Medicare discovers improper payments

Miami Herald, February 29, 2008
Recovery audit contractors for Medicare have discovered $371.5 million in improper 2007 payments to healthcare providers in California, Florida and New York. Some of the hospitals in question, however, have complained that the contractors get a percentage of overpayments discovered and thus unfairly demand refunds for their own profit.
