Medicare Millionaires Totaling Almost 4,000 Seen in Data

Bloomberg reports:
Medicare paid almost 4,000 doctors and medical professionals more than $1 million apiece in 2012, including seven who received more than $10 million. Eye doctors were among the highest compensated, including one Florida ophthalmologist paid $21 million in 2012.

The disclosures were gleaned from $77 billion in payment data released by the government this morning that provides the first look at Medicare payments to physicians in more than three decades.
Guess who likes the government involved in medicine?
