Jeff Sessions, Tom Price Announce Massive 412 Defendant Health Care Fraud Round Up - Breitbart: Four hundred and twelve people, including 56 doctors, have been arrested in “the largest ever health care fraud enforcement action,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price announced Thursday.
“This is the 8th year of the health care fraud takedown,” Sessions told reporters assembled at the main DOJ building in Washington, DC.
The main focus of the investigation was false billings to medicaid and other government health offerings totaling an estimated $1.3 Billion in fraudulent profits for the criminals. “As a result of this operation, 295 health care providers are now in the process of being suspended or banned from participation in federal health programs,” Sessions explained.
