    Doctor & insurance company fraud

    The latest doctor fraud I heard about was quite ingenious. The doctor asks the patient to cross his legs as the blood pressure is measured by a machine.

    The blood pressure is then artificially high and the doctor gets to have the patient come back over and over again for medication and blood pressure monitoring.

    But wait - this kind of fraud is not limited to doctors. I understand an insurance company used to commit a similar fraud: it asked client employees to measure their blood pressures under stressful circumstances - and then got a higher rate for each person with high blood pressure!
