Mother In Laws affairs after she went into a Elder care program. Totally nuts. Hundred dollars billed to Medicare for one friggin Aspirin which she was not to receive. And that was just the start. Talk about legal theft from the Taxpayers. Her case became a test case against a major Nursing home provider which the State of Minnesota won and the Company paid a mega fine and was forced to sell to another firm.

Talk about padding the expense bill.
