When doctors met Health Department attorney Stuart Laurence, they usually begin with loud protests of innocence and agonizing tales of self-sacrifice and good works.

By the time the meetings are over, many of the physicians and other professionals who are called in by the score to answer to fraud charges and other abuses of the medicaid program are mewing soft apologies, making promises of good behavior, and are ready to sing checks for restitution.

The twelfth installment of this Pulitzer-prize-winning series about medicaid fraud by New York Daily News reporter William Sherman details the undercover exploits of Health Department attorney Stuart Laurence who often poses as a patient to uncover fraudulent practices.
