Letter: Proposed federal legislation would curb fraud, abuse

To the Editor:

Fraud, waste and abuse run rampant in the Medicare and Medicaid systems – costing taxpayers and the government billions of dollars every year.

That’s why I’m pleased to see that U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, has endorsed the PRIME Act. The legislation will help curb fraud, waste and abuse in these systems – and put them back on more stable financial ground.

We need others in Congress to step up to the plate and support solutions that will improve the efficiency of our nation’s health care system.
