This equates to taking a few grains of sand from a dump truck full of sand. When they start removing boulders, I will know they are serious.

Re: Breaking: Biggest Medicare Fraud in the history got busted
not even close to the biggest in history. the current sitting governor of florida (rick scott) ran a healthcare company that paid over 200 million in fines for the fraud they commited under his leadership. the fraud was over 2 billion dollars. of course, let's not let reality stick a pin in the balloon of propaganda. frauds of the level in this thread get busted annually in florida. between the pill mills and the fraud, it's no wonder healthcare is the biggest "industry" in the state. the best part is, if you check the numbers, healthcare corps pay the lowest tax rate among american corporations.

Re: Breaking: Biggest Medicare Fraud in the history got busted
Has anybody ever looked at medicare statements? I take care of my elderly mom's affairs. I worked in accounting for 20 years but I can't make any sense out of the fucking things. She has medicare with Blue Cross supplemental. The statements for both are an absolute bureaucratic nightmare. She gets tons of wasted paper in the mail, and she's relatively healthy - just routine doctor visits.

Actually, his company did it (private sector) then he ran for and was elected governor of Florida, claiming that government shouldn't be in heath care. Don't you see the inherent contradiction in your question?

My mom just got the new medicare handbook and one from the medicare drug benefit provider. The damn things are as thick as phone books - hundreds of pages of useless information that serves no purpose and she gets new ones every year.

Re: Breaking: Biggest Medicare Fraud in the history got busted
Medicare billing is different from "regular" insurance billing and coding. It is easy to make errors/mistakes in the level of service provided and the result can be hundreds if not thousands in overpayments to a vendor/doc/hospital. Most large billers (hospitals and large medical practices) have auditing departments that check and re-check for accuracy. But errors are still made. The normal course is that Medicare notifies the office of a suspected error and you are asked to provide proof of the level billed for or, in the alternative, repay the amount in dispute. You have sixty or ninety days to respond. You do not DARE ignore these seemingly harmless requests for review. If you ignore them, you'll risk triggering a full blown audit. They can audit and go back ten to fifteen years if they suspect intentional fraud. Three years if they just suspect sloppy billing and coding.

I know billers who drive new SL's courtesy of their grateful employers and who's bonus checks every quarter pay for luxury homes and european vacations. And those bonus checks are on top of a base salary of $150/200k per year. There are perhaps 50 in the country at that level and they routinely milk the system for an extra seven or eight million per year. Then they usually split the overpayments with the doc(s) and keep a healthy portion for themselves.

We were approached when I was in practice by a couple of these "super billing groups" that promised us much. I avoided them. Figured they'd get caught eventually. Pity is, most of them are never caught.

What you refer to was the largest fraud settlement in the US. They agreed to pay a 600 million dollar fine.

Re: Breaking: Biggest Medicare Fraud in the history got busted
If anyone know of people who commit fraud against medicare they should be reported. If you don't report it then it continues, that make you part of the problem.

Letting people get by with this kind of thing is why we are in the mess we are in.

People have paid all their working lives into medicare and are still paying on it after retirement, it isn't free.
