As far as I can see the only flaw in the confession is the money Walt payed for medical treatment. Why would a drug kingpin need his employee brother in law to pay a couple hundred thousand in medical fees?
Well, the trouble with drug money is that you can't legitimately use it in transactions (at least to any significant degree) if it hasn't been laundered in some way. Hank wouldn't have been able to pay for his treatments with his salary. So he came up with the cover story of Walt's gambling success to use the money they were making from meth cooking. That's how Walt would spin it, I guess.
