Recently I've had some people ask about my role as a patient/taxpayer advocate in the battle aginst Medicaid fraud. For those of you who would like more information about my history in this, I have attached links to the testimony I gave in DC several years ago, as well as some stories Byron Harris ran on WFAA about local problems.
Suffice it to say that Medicaid fraud needs to be stopped at the provider level. Not only is Medicaid fraud an abuse of taxpayer dollars, it also is often harmful to Medicaid recipients. My activism was and continues to be based on my belief that dentists and doctors owe their patient competent care, if they accept the role of becoming that patient's doctor.
