    Things are so bad in Florida, it is widely reported many former drug dealers have gone into Medicaid fraud instead because the penalties if caught are so much lower and the effort involved so much less.

    Durable medical equipment is a perennial favor; many an oxygen tank has been delivered to the an address in the middle of the Miami River. Apparently home health care is the same -- both likely for the same reason, because no medical professional need be involved.

    I think we should allow private practice lawyers to sue for this fraud, and to keep a third of what they collect. If the government can't or won't pursue fraud, let the young turks have at them.

    Everyone is too obsessed about Medicare fraud. Obama is eager as hell to cut Medicare spending and deny our grandparents healthcare, but the Medicaid abuse and fraud is shoved under the rug.

    Just make the penalty 100% of the profit made thru fraud plus any regular penalties.

    If the maximum fine is 100k and you make 1 million...
