Another bit of bull crap from the State of Florida.
Don't do, as the politicians do....or one can end up in trouble with the law, unlike the sneaky "leaders".
The costs to Medicare, do not stem from the users of the plan. The losses in the system are due to the FRAUD perpetuated by hospitals, medical professionals, etc. The governor of Florida, Rick Scott led the HCA/Columbia hospitals, just as the Feds began to serve warrants for the records showing FRAUD.
Now, Rick Scott is on yet another foreign trip to boost the failing economy of the state by visiting Columbia, where the drug lords have taken over the country.
Politicians have their own way of doing business...self serving usually. Each time, a politician, or government paid worker gets his dirty secret exposed, the citizen/taxpayer gets the brunt of the stinky winds.
