Child Protective Services

Other than pasting what I have snt to DCF, I am unsure of how to explain thematter or proceed. Any help ypu can offer will be appreciated.
OFFICE OF THE INSPECTOR GENERAL
Dawn Case Inspector General
The reason the Tampa MEDICAID office is willfully violating a court order is that they are colluding with the mother and maternal grandmother in conspiracy to commit fraud. The mother is addicted to Methadone and has been attending DACCO on Columbus Ave for approximately a year and a half. I reported this to the DCF employee in the Ocala region approximately a year ago. He did nothing. A missing person report was filed by Julie Smith during one of Amber Smith's drug induced absences. Her youngest child was born addicted. DCF Tampa did not contact the Father at any time during this process. Rivas would have had to admit that she was wrong and has falsified documents if the Father was awarded temporary custody. When missing Amber Smith was addicted to Meth. However, Rivas of the HCSO child protective div. found no cause. Fraudulent urinalysis results were submitted by Rivas. If her third child was born an addict, why was I not contacted by the authorities so that I could remove my son? Why did Lt. Rivas of the HCSO suppress the missing person report. On December 24, 2011 the mother was reported as having the "shakes' due to Methadone. The injuries my son has received and the lack of follow up to emergency room visits is due to her constant drug abuse. I guarantee you a wrongful death lawsuit.
RE: COURT ORDER IGNORED BY THE TAMPA MEDICAID OFFICE
I am interested in initiating a formal complaint against the Tampa DCF / MEDICAID office for the disturbing reasons detailed below. They are ignorant of the judicial system and its mandates. The court order that the Tampa office has lost and refuses to acknowledge specifically addresses the issue of my concern. It would have been helpful if an employee of the Tampa MEDICAID office would have read my complaint before responding. I received an absurd response from the Yaureen Nazdanie which not only demonstrates her ignorance of legal matters but is also factually unsupported:
Thank you for your assistance. My son has been covered by a private insurance provider for years? Is this indicated in his record? Also, I have a court order granting me access to my son's information that state employees do not appear to understand. Moreover, they are violating my civil rights.
Can you locate my certified mail containing leagal documents sent to the Tampa office. Please do not misktake this letter for an indication that I will not escalate the matter. My son's information must be furnished in compliance with the court order.
I have not provided the United Healthcare coverage plan or ID number. What information was updated? Also, what is the proceure for filing a greivance with your agency. Only by the corrupt officials I have adressed would a court order be questioned. The DCF MEDICAID response reads that a safety office has been notified. The ACHA mecaid records I have been provided with indicate that my son was taken to multiple emegency room visits. No follow up doctor visits are noted as required. Where was the safety office's concern at that time?
Could the Tampa MEDICAID official please explain why I have been furnished with records from ACHA however, been denied my son's additional records from MEDICAID?

I would like to register a formal complaint for the failure of a state agency to recognize and adhere to a court order issued by the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit of Hillsborough County, Florida. Please reference the information below. Due to the gravity of the matter, I would appreciate the courtesy of an immediate response. Not a single Father within the agency was sent a carbon copy. I cannot express the adbsurdity of this agencies representatives willfully violating a court order. The allegations she makes are reasons why the court order is in place.
RE: Naureen Yazdanie's failure to comply with Hillsborough County Court Order [08-DR-013201]
I have a court order [08-DR-013201] granting me the authority to confer independently in any matter regarding my son's welfare. The Hillsborough County Court order specificaly addresses all financial and medical issues. Are you stating that you can receive information, but cannot furnish it to the parent? You have not addressed what happened to the missing certified letter containing legal mail.
Your authority does not supercede the court's order. In order to complete open enrollment United Healthcare, whch you are asking for, the carrier requires my' son's MEDICAID information referred to in section (F) as "other coverage". The court order, signed by Judge Catlin, order also details this requirement. However, you state that it cannot be done. You have submitted the required response in order to remain non-compliant and do nothing. What section of the court's order are you unfamiliar with?
As open enrollment has a deadline, I will detail your willful contempt of court. Ironically, in a seperate matter your organization wrote me and stated that they did not have the authority to deviate from a court order.
I have sucessfully obtained my son's records from other agencies after intially receiving the same response. The reason this has not been altered is because the State of Florida does not recognize errors commited by its agents until the press prints them. You will not succeed in your efforts.

In requesting my son’s [Chrisitan Smith 03/08/08] medical information from
ACHA, I was referred to the Tampa area MEDICAID office for further records
(SEE ATTACHMENT). Unfortunately, I am familiar with the systemic corruption
within the State of Florida and its agencies. As a security measure, I
mailed the correspondence with my request via USPS Certified Mail [7011
1150 0001 5557 1802] on November 9, 2011.
Along with the request for my son’s MEDICAID card information as well as a
duplicate card I furnished copies of Hillsborough County Court Orders
granting me access to financial as well as medical records. The Court’s
orders also stipulate that the Father’s contact information is to be
entered into the minor child’s record. The local MEDICAID office continues
to trample on my civil rights in contemptuous violation of court orders in
Case No: 08-DR-013201.
I have provided private insurance coverage for my son for the past three
years. Through my employer, I enrolled him with Blue Cross Blue Shield of
Florida. He is now covered under United Healthcare. I have called and
spoken with different agents as to what information was given to warrant my
son being placed on public assistance. “I don’t know” is the popular
Also, if the Mother is not working, why does my son receive a voucher for
daycare assistance? It is interesting that MEDICAID is associated with DCF.
The Mother’s first child was removed by DCF and made a ward of the state.
The maternal grandmother, while employed as a teacher with the Pasco County
School Board, maintains a relationship with a convicted sexual predator
(SEE David Thomas FDLE website). After the birth of my son, the mother
(Amber Smith), resided with Richard Conway (SEE Hillsborough County Sheriff
website arrest query). Richard Conway was arrested for solicitation to
distribute cocaine while my son resided in the home. I contacted DCF who in
turn stated that I was filing unnecessary complaints. After my complaint,
Richard Conway was arrested again on drug charges. They claim that my
allegations are misguided because years ago an employer supposedly
terminated me. As ridiculous as this seems, the Mother’s lifelong drug
abuse and continuous arrests in several counties are a non-issue. The
contracting agency in the Lutz area (HCSO) has shielded the Mother for no
other reason than gender bias. What is the involvement of DCF with her
newborn? I suppose her issues with DCF years before I met her have to do
with my concerns? The DCF investigator (Agent Rivas) for the HCSO stated that there was
no evidence of drug activity despite arrests and Amber Smith’s call from
DACCO. Furthermore, although regulations clearly read that medical information
shall be obtained when in the interests of the safety of a child, she stated that she would not
obtain or investigate the mother's recent stay in a drug rehab facility. Her main subject of conversation
was her disapproval of my complaint referencing her incompetence to the Governor's office.
I called the local office to report the call from DACCO. The local rep. which Rival knows well stated that I would have to contact the Tampa office. After contacting them I was made to understand that I was "bothering" them and was hung up on.
Since my informing all of you, my son has been to the emergency room twice. Until recently the mother was able to hide these incidents. Only after researching a billing discrepancy for private insurance which I provide did the facts surface. How will Rivas or any of the automatons working for you be able to explain why MEDICAID shows the emergency room visits but does not reflect follow up visits to the registered pediatrician? It is only a factor when the Father is Hispanic and inconveniences the department by asking them to do the job they receive taxpayer funds.
I am under no illusion that your office will do anything. However, years of
supporting documentation, will be furnished to the press if harm befalls my
son. Because the agenda HCSO child services, operated by biased females, is
at the helm there will be no conclusion. Being aware of this does not stop
DCF from continuing to expect the local office to police themselves.
I am not an African American ebonics female welfare recipient. I work for a
living. Therefore the state does everything within its power to strip me of
my parental rights. This includes the ignoring of court orders. In
collusion with the Mother, the Tampa MEDICAID office is willingly
The Governor ran on the platform of cost saving reforms. How about
verifying employment, for the time vouchers were issued, so that daycare
assistance is not given to a Mother simply because she is lazy and does not
want to see to her children? Perhaps someone could explain why healthcare
costs are being absorbed by the state when a responsible parent provides
Please do not insult my intelligence by stating that the U.S. Post Office
has also erred and that you have not received my certified request. By your denial you are not only violating my civil rights but you are also acknowledging that the other state agencies that have furnished me with my son's records have done so illegally.
I would appreciate the courtesy of a response.
