Medicare pays, even if providers do not

Washington Post, June 20, 2008
Healthcare providers are allowed to collect millions of dollars in federal Medicare payments each year despite owing the government more than $2 billion in back taxes, according to the Government Accountability Office. The office found that more than 27,000 providers flouted the tax system while collecting Medicare fees in 2006. That represented 6% of all providers in the Medicare program.
