Medicare paid $9.3 million in benefits to illegals

Over 14,500 claims to nearly 500 people unlawfully in U.S

(Washington Free Beacon)
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services paid $9.3 million in benefits to illegal immigrants in 2013 and 2014, according to an audit from the agency’s inspector general.

“Medicare benefits are generally allowable when rendered to a beneficiary whom the Social Security Administration has determined to be a U.S. citizen or U.S. national,” the audit explains. “Medicare does not pay for services rendered to beneficiaries who are unlawfully present on the date of service.”

I would be willing to bet it is at least double that. Those are the people that were willing to tell the truth. Most fear deportation so they lie about their identity
