Congressman Shifts Healthcare Conversation to Discuss Massive Fraud

July 1, 2009

Last week the House Ways and Means Committee met to discuss healthcare reform and Rep. Peter Roskam (Republican, Illinois), tried to “shift the conversation” to address the elephant in the room: the massive fraud that plagues the system. As much as 13% of current Medicare outlays are fraudulent,” he said.
Roskam also quoted the Chief Counsel to the Health and Human Services Inspector General as saying, “Building a Medicare fraud scam is far safer than dealing in crack or dealing in stolen cars, and its far more lucrative.”
