Sarbanes-Oxley Act

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 was passed in response to major corporate and accounting scandals including Enron, Tyco International and WorldCom to protect investors from corporate governance malfeasance.  In 2006, "corruption" was the issue of greatest concern to American voters.

Kaiser Permanente is one of the not-for-profit healthcare organizations that stated that it would voluntarily adhere to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.  The documents posted on our website substantiate that in 2003 George Halvorson, Kaiser Permanente's Chairman & CEO, and former KPMG Vice Chairman J. Neal Purcell, conspired to rig bids in order to permit Kaiser to hire KPMG as its independent auditor.  Subsequently, Kaiser and KPMG have defrauded investors, patients and other entities/individuals through a RICO Enterprise that nullifies Kaiser Permanente's compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

How to Play HMO HARDBALL has blown the whistle on the Kaiser Permanente/KPMG RICO conspiracy that harms HMO patients.  Our progress, in protecting patients by assuring Kaiser Permanente's compliance with the law, will continue to be posted.
