The greatest health care fraud has already been perpetrated on the American people, it's commonly referred to as Obama care, brought to you by the fraud in chief.

How about over paying for Pharmaceuticals, in 2003 Republicans rammed through the Medicare D plan, which prohibits Medicare from negotiating drug prices, so while the VA can get Liptor for $782, Medicare has to pay full price as high as $1,340. What's worse is that Medicare D was never funded, so not only are we channeling tax dollars directly into campaign donors pockets, we're also adding $60 billion per year to the debt to do it.

People also need to be aware of fradulent Health Insurance companies that sell individual policies with no pre exisiting conditions, low premiums and seemingly great benefits, but they are NOT a real insurance.  There are several companies that keep changing their names and locations, take peoples premiums and never pay out any claims.  Please be cautious when researching and buying individual health insurance!
