New Missouri AG Koster takes aim at healthcare fraud
Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster has put fighting financial and healthcare fraud at the top of his to-do list. Last year, the attorney general's office received about 1,000 healthcare related formal complaints out of more than 40,700 complaints. They involved medical billing practices (497), healthcare professionals (69), medical products (331) and nursing homes, hospital care, and child care facilities (95.) In the past, that relatively low number of complaints might not have warranted priority status. But Koster plans to change that and will pursue problems for which there may be no complaints, a spokesman says.
