Seems to be everywhere.
I went to UNR in 93 to 95.

www.lasvegasnow.com...


The auditors found that billing errors, including overbilling of third party insurers, were rampant. Some doctors committed errors 50 percent of the time, 80 percent of the time, 90 percent of the time.

The audit was inspired, in part, by whistleblowers, resident doctors who reported blatant acts of fraudulent billing. Why didn't the audit confirm those allegations? In a 2016 memo, UNR School of Medicine Dean Thomas Schwenk explained it this way -- this audit looked for coding errors. It would not be able to identify the alleged misconduct. (June 17, 2016)

This audit found billing errors across the board, but, by design, it was never going to uncover the kind of outright fraud which had been alleged by employees. In the words of one physician whistleblower, they didn't want to find fraud. The audit found many mistakes, but it was a smokescreen.

Cushy jail time isn't enough of a deterrent anymore. Start putting these guys on death row.

Actually, its fairly fricking obvious who's honest these days.

They're usually the ones who're busting their arses every day for an honest dollar, living pay check to pay check, while been shunned by their peers.

Its the people living on easy street who seem to have a lot of people looking out for them, who you want to be wary of...

Who isn't doing their job to monitor and verify the charges and money flow. That sun of money doesn't happen in a few months or years.

The entire system is corrupt. When a hospital charges $80 for a box of tissues, how is that not a crime?

And lets not forget the Mental Health clinic owner in Wisconsin who received something like over 95% of all CMS (medicaid/medicare) reimbursements in the entire state for the Mental Health specialty. I think I read about this only a few months back.
