The waste and scams involving the Medicare system - taxpayer-paid health care for seniors - are estimated to be in the tens of billions of dollars. So the ABC News Investigative Team took their undercover cameras and a producer's 82 year-old grandmother to one of the major hotbeds of Medicare fraud in the country to see firsthand how it can happen. The result was a fascinating glimpse into a world that had, until then, been relegated to government statistics and press releases. Viewers saw how a simple trip to the doctor's office can result in a diagnosis for illnesses that don't exist and expensive treatments that are not needed, all at the expense of taxpayers.
