IMHO, MCR/MCD fraud means someday in 2013/2014 HMA will be forced to write a big fat multi million check to the fed like Quest and Labcorp had to / will have to.
Who else do you think profited from all those lab tests trying to show medical neccesity for admissions and covering the a__ of the admitting MD's, IMO. How low can it go?
I would say it will go to book ($3.67 per Yahoo) except they have all that debt and of course now another huge potential liability. They have 71 cents in cash, maybe that is near the floor? Probably Chapter 11 and a stock price of zero is the best option. My guess is zero.
