The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report today that shows doctors and other Medicaid providers owe billions in unpaid taxes. The GAO has been investigating federal tax abuse since 2003, and this is the fifth report that the agency has forwarded to the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations.

The GAO found that more than 30,000 Medicaid providers, about 5% of those paid in fiscal year 2006, had more than $1 billion in unpaid federal taxes. Medicare providers had another $1 billion. The report cites examples of those providers using the savings to subsidize multimillion-dollar homes and fancy cars and boats. It also cites patient abuse and other violations.

While the GAO report doesn’t name home medical equipment providers, specifically, it cites violators in the homecare and home health services fields.

and Congress took to the report’s steal-from-the-poor-to-pay-for-the-rich theme like fishes to water, as they probably should. Sen. Norm Coleman, R-Minn., told USA Today: “These doctors are supposed to be serving the most needy. Instead, they are cheating taxpayers in order to line their pockets. These are not your everyday tax cheats. These are healthcare providers that receive billions from Medicaid every year.”
