In 2010 the auditors found $6.7 billion fraud in Medicare. That’s an emergency! Fix it today! But not to Medicare and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
CMS said: Oh, year. We heard about it, but it wasn’t worth the bother. Oh, that’s not what they say. They say it is not cost effective.
$6.7 billion! The Medicare/CMS management doesn’t care enough to do anything about it. Their careers don’t depend on stopping fraud. Fraud in the billions every year.
And ProPublica did their own study of the data.
