virtual cart, and Amazon’s workers pull those items from their local warehouse. The only difference is the fresh factor. Amazon only pulls the freshest produce and other items so that they’re viable as soon as they hit your doorstep. The main hurdles that stop most cities from incorporating AmazonFresh into the landscape is supply and demand. There must be enough demand for these fresh products to make them move quickly off of the warehouse shelves. Dallas is fortunate to have a strong demand at this point.

  • Considering the Prime Program

The best way to enjoy AmazonFresh is by joining Prime. Amazon Prime is a membership program that millions of people enjoy because it offers many free shipping opportunities with an included subscription to Prime Video. Adding Fresh to your Prime account will only cost an additional $15 each month. For busy people looking for fresh ideas in their refrigerator, this minimal cost is worth the money.

  • Generic and Local Options

Fresh wants their service to be as affordable as the other products on the site. As a solution, Amazon adds in a mixture of generic, specialty and local products to the ordering area. You can grab those necessary canned items, or look up a specialty cheese you’ve always wanted to try out. Organic, gluten-free and other custom products are also available. You simply need to browse the virtual shelves as you would at a standard grocery store.

  • Same-Day Delivery Available

Amazon Fresh knows that time is of the essence when it comes to produce and frozen goods. In many cases, you can enjoy same-day delivery in the Dallas area. Order your food in the morning, and see it delivered at dinnertime. There are some exceptions to this service, but you’ll be fully aware of the shipping process when you initially order the items. Amazon strives to curb your appetite with expedited shipping through their local partners.

  • Starting Out is Easy

Fresh is opening up its virtual doors to serve the Dallas area. When you visit the site for the first time, plug in your zip code. The site automatically pulls up the foods that are available for your area. Sign in, fill your cart and check out with a completed grocery list. You’ll receive a confirmation email that describes your shipment time to a precise moment.

It’s incredibly easy to shop and click your way across Amazon’s many platforms. You’ll need to follow your traditional budget plan if you want to incorporate AmazonFresh into your life. Purchase the basics, such as bread and rice, and carefully evaluate those luxury items. At the end of the order, you should have a full refrigerator that’s within your financial means.

It matters to them where they live, and they need some helping getting into those places.

The first thing that most people need to remember is that volunteers have come out to help with these homes, and they are making it very simple for these people to move in once the homes are done. The homes have been built to make sure that every homeless person in the area is given a chance to move off the street, and they will notice that it is a lot easier to have a better life when they have a roof over their head. The 50 homes that were built are only the beginning of the project, and it is something that help people come together in community to help others who also need to get off the street.

 

Dallas is a great city that is doing all that it can to help the people who are homeless, and it is trying to be sure that its population is taken care of.

A Heartless & Criminal Ear Care Scam Erupts in Dallas

ear-care

The Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, just announced one of the country’s largest Medicare frauds in recent history. The announcement was made on June 22nd, 2016. The fraud was an ear care relate scam that targeted senior citizens more than any other generation. The scam spans throughout the country, though the epicenter is Dallas, Texas.

 

The Culprits

There are plenty of people to blame, and the Attorney General is making sure that everyone who is guilty is indicted, but there is one couple that is taking most of the heat in Dallas. That couple is Harlan R. Hill and Latecia P. Hill, though the Latecia’s mother was also indicted. Harlan is 52 years of age and is the owner of Total Senior Ear Care while his wife was the administrator of the company. Latecia is 50 years of age. Her mother is 71, and she was in charge of running day-to-day operations and marketed the company to nursing homes around Dallas.

The entire family was indicted with 15 counts of health care fraud. As of right now, the investigations have exposed that the couple stole more than 5.1 million dollars from the defendants that are suing. This does not include the people who have not come forth.

 

The Scam

The scam consisted of several deceptions and wrongdoings that are simply malicious to say the least. It seems that Latecia, along with the rest of her family, told nursing homes that their company was able to provide on-site ear care to their elderly residents. The company promised a comprehensive evaluation by professional ear, nose, and throat doctors. Total Senior Ear Care hired several physicians and medical assistants whenever a nursing home hired them to provide complete care to the facilities. The contracted physicians and medical assistants were told to complete an entire sweep of the facility, leaving no person untreated. The company ensured that every patient was treated, even if ear-related services were not required.

The company would sometimes report seeing about 100 people in just one day. The visits usually took about five minutes, though the time reported to Medicare was much longer. Latecia and her mother told their staff to see a patient even if the patient was unconscious or not moving. Apparently, the daughter and mother would instruct their staff that a mere eye movement should be interpreted as consent for some of the following:

  • Ear exam
  • Ear cleaning
  • Ear-probe testing

The fraudulent family ordered staff to check for ear wax on patients and claim that an ear wax cleaning was performed, even though these services were not provided. The company also diagnosed most patients with the same ailment, which was sensorineural hearing loss. This condition was not diagnosed in any way by a medical professional. Many of their medical assistants were asked to performed unnecessary hearing-related screenings to write even more fraudulent bills.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations has seized the Hill’s home, which is worth about 400,000 dollars and two relatively new Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Hopefully, the victims see this family pay for all of their wrongdoings.
