Medicare Needs Strong Authentication to Protect Privacy and Reduce Fraud

Smart cards are a solution that addresses both fraud problems and privacy issues that currently drain the government-run Medicare system of $60 billion per year. Implementing a secure chip smart card would authenticate healthcare providers and beneficiaries, securely protect patient identification and save billions in abuse and waste, even based on the most conservative of estimates. I talk more about this in my letter in the July issue of Smart Card Talk. As always, thank you for your support of the Alliance.
