Medicare scam

headache“Federal prosecutors on Tuesday said they dismantled one of the largest health care fraud schemes ever investigated by the FBI, charging 24 people in a $1.2 billion alleged scam involving telemedicine and durable medical equipment companies.”

“The IRS chief of criminal investigation, Don Fort, said in a statement that the organized scheme “details broad corruption, massive amounts of greed, and systemic flaws in our healthcare system that were exploited by the defendants.”

We have been getting these robocalls for months if not years. Why are our laws so weak; why did it take so long?
