Medicare/Medicaid Financial
In 2006, President Bush signed important legislation aimed at reducing federal spending through deficit reduction in areas ranging from housing to education. This course summarizes the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 as well as its specific provisions, discusses spending projections for Medicaid and Medicare programs, and explains how changes resulting from this legislation have been imposed on taxpayers. The course also provides an overview of the False Claims Act, which helps prevent fraud and abuse committed against any federally funded contract or program. As part of the False Claims Act, Congress also enacted important legislation, the Employee Protection Act, which protects employees who help fight fraud and abuse. These individuals - commonly referred to as "whistleblowers" - are provided confidentiality when bringing action against those in violation of the law.
