Medicaid Fraud Uncovered

Posted by alhavakia on September 30, 2009

Fox News reports, “Medicaid Fraud Uncovered” and to the tune of $65,000,000 (yes, $65 million) prescription drug fraud between 2006 and 2007. Medicaid paid for prescriptions for dead people too.

I suspect this is nothing new and has been ongoing for years, well over a decade. And if $65 million was lost due to fraud between the years 2006 and 2007, how much do you think was wasted in 2008 and worse yet – how much was lost this year? This answer most likely will not come until 2011 or 2012.

Is this a growing problem? I would think that is very likely. And if so, how fast if this problem growing in terms of dollar amounts?

Personally, I think this is another example of poorly governed policies, with little to no accountability. The only way to get to the heart of this [yet another] fraud, will be a deep audit that penetrates all the way down the line of every hand that played a part in each fraud case.

If this was done, I am most certain a pattern would be exposed: Department heads, particular problem offices, certain supervisors – in addition to relationships of the people [or their businesses] involved in this fraud, as well as those receiving benefits from this fraud.

While there are 100’s of thousands [maybe millions] of people with legitimate needs, many of whom are put through a meat grinder in an attempt to obtain benefits they truly need and deserve – but too many thieves are slipping through the cracks and creating a burden on the tax payer. Furthermore, these thieves are depriving those who are deserving of assistance.

There are thousands of government offices, with hundreds of departments across this country – rest assured this fraud is one of many problems, yet to be exposed. How many millions of our tax dollars are being lost to misspending and/or fraud? Could this amount be reaching billions?

Do you know where your tax dollars are going? And, are we going to pay higher taxes in future due to this fraud? Did you answer no and yes, respectively? Is this another example of what American Justice has come to?

America, it’s time to get active and involved. Call your Representatives and demand accountability [some real change] – before it’s too late.
