A few doctors learn how to be Medicaid millionaires
Modern Healthcare

While most doctors spurn the Medicaid program because of low fees, a select few manage to pull in millions of dollars each year by running high-volume practices.

Ten doctors in Illinois were paid at least $1 million a year from the health care program between 2009 and 2011, according to a Crain’s analysis of state payment records.

The totals for some of the highest-paid physicians are boosted by payments for services performed under their supervision.
