U.S. Charges 91 Over Millions in False Medicare Bills

U.S. authorities charged 91 people with Medicare fraud in a nationwide crackdown, alleging schemes involving $429.2 million in false billing, Attorney General Eric Holder said.

Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals were among those who billed Medicare for unnecessary services and paid kickbacks to acquire patient information for fraudulent bills, Holder said today at a news conference in Washington.
