12/12/2019 3:25pm

Former Washington Redskins players face federal charges for allegedly defrauding the NFLs health care benefits program for retired players. Federal charges were announced Thursday morning against 10 former players of multiple NFL teams. Former Redskins players Clinton Portis, Robert McCune and John Eubanks are among those charged. The participants in the scheme stole more than $3.9 million and treated the health care plan like their own personal ATM, Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski said at a news conference. Ten former NFL players allegedly committed a brazen, multi-million dollar fraud on a health care plan meant to help their former teammates and other retired players pay legitimate, out-of-pocket medical expenses, he said. The Justice Department launched an investigation after someone spotted irregular health insurance claims. The ex-players allegedly submitted claims for pricey medical equipment they never bought, including ultrasound machines, hyperbaric oxygen chambers and electromagnetic therapy devices designed for use on horses. The Justice Department launched an investigation after someone spotted the irregular claims. Prosecutors allege the players targeted the Gene Upshaw NFL Player Health Reimbursement Account Plan, which was established as part of a collective bargaining agreement in 2006. It provides tax-free reimbursement of out-of-pocket medical care expenses that were not covered by insurance and that were incurred by former players, their spouses and dependents.Portis is a contributor to NBC4s Redskins Showtime.

12/12/2019 12:56am

What to KnowThe change comes after a 2-year-old girl who was hit by a foul ball at Minute Maid park in Houston was hospitalized in May.Another 2-year-old girl was struck in the face by a 105-mph line drive at Yankees Stadium in 2017.All 30 Major League Baseball teams will expand the protective netting in stadiums starting with the 2020 season, baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred told CNBC in an interview Wednesday.The protective netting will extend substantially beyond the end of the dugout, Manfred told CNBC at the leagues winter meetings in San Diego.The change comes after a 2-year-old girl who was hit by a foul ball at Minute Maid park in Houston was hospitalized in May. She suffered a fractured skull, seizure, subdural bleeding, brain contusions and brain edema, doctors said at the time. Another 2-year-old girl was struck in the face by a 105-mph line drive at Yankees Stadium in 2017.Manfred said earlier this year the league wouldnt likely make changes to the protective netting during the 2019 season. Those changes are, however, coming next year, he said in an interview.Manfred said seven or eight clubs will extend the netting all the way to the foul poles, with another 15 teams extending it down to the elbow areas of playing fields.The reason for that is when the stadiums jut away you have to run cables over the playing field to go all the way to the foul pole, so its very difficult structurally to do, Manfred said. And then we had a group of clubs who were already well beyond the dugout, and they are going to continue in that mode.Technically, there is no rule forcing teams to extend the netting, but after the league office met with each club, both parties decided to make the move.There was no rule passed or anything like that, Manfred said. We just went out, talked to the clubs, made the case that extending netting was the thing to do, and the clubs individually responded in a positive way.AnNBC News investigationfound that from 2012 to 2019, there were at least 808 reports of injuries to fans from baseballs, the national news network reported in October. These injuries ranged from concussions to permanent vision loss.While most of the injuries were caused by foul balls, other injuries resulted from home runs and batting practice, NBC found.This story first appearedon CNBC.com.
