U.S. will
launch
Medicaid
fraud probe
WASHINGTON :A' - The
government soon will soon
launch its first nationwide probe
of fraud and abuse in the Med-
icaid program, which loses an
estimated billion dollars yearly
because of unwarranted pay-
ments to doctors, pharmacists
and other providers of health
care for the poor,
The probe is to be headed by
Tom Morris, the new inspector
general of the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.
Administration sources say Mor-
ris is now trying to round up
support among state and local
officials for a cooperative cam-
paign.
Yesterday, a spokesperson for
Morris confirmed reports of the
plan and said doctors and
pharmacists will be special tar-
gets because a recent study in
Massachusetts indicated "the
greatest return" in financial
terms can he expected by con-
centrating on those two groups.
Nursing homes, laboratories,
clinics, hospitals and dentists
who hill Medicaid for care they
give the ponr also will get con-
titng scrutiny, the spokesper-
son said.

GOV. WILLIAM MILLIKEN speaks to reporters at a press conference yesterday. Milliken said he supports a bill currently be-
fore the House raising the drinking age in Michigan to 29.

Milliken says he'll
increaseddrinking

LANSING (UPI) - Gov. Wil-
liam Milliken yesterday broke
his long silence on the question
of raising Michigan's legal
drinking age, saying he sup-
ports a move in the legislature
to hike it to 19.
The governor, however, gave
the proposal a less than whole-
hearted endorsement, saying it
was not the whole answer to
teenage school drinking prob-
lems.
"I COULD accept the 19-year-
old drinking age," Milliken
told reporters at an informal
news conference in his office.

"But I don't think that solely
will deal with the problem."
Legislation which cleared the
Senate this week and is await-
ing House action would raise
the legal drinking age from 18
to 19 this Dec. 1 for a three-
year test period.
P R O P O N E N T S of the
change say it would help elim-

Milliken said that although
he is willing to support the leg-
islation, the schools should take
seriously their responsibility to
supervise students and enforce
rules.
The governor said he would
not back any move to raise the
legal quaffing age higher than
19.
He conceded that "it's diffi-
cult" to reconcile his support
of the higher drinking age with
his long - standing endorsement
of 18-year-old adulthood.
The bill now before the House
would effect only young people
who turn 18 after Dec. 1.
