Doctors get millions from Medicare after losing their licenses

Bloomberg, April 29, 2014
The first time cardiologist Robert Graor lost his Ohio license to practice medicine was in 1995, after he was convicted of 10 felony theft counts for embezzling more than $1 million from the Cleveland Clinic and sentenced to three years in jail. The second time was in 2003, after he'd won back the license following his release from prison. This time, the Ohio Board of Medicine found he repeatedly misrepresented his credentials over a two-decade period and permanently barred him from practicing medicine. That didn't stop Graor from participating in Medicare, the government's health insurance program for the elderly and disabled.
