Fraud in a fraudulent system...makes sense to me!

When they finish with this, they need to look at the recipients that are commiting fraud also.

No job is complete until the paperwork is done. I know that the paperwork volume for any medical practice has increased dramatically in recent months and years. I know of medical practices that have sold out to hospitals because the doctors said they wanted to paractice medicine and not do paperwork.
Situations such as this should lower medicaid costs but at what cost? If the firm was not filing proper paperwork, they need to be notified and assisted if needed. As we all know, government paperwork can be a nightmare.
Suspected fraud should be dealt with harshly.

I have to agree with claytontarheel. There has been very real abuse by this group of providers and that's the reason for the nitpicking. If less than 70% of the "paperwork" submitted by this practice can be "nitpicked" then the provider needs to get their practice in order. Their paperwork is the documentation to support the services rendered. I understand that sometimes some things slide, but if you're sliding this much you fail.

Sorry about gavin's issues, but the abuse of the system by these types of clinics is well known. I am 100% behind the enforcement.
