The wealthy Republican donor who took campaign money as investments from now-expelled lawmaker Jeremy Durham agreed in 2016 to pay $7.75 million to settle allegations he and his brother defrauded a federal military health care program through their pharmaceutical business in Florida.
Andy Miller and his brother Tracy Miller operate Healthmark Investment Trust, Miller and his family own several health care companies and are big donors for some Tennessee Republican candidates. Miller is a supporter of policies that would curtail rights for Muslims in the U.S., and runs an organization described as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
In 2011, Miller bankrolled a trip to Europe for six Tennessee state lawmakers billed as a “fact-finding mission” about the dangers of radical Islam, and he is the founder of the Tennessee Freedom Coalition that has brought Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders to speak in the state.
The Millers and QMedRx are accused of participating in submitting fraudulent claims for reimbursement from TRICARE, a federal health care program for military members and their families, according to a Sept. 13 2016 settlement agreement from the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Florida
In January 2017 Miller announced on his Facebook page that he was relocating to a 1,000 acre property in Comanche County, Kansas.more » « less
