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.
