Medicare Audit finds 23,000 Possibly Fake Addresses of Health Care Providers

*sigh*….The Free Beacon [1] reported:

“A recent audit from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) discovered more than 23,000 potentially fake or bad addresses of health care providers in the Medicare program.”

“The report [2] sheds light on instances of Medicare providers registering addresses as vacant lots, mailboxes, and, in one case, a fast-food chain that has been located at the listed practice address for years–problems that make the program susceptible to greater fraud and abuse.”
