Medicare Common Access Card Would Have Stopped Fraudsters in Their Tracks

Check out this in-depth exposé by The Washington Post on the enormous Medicare power wheelchair scam. The piece blames Medicare's "weak defenses against fraud" as the primary reason for the scandal.

The authors note that since 1999, "Medicare has spent $8.2 billion to procure power wheelchairs and 'scooters' for 2.7 million people. Today, the government cannot even guess at how much of that money was paid out to scammers."

A Medicare Common Access Card would have denied fraudsters before they could even get their plans off the ground, and could have saved much of the $8.2 billion. Tell your senators and representatives to support S.2586 and H.R.3024, the Medicare Common Access Card Act.
