Multi-state Medicare Fraud Crackdown Focuses Attention on Recovery Payoffs to Defray Health Reform Costs
Date:8/5/2009

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- In the aftermath of 32 recent arrests for Medicare fraud in Houston, Boston and Miami, discussions are now focusing on how massive recoveries by the government can significantly help defray the costs of current health reform initiatives. This latest sweep was the third in two months. All told, 145 people have been arrested and the government has recovered more than $370 million.

On July 29, PBS news correspondent Jeff Yastine interviewed Marcella Auerbach for his broadcast news segment titled, "Dozens Arrested for Medicare Fraud," which aired nationally during the nightly newscast. A former federal prosecutor who is now managing partner of Nolan & Auerbach, P.A., Ms. Auerbach pointed out that, with the Federal government's strengthened efforts to fight Medicare fraud in particular, the system has received a $15 return for every dollar spent on investigations and prosecution.

As Congress wrangles over the cost of President Obama's health reform proposals, the beneficial financial impact of increasingly aggressive enforcement will be an important part of the ongoing debate.
