Why can't I ever come across one of these schemes when it gets going, not just at the end when it's burnt out?  I wouldn't be $4.3 mil greedy - a cool $1 mil is all I'd need!

It's remarkable how the media can find disability scams sucking away hard earned $$$ buy never welfare or immigration humbugs.

Medicare doesn't care about fraud.

Had a friend in a bad accident.  His legs were crushed but he died before they could be amputated.  The hospital charged for amputating his legs.  His widow called Medicare and said the hospital never amputated his legs.  She was told that she needed to get the hospital to resolve the issue.  They refused.  Nothing happened.

It's amazing that anyone is ever charged for Medicare fraud, much less convicted...
