"A New Face in Labor Racketeering" looks at health insurance fraud targeting small companies or labor unions whom the larger insurance companies refuse to cover; racketeers set up phony insurance plans known as MEWA or Multiple Employee Welfare Benefits Plans, which are minimally regulated; racketeers defraud workers by charging for insurance then making off with the cash.
