Organized Crime Infiltration of Dental Care Plans
The Commission held a public hearing in December 1980 and issued a
report in June 1981. Legislation was enacted in 1982-83 incorporating
the Commissionís recommendations for barring organized crime influence
in dental care plans sold to labor unions and for increased auditing,
monitoring and financial disclosure for such plans. The SCI was
represented by a Commissioner and its Executive Director at a U.S. House
Aging Committee hearing in 1981 on abuses of health care trust funds and
at a public hearing by the Pennsylvania Crime Commission in 1981 on its
probe of mob influence over the operation of labor union dental plans.
