Feds charge more than 100 individuals, including doctors, in $452 million Medicare fraud sweep

from naturalnews.com: The government-run healthcare programs Medicare and Medicaid are wrought with fraud, a fact that was once again made apparent in the latest string of busts carried out by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). According to Reuters, 107 individuals -- many of whom are doctors and nurses -- were recently arrested and charged for roughly $452 million worth of Medicare fraud. These individuals, located all over the United States, allegedly submitted phony claims to Medicare for services that were not administered, laundered money and accepted kickbacks, among other crimes. The nearly half a billion dollars' worth of fraud involved represents the largest amount ever in a single raid, topping an earlier record from back in March.
