Description

The story uncovers how a "small group of doctors have prescribed huge quantities of narcotic painkillers and other addictive drugs to low-income people on Medicaid, costing taxpayers hundreds of million of dollars and adding a torrent of overdose deaths in the state". The reporter used more than five databases, including autopsy data and Medicaid physician billings.
