Members of the Senate's Finance Committee lambaste Medicare over a largely unrecoverable $70 million sum of over-payments for durable medical equipment.
Medicare has lost about $70 million in unrecoverable sums overpaid to makers of durable medical devices, according to a Health & Human Services Dept. report, and the Senate's Finance Committee isn't too pleased.
A bipartisan coalition from the committee chastised Medicare regulators for allowing million of dollars to "go to waste without a serious effort to recover it," according to a a statement from Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.)
