Medicare scams

Federal authorities charged more than 100 doctors, nurses and physical therapists in nine cities with Medicare fraud Thursday, part of a massive nationwide bust that snared more suspects than any other in history. More than 700 law enforcement agents fanned out to arrest 111 people accused of illegally billing Medicare more than $225 million. The arrests are the latest in a string of major busts in the past two years as authorities have struggled to pare the fraud that\'s believed to cost the government between $60 billion and $90 billion each year. Stopping Medicare\'s budget from hemorrhaging that money will be key to paying for President Barack Obama\'s health care overhaul. http://finance.yahoo.com/news/111-charged-in-Medicare-scams-apf-602242571.html?x=0&sec=topStories&pos=main&asset=&ccode=
