Homeless used for fraud at three California hospitals

An FBI raid at three Southern California hospitals uncovered "a massive scheme to defraud taxpayer-funded healthcare programs of millions of dollars by recruiting homeless patients for unnecessary medical services," according to a report in The Los Angeles Times. The chief executive at one hospital faces criminal charges, while executives from two other facilities have been named in a civil suit filed by the City of Los Angeles. Additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.
