Former pro football players accused of defrauding benefits plan

While National Football League players are often known to receive large salaries, some struggle with sustainable income after leaving active play. Ten former NFL players are facing criminal charges, accusing them of defrauding a health care program for former professional football players. The 10 men are charged with submitting false claims to the Gene Upshaw NFL Player Health Reimbursement Account Plan. This plan was created due to the 2006 NFL collective bargaining agreement. It provides reimbursement, free of tax liabilities, for out-of-pocket costs for medical expenses for former NFL players, their spouses and their dependents. Each player could claim up to $350,000 in expenses.
