    Fraud Given Short Shrift By Congress in Health Bill

    Culver City CA - December 1, 2009:

    Proving that the United States Congress does nothing but talk about
    defeating fraud and abuse the December 1, 2009 issue of Zalma's Insurance
    Fraud Letter (ZIFL), analyzes the Senate Health Insurance bill presently
    pending and shows that the bill does very little, if anything to actually
    help those who will investigate and prosecute fraud and abuse. Although the
    U.S. Government now admits that fraud and abuse takes more than $220 billion
    every year from government programs the new bills do little more than adding
    to the bureaucracy to find ways to defeat fraud and abuse. It does not fund
    those who can arrest and prosecute fraud perpetrators. It is, ZIFL reports,
    a means to help fraud perpetrators become rich while prosecutors and
    investigators get little or no funding

    To aid fraud investigators in their effort to defeat fraud Mr. Zalma's
    fictional story of fraud by a sweet, little old lady, can be read along with
    reports of recent convictions for fraud including the successful HEAT
    program that - with minimal funding - is putting a dent in health insurance
    fraud and will not be funded by the bills presently pending in Congress.

    ZIFL is available free at <http://www.zalma.com/> http://www.zalma.com
