Millions of seniors and the disabled rely on Medicare to pay the doctor bills. But the program costs so much it may one day run out of cash. A plan to cut the rates doctors can charge Medicare has been tabled amid fears it would shrink the pool of Medicare doctors. But new efforts to root out fraud that bleeds 60 billion a year from Medicare are moving forward in Cleveland and eight other pilot cities. Will that keep Medicare healthy? A Medicare checkup, tomorrow at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
