Tracy Green Interviewed On NPR Station On "Use Of Unappoved Birth Control Devices Common In U.S." National Issues With Physicians Using IUDs Manufactured In Other Countries.

Tracy Green was interviewed by radio station WRNI (Rhode Island's NPR Station) in a program entitled "Use Of Unappoved Birth Control Devices Common In U.S." This is a program on OB-GYNs using IUDs from Canada. In the U.S. only IUDs from two companies are "FDA approved" even if the IUD is the same as ones purchased from other countries. In the article and program, Green was quoted as follows: "They just thought, wow, this is a great deal," said lawyer Tracy Green. " Don't be a knucklehead and over pay." Green practices in Los Angeles, and she represented five doctors who did the same thing three years ago in California. She says the practice was pretty widespread. "One of my doctors, it was another OBGYN who called him and said, Boy, my office, we found a great price.' And you know, they're all board certified OB-GYNs," Green said. "They just thought this was a great deal." Green says the IUDs appeared to be identical to the ones the doctors usually prescribed. They even had the same packaging. The lawyer representing the Rhode Island doctors who bought the UN-approved IUDs declined to speak on tape for this story, but he's argued the same thing: There was nothing different about these devices; they were just cheaper because they came from Canada. Attorney Commentary: I have represented numerous physicians on this particular issue in California over the past three years. The issue for physicians who bill Medicare or Medicaid (Medi-Cal) for non-FDA approved devices is that they cannot bill the programs and will be liable for repaying any claims submitted. Whether a case proceeds to criminal prosecution will depend on whether there was criminal intent and if the physician knew it was a non-FDA approved device. It has been my experience that often the physicians are not buying the supplies, the non-FDA supplies were sold by pharmacies or other supply companies, and that just because the price was lower does not trigger a suspicion that it is non-FDA approved.
