      Medicare looking to recoup fraudulent payments

      The taxpayer-funded Medicare program paid more than $120 million from 2009 to 2011 -- in violation of federal law -- for medical services for inmates and illegal immigrants.

      The Department of Health finds the program was billed more than $33 million for inmate care and more than $91 million for illegal immigrant care.

      David Williams, president of the Taxpayers Protection Alliance, discussed that and other top tax topics with Capital Insider.
