(NPR)   Got Humana for your insurance company? Cool, cool. Hey, I'm sure your rates won't be going up now that they've been found to have committed over $200 million in Medicare fraud   (npr.org) divider line

That's some great CEO-ing there, Bruce Broussard.

$16.7 million in compensation well spent.

$200million? A rounding error, if that, for Humana. $77billion in revenue in 2020. They could shake $200m out of the couches in their Executive Lounge.

If they overcharged by $200 million, what percentage of that will they be fined?

If they were openly willing to attempt to screw the Federal Government out of a quarter of a billion dollars, what do you think they're doing with the private insurance companies and payers?

Medicare fraud

They aren't using the f-word.   For now it's a contract dispute and the only risk to the company is having to repay money it wasn't entitled to.

I would like to imagine the US Attorney down there is preparing the flensing tools but that's really wishful thinking.

Yep. Was just going to ask when the Humana CEO will be running for office as a Republican.

At least with Medicare being a government program this becomes public knowledge.  What they do to private insurance companies remains private.

Deliberate code errors are the name of the game. There is nothing new here.

Make the CEOs personally responsible.

If they can't pay, part them out.

I bet other insurance companies don't commit fraud when they see their fellow CEO being parted out.

If all the insurance companies up and quit out of fear, go single payer.

Problem solved.

Meh. Walgreens overbilled Medicare D plans for years by telling us for years that we couldn't break boxes of insulin pens. Even if a box works out to a 150 day supply, bill it as 90.  Pay the fine, start doing things appropriately, don't give back any of the crap ton of extra money taken in from the years of improper billing.

Were the rates cheaper when they were committing the fraud?
