My aunt is an RN and during the later part of her career she worked for medicare investigating nursing home fraud.
So did she work for a particular office in Medicare? Can you elaborate?
Thanks for all the feedback. I was hoping I could be self employed, investigate, and report those who do commit fraud. The government could pay me in some way.....and it would be a 'win win' situation.
My mother actually works in Medicaid. She says they go above and beyond to NOT take benefits away or prosecute for fraud. In her 20+ years, she could only remember one instance where a client was charged, tried, and convicted. "The Government just turns a blind eye to fraud....as if theres too much effort involved" . So, I can make it easy for them......be glad to!
I know they have a "whistleblower" program...but its for providers committing fraud. Uncle Sam is more interested in chasing providers than patients.
And, yes there are definitely ones who deserve help & likely more than what they actually get. Sadly, I have learned, the ones who really need the help..........dont get it.
