Pearls of Wisdom

Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article concerning a report on the Medicare drug program. The report found that more than 700 doctors nationwide wrote prescriptions for elderly and disabled patients in highly questionable and potentially harmful ways. One out of every four prescriptions written were paid for by Medicare costing $62 billion.
