7:33 am
genetic cancer test. >> i went on, and i googled senior living facilities. also church groups. >> reporter: she says she makes more than $200 per senior, and that some recruiters are pulling in more than $10,000 a month. >> the genetic testing is thousands of dollars. >> reporter: they pay for -- >> yes. it can be from $2,500 to $10,000. >> reporter: medicare pays the lab, processing the swab, as long as a doctor has signed a test order. so recruiters partner with willing labs and doctors who certify the tests are medically necessary. >> basically pulling people into the labs. >> reporter: once they've secured the saliva sample and the medicare card, they shop it around to labs. >> reporter: attorney bob thomas is a former federal prosecutor who now represents whistle blowers in ongoing health care fraud cases. he says scammers are luring in
7:34 am
looks with a promise to triple their revenue. >> the biggest problem here is kickbacks because the sales force is going out there to the labs saying, hey, i'll get you more busy, but you got to cut me in on it. that's not the way medicine should work. >> reporter: this isn't a half a dozen cases the labs are processing. >> no, this gets into the millions very quickly. >> reporter: our investigation found labs across the country billing medicare tens of thousands of dollars for unnecessary genetic tests. so you see, are you at risk of hereditary cancer -- kevin and judy johnson were at an arts festival in ft. lauderdale last october when they were stopped by recruiters representing a company called genx health promoting the cancer tests. >> i have had colon cancer. >> reporter: so this was like a blinking neon sign, step in. >> uh-huh. >> reporter: six weeks later, $19,000 worth of the charges were billed to their medicare

7:36 am
do the names ken and judy johnson mean anything to you? and with that, he was gone. >> it's tragic in some ways because these folks aren't going to get two bites at this apple. if five years from now they need the legitimate genetic test, they're going to have lost their opportunity for a future genetic test that might be helpful. >> reporter: we followed one dr. canchola, who never did give us the name of his representative. in a statement, the lab that billed the johnsons' medicare account told us it is no longer accepting test requests from dr. canchola. we also repeatedly asked officials from the government department that oversees medicare to sit down with us, but they declined. i not that's an important point -- i think that that's an important point, that the government owes taxpayers some kind of explanation as to how they identify and police potential fraud.

. good morning to you. it's friday, september 13th, 2019. welcome back to "cbs this morning". i'm gayle king with tony dokoupil and anthony mason. ahead the important moments from the latest democratic presidential debate and how they could shape the race for the white house. plus 48 hours, new season. how the broadcast reporting helped solve a series of murders going back decades. and a birthday party for america's oldest living world war ii veteran. >> first here's today eye opener at 8. the latest debate where ten presidential candidates showed
8:01 am
divide between the center and the left wing. >> the national front runner former vice president joe biden, a moderate was sandwiched between two liberal. >> what did you make of the attack on biden? did castro help himself? >> probably not. he assumed the worst about the former vice president. >> andrew mccabe could be close to facing criminal charges of lying to federal investigators. >> the scene we found was heartbreakingly familiar. no cell service, no running water and no power. >> felicity huffman's lawyers arguing she shouldn't have to spend any time in jail. he's asking for probation, a $20,000 fine and community service. speaking of free health care, i hope bernie has a voice doctor because something was dentally off with his throat. >> we must and will defeat trump, the most dangerous president in the history of this
8:02 am
country. >> almost as dangerous as the bumble bee that i swallowed before this debate. >> there's still a lot of campaigning left to do here to save that voice. welcome back. the third democratic presidential debate showed how the party's candidates are divided. health care led the discussion in houston. it pitted medicare for all of bernd against elizabeth warren against the expand obamacare approach of former vice president joe biden. one tense exchange happened between biden and julian castro. >> the difference between what i support and what you support is that you require them to opt in and i would not require them to opt in. they would automatically be enrolled. they wouldn't have to buy in. >> they do not have to buy in. they do not have to buy in. >> you just said that two minutes ago. you just said two minutes ago that they would have to buy in. you said they would have to buy
8:03 am
in. are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago? are you forgetting already what you said just two minutes ago? i can't believe that you said two minutes ago they had to buy in and now you're saying they don't have to buy in. >> a very loud groan on the floor. we asked castro about that comment. he said he was not criticizing biden's memory or age. just his health care plan. we also spoke to young democrats at drake university in the battleground state of iowa about the candidates who stood out to them. >> i love pete buttigieg. i think that he brings the intelligence and the youth to democracy that we haven't seen in forever. >> imagine what would be possible right now with ideas that are bold enough to meet the challenges of our time but big enough as well that they could unify the american people. >> i really like warren. i think she's had a really good stage presence the whole time. >> for hard working families across this country, costs are going to go down and that's how
8:04 am
it should work under medicare for all. >> former massachusetts governor deval patrick is with us. we are very excited to announce that governor patrick is our newest cbs news political contributor. we're so happy about that. he's going to provide his insights to us throughout this 2020 election. there's going to be a lot to discuss from now until november. >> indeed. >> let's start with this debate last night. we just heard what the students were saying about who stood out. anybody stand out to you? >> i think they all had their moments, which is true i think of all of the debates. i thought the openings were particularly strong. i think in every case they offered a vision of unity and how important it is that the country come back together after the election which is almost inherently divisive, but we've had a term of division. >> unanimous groan for julian castro after he seemed to be taking a stab at joe biden. >> i groaned in my hotel room.
8:05 am
>> where did you groan? >> it was unnecessary. there are differences in how the candidates view their policy choices and their policy proposals and that is all fair game. but it doesn't have to be trivialized. >> how do you attack without making it personal? you're trying to make a moment. how do you do that? >> the way we do in regular conversation with people we respect. you have conversation. i do all the time. we all do with people who don't agree with us. what we have to do is project a politic that says we don't have to agree on everything before we work together on anything. >> the vice president got mixed reviews last night. how do you think he did? >> i think he started really strong. it felt over time, and i felt this before about the vice president, about joe biden, whom i really admire and like personally, that he sometimes takes umbrage at being asked questions, at being challenged. that he has such a long record,
8:06 am
it's kind of obvious where he stands on a given policy issue. i think that there's some sort of practice he has to get back into of just relaxing when he's challenged, because that's part of it. >> the last time you were at the table you said the democrats should not talk about president trump all the time but we had amy klobuchar and kamala harris in their opening statements right at the president. what did you think of that? >> we are campaigning against donald trump, so i get that. my point was and still is that he can't be the sole reason that candidates are in the race and can't be the sole reason and objective of the democratic party to unseat him. we have to be talking about what comes after a successful democratic campaign. what is our vision for how we serve not just the people who voted for democrats but for everybody? >> i was going to say is that something medicare for all which
8:07 am
may be yeeoverreaching for some voters? is the democratic too progressive if it forces fepeop to accept a government health care problem? >> i think medicare for all has become a slogan of how we extend health care. they believe everyone should have access to high quality care and the other side does not. personally i think having a private health insurance industry is important to have alongside a government supplied health care because -- not frankly because i care about the insurance industry, but because the innovation that comes from the private sector can be beneficial for how we think about improving government service. >> i thought a recent cbs news poll was very interesting. it found former vice president biden is considered the most presidential, but senator warren is considered the most knowledgeable. which quality do you think is
8:08 am
most important? >> well, th. >> i'm going to say both. look, i think that the president i want is like the president i think most americans want which is someone who is not going to spend their day every day trying to figure out how to divide us but instead of how to bring us together. it has turned out i think that if you look closely there are common feelings of economic anxiety, social anxiety even in these prosperous times that are shared across all kinds of communities in all kinds of places. ways in which people who feel left out and left back, that sentiment is shared very broadly. so i'm looking for someone who is interested in policy but is above all interested in leading us back to -- >> there are at least ten candidates last night that will say that's me. >> we'll have you back after the
8:09 am
next debate and you can tell us if anyone else emerges. this monday we have an american television exclusive. edward snowden, the former nsa contractor leaked highly classified information from the agency back in 2013. monday he'll tell us about his life now and discuss u.s. ivacy issues haven't gone away. right now it's 8:09. time to check your local weather.

michelle kwan, david byrne, coach bob bowman and actor j.r. martinez. santos talks to them about their quest to find happiness and the data behind their positions. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> you created the most popular class. did that make you happy? >> it did. it came with logistical problems that didn't make me happy but it was great. >> now this podcast is going to be a path to happiness for the rest of us. >> not everybody is going to take a yale class. everybody has the s.a.t.s to get into yale but everybody is focussed on happiness, so we wanted to make the insights available to everyone. >> one of the first ones was the lottery. everybody thinks if i could just win the lottery, if i could just do it, it would make me happy. you highlight a guy who won and then ended up taking his own life. you think money, and i only hear rich people say this, money doesn't make you happy, but there is research and science to back that. >> researchers have been looking at this trying to figure out at

what point in your salary do you hit the point that more moint won -- point money won't make you happy. hugh stress people feel, and they clotted that across your salary. if you jump from $10,000 in the u.s. to 20. >> you think people that make 30 think if they make 50 it will be okay and if they make 100, they think 250 will be okay. the real number is what? >> it seems to be around 75 k. . in all these measures you kind of level off which is surprising. >> when do billionaires want more money? >> when we don't have that much money, you're like all of a sudden it feels good. when you're rich i'm still not happy. it just must not be enough. >> why is it 75? that's an interesting number. >> that's just what the data bears out. >> the frustrating thing is just 10,000 above the median income
8:36 am
in the u.s. another interesting finding is olympic medalists, if they're third, they're happier actually long term than the second place finisher. why? >> i think the second place finisher has a salient comparison. it makes them feel good. they're .2 seconds away whereas bronze was i almost wasn't even up here, i feel great. >> you say our mines lie to us when it comes to happiness. what do you mean? >> we have these strong intuitions about what will make us happier. getting a promotion, that will make me happy. you look at people who get that and they're not happy. >> the podcast touches on what you call the psychological immune system. what is that exactly? >> that's one of the reasons we are just more resilient than we think. when bad things happen, all of a sudden they weren't good enough. you lose money in the lottery, i didn't need it anyway. this immune system makes us feel good even when bad things happen. we just don't realize we have it. >> how do we become happier? >> don't focus on things that
