Compliance Monitor, August 15, 2007

CMS is the largest purchaser of healthcare in the United States, serving over 92 million people a year through Medicare, Medicaid, and various State Children's Health Insurance Programs, according to testimony given by Timoth Hill, chief financial officer for CMS, before the House Budget Committee last month.

Medicare alone provides comprehensive health insurance to more than 43 million people. In 2007 alone, Medicare contractors will process over one billion claims from providers, physicians, and suppliers.
