Senator SCULLION (6:14 PM) —I have the words that we are about to circulate; in fact, I have stolen the words of someone who is writing the amendment down to be circulated. I thought that, if I could read it out, at least Senator Siewert might then have some clarification. The words to insert are:

In other words, this is not about whether you are good at being a doctor; this is all about the fraud aspect of it. So it is just ensuring that Medicare does not go into an area that was not intended.
