Hundreds arrested for $900 million worth of health care fraud
By Joshua Berlinger, CNN

(CNN)The Justice Department announced Wednesday it's charging hundreds of individuals across the country with committing Medicare fraud worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

It's the largest takedown in history -- both in terms of the number of people charged and the loss amount, according to the Justice Department.

The majority of the cases being prosecuted involve separate fraudulent billings to Medicare, Medicaid or both for treatments that were never provided.
In one case, a Detroit clinic that was actually a front for a narcotics diversion scheme billed Medicare for more than $36 million, the Justice Department said.
The takedown: By the numbers
$900 million in false billing

$38 million sent from Medicare and Medicaid to one clinic to carry out medically unnecessary treatments

When these things go mainstream,  it's just the tip of the iceberg.  The war between the elites continue as their soldiers get taken out of play.

Well, I'll naively say, "well, that's a good thing."

Funny when you see the pot calling the kettle black, though.
