Business Week reports that "after an extensibve investigation into the rapidly expanding home health-care industry, Business Week found rampant fraud and abuse. Problems ranged from financial scams ripping off millions of dollars from Medicaid and Medicare to instances of neglect and abuse of elderly or incapacitated patients by untrained, unqualified, or unlicensed home-care workers. Business Week discovered that many of the problems uncovered are an outgrowth of lax federal and state regulations and too little oversight of comapanies' practices, and ineffective industry groups."
