The New York Times has a story, with searchable database, that should go viral at Mayo Clinic today.
Here's the lede:
A tiny fraction of the 880,000 doctors and other health care providers who take Medicare accounted for nearly a quarter of the roughly $77 billion paid out to them under the federal program, receiving millions of dollars each in some cases in a single year, according to the most detailed data ever released in Medicare’s nearly 50-year history.
Then go to the database, enter your favorite Rochester zipcode (no need to enter a name or specialty) and take a look at how much Medicare paid to some of your friends and neighbors. In 55901, for example, 44 health care providers are listed, the big recipient being Michael Johnston, of Rochester, who specializes in diagnostic radiology, with $226,000.
The bulk of the Rochester listings are under 55905, with 2,935 providers.
