A new report for the Inspector General found that the Department of Health and Human Services spent $120.6 million between 2009-2011 to provide Medicare Parts B and D to illegal aliens. Illegal aliens are ineligible from receiving Medicare services.

The IG report found that $91.6 million was spent on Medicare Part B, which covers medical and preventative services. It also found that $29 million was spent on Part D, which is Medicare's prescription drug program. The report is a result of "ramped up efforts" by the Inspector General's office after the passing of the Affordable Care Act. The bill strictly prohibits health coverage for illegal aliens.
