Medicare anti fraud sweep nets 38 people

Good news- the FBI reports (click above) that folks who have bilked Medicare out of millions of dollars are being caught.

"In one case, a company was developing compounded aerosol medications, a process by which a pharmacist makes medicine to meet a special need for a patient rather than dispensing less expensive commercial pharmaceuticals. The indictments state that the homemade medications were prescribed only to defraud Medicare."

These efforts will help recoup money that could be going toward durable medical equipment for real claims.
