Abstract

Fraud is the result of government and insurance company control of health care. The growth of bureaucracy is a precursor to incompetence and soaring costs of medical care. A lack of clinical diagnosis and a dependence on expensive testing has increased costs while decreasing the doctor's competence. The FBI and the attorneys general of all states are dealing with exploding health care fraud. The result is a trillion dollars in waste and deception. Trillion Dollar Scam details the origin of this fraud and waste, and offers solutions to fixing the broken U.S. health care system.
