When medicare billing falls on deaf ears. As a retired Police officer I am well aware what fraud is. I have had several cases of physician billing fraud, double billing, Exceeding the medicare maximum allowable and find the person assigned to investigate, a private contractor, has no skills what so ever. In as much as a physician cannot bill beyond what medicare allows, the private contracted investigator knows nothing about exceeding the maximum allowable and balance billing the patient. Fraud hot lines sends you in circles then in the end, the person assigned is not competent with existing medicare rules and laws. You need an outlet for people to report medicare employee contractor non-compliance and issuing wrong decisions. I asked one investigator to speak to her supervisor and she just hung up.
