Medicare Improperly Paid for Immigrant and Inmate Care

Medicare paid more than $120 million from 2009 to 2011 in violation of federal law for medical services for inmates and illegal immigrants, according to two reports issued Thursday by federal health officials. The program was billed for more than $33 million in inmate care and more than $91 million in illegal-immigrant care over that period, according to the reports from the Department of Health and Human Services inspector general... The reports recommend that federal health officials establish a better system to automatically flag charges for inmates and illegal immigrants to stop illegal payments before they are made.

The tipping point is fast approaching.
