"Wendy Bost, a spokeswoman for Quest Diagnostics, said the company believes its services were priced appropriately."
OH, WELL, THEN. What's the problem? If "Wendy" says it's all good then why is Jerry hassling the poor thing?

I guess I would want to know why the State doesn't have some checks and balances in place to ensure that taxpayer dollars are being spent properly and in compliance with State Law. That this situation has been going on for almost 20 years is obscene, to say the least. It is disheartening that a private lab was the one to discover the problem and then the State jumps in. I am sure the Department of Developmental Services or the Education system could find good use of the hundreds of millions of dollars...dollars that they have now lost providing essential services to the disabled and children.

These kind of scams goes on all the time, and the reason, they are never questioned to begin with. It's a little late after they have got their millions and got to hell out of Dodge City.
