Cracking Down On Medicare Crooks

Posted By Dave Goldstein On May 14, 2009 @ 12:24 pm In Your Life | 1 Comment

Since the cost of health care has gone through the roof, anything that can be done to find some savings in this area should be considered. So naturally when Senators Mel Martinez (R-FL), Bill Nelson (D-FL) and John Cornyn (R-TX) sponsored the STOP Act [1] to prevent Medicare Fraud, AARP loved the idea and endorsed the bill. With billions of dollars being lost to Medicare fraud [2], this bill is a great step in improving the quality of Medicare while also curbing unnecessary spending. Improving Medicare is extremely important, but it is just one of AARP’s many health reform priorities [3].
