In July, UMH Chief Financial Officer Darryl Caulton filed a letter contesting the inspector general's method for calculating the refund to Medicare, saying the hospital "disagrees" with the way the figure was determined.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the next Governor of the great state of Florida, Darryl Caulton!

Clearly this is all the evidence we need to abolish Medicare.

While I am not trying to say the hospital isn't guilty, if medicare and other insurance companies didn't have crazy rules, this would happen.  In the 70's you could tell medicare that a patient had breast cancer, they cut you a check for $30,000 and that is all you got.  Now, it's a patient has breast cancer, medicare says hop on one leg, fill out form 27A-1245B on a tuesday, and have the doctor dance like a cymbal crashing monkey and we'll give you $130.

/then it's you did it on the 2nd tuesday of the month.  We sue you for $1 million.

It's interesting that when stories like this come up, people immediately get defensive. It seems that they sense the system is deeply flawed and are afraid the public might finally figure that out and want changes.

Too bad at least 50% of the time the solution is abolish, not fix.

It is the GOP way, if your house has mice, burn it down.

I think we should definitely revisit Medicare if it's still unsustainable after we've given the ACA time to make an impact.

But fraud cases like this always seem to take place in the backyards of those who want to cut the program. Sometimes they're even committed by companies owned or operated by the Republican politicians themselves.
