Medicare, the US healthcare insurance programme for the elderly, has received $2.25 million in government grants to help in its fight against fraud. The grants are financed through the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which came into law last August. They will be distributed to nine state agencies, the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense and the Internal Revenue Service. Medicare will use the grants to cover the costs of audits, inspections equipment, investigations and prosecutions.
