Soft Medicare Fraud

Not nearly enough attention is being paid to the cost side of medical care in the US. Medicare has always been a target for fraud which then drives up the cost of the program for everyone. Sometimes misuse of the program is less blatant and takes the form of "entrepreneurial" medical practices like those of Prime Healthcare Services. Whether they are guilty of out and out fraud or not, they are certainly gaming the system at the expense of the taxpayers.
