“The amount of taxpayer dollars flowing through the Medicare and Medicaid programs, along with the complexity of the programs, makes them ripe for abuse. Assisting our clients with the oversight functions for these programs helps to ensure the limited funding available gets used for its’ intended purpose – helping the most vulnerable members of our society.”
