Mystery Health Care Shoppers, What???

Here is a huge waste of medical resource money. The article discusses the use of "fake patients" to assess medical providers.
It boggles my mind that 35,000-60,000 is used to have these so called patients go into a practice and pretend to have symptoms in order to evaluate it. It's some kind of mystery medical shopping. I have patients who can't afford health insurance or the medications that they need and they are throwing money away like this! Send me the check instead and let me use it for my patients who really need the help and are REAL patients. ARGH!!
