About friggin' time. We need to see more busts on those who abuse the system.

Medicare fraud sting results in 91 arrests nationwide
Federal investigators announced Wednesday they charged 91 people in eight cities with attempting to bilk Medicare out of $295 million in what Attorney General Eric Holder called the biggest takedown in Medicare task force history.

The cases in the coordinated nationwide strike consisted of billing for services never provided, money laundering, providing kickbacks for Medicare beneficiary numbers, and, in one case, threatening Medicare recipients that they would lose their housing if they did not participate in a scheme in Miami. More than 400 agencies participated in the sting.

Yikes, DivineWind. That's an average of around $3,241,758. per person. I hope they catch anyone who cheats all of us through such malicious thefts as to raid the public treasury. That's as bad as stealing from a church plate, except it looks like a lucrative deal for crooks.
