Corruption probably helps pay for "health care cadillacs"

The New York Times, on March 18, reported that New York Gov Cuomo, under pressure, dismissed the state medicaid inspector James Sheehan. It seems Mr Sheehan had successfully recouped $1.5 billion in Medicaid overpayments, the highest recovery rate in the nation. Gov Cuomo replaced him with James Cox, instructing him to collaborate with providers on auditing methods - meaning, be gentle. This moves guarantees that the level of corruption will rise which probably will help pay for the "health care cadillacs."
