Seniors may have to pay for Medicare home health - Yahoo! News First bolded: wouldn't coordinating the system across counties be another way to solve the problem? Second bolded: "In some counties home health admissions exceed the number of residents on Medicare". Who is perpetrating the fraud? It doesn't sound like Medicare patients are, if the admissions exceed the number of residents on Medicare. So the conclusion would be that it is those who are either doing the admissions or someone(s) else within the system? Which brings me to this Third bolded: "The charge would be collected for each home health agency admission". It would appear that fraud is coming from within the system and it is known that there are home health admissions exceeding the number of residents on Medicare, so to solve the problem they want to charge those who are not causing the fraud . . . those on Medicare? Am I reading this wrong?
