    Lax scrutiny allowed Medicare fraud to flourish in Miami-Dade

    Eighteen shuttered medical equipment suppliers were allowed to reopen -- and then allegedly proceeded to bilk Medicare out of $10 million.

    In January 2007, Medicare shut down the businesses of 18 medical equipment suppliers in Miami-Dade County after investigators told the federal agency that the companies were shams.

    But when Medicare heard their appeals, the operators were quickly reinstated -- only to be indicted later that year for submitting more than $10 million in phony claims to the very agency that had let them back in business, court records show.

    Medicare wound up paying those suppliers at least $5 million. Despite mostly successful prosecutions, much of that ill-gotten money was never recovered.

    It's the government what do you expect.

    I know - I know. So very hard to believe - but apparently it's true.

    “The characteristic of genuine heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses, fits and starts of generosity. But when you have resolved to be great, abide by yourself, and do not weakly try to reconcile yourself with the world. The heroic cannot be the common, nor the common the heroic.”
