Opinion: Medicaid Bailout Must Be Tied to Fraud Reform
In an opinion piece, Newt Gingrich -- founder of the Center for Health Transformation and former speaker of the House of Representatives -- and Jim Frogue, state project director at the Center for Health Transformation, argue that a Medicaid bailout should require fraud-fighting reforms. They cite a study that found that the New York Medicaid program loses more than $20 billion annually to fraud and abuse.
