Medicare Fraud Strike Force

Yesterday we were informed of 20 indictments in Miami.

Today, we have been infored that the Medicare Fraud Strike Force has charged 111 individuals all over the country with more than $225 million in false billing.

 

Tomorrow?  Who knows what tomorrow brings.

We do know this — these people in the Medicare Fraud Strike Force are on a mission.  911 and terrorists may have provided a momentary distraction from President Clinton’s Operation Restore Trust.  But not any longer. 

Remind your healthcare clients that “everyone is doing it” is no defense (and isn’t true) — after all, “everyone” includes the 131 persons who were caught.
