Holder, Sebelius tout billions in healthcare fraud recoveries

The Hill, February 26, 2014
The U.S. recovered $4 billion last year through healthcare fraud prevention and enforcement efforts, according to a report released Wednesday by Attorney General Eric Holder and Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The report says that the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Act (HCFAC) recovered more than $8 for every $1 it spent on healthcare fraud investigations over the last three years, the best ratio in the 17-year history of the program. The joint effort between the Department of Justice and HHS has recovered more than $19 billion over the last four years, the agencies said.
