Health care fraud is not a victimless crime


Check out a new investigative report by USA Today in which Aetna Chairman, CEO and President Mark Bertolini says health care fraud is “not a victimless crime.”

In the USA Today report about suspected Medicare fraud, Bertolini notes that, “In 2014, Americans will pay more than $80 billion for health care that was never delivered or never needed. It hurts real people, real patients, and reduces resources available to care for patients most in need.”
