Description

This investigation uncovers an insurance fraud scheme based at southern California outpatient surgery clinics. Phoenix area residents -- largely lower-income, uneducated plant workers -- were getting paid cash after agreeing to undergo unnecessary surgeries, while doctors and clinics were able to collect millions of dollars in insurance reimbursement checks. A follow-up describes the extent of the "rent-a-patient" scam and the response of authorities.
