Remarks by Lanny A. Breuer, Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division, at the Medicare Fraud Strike Force Press Conference
Date:12/15/2009

icted more than 460 individuals that have collectively billed the Medicare program more than one billion dollars.

These indictments have resulted in more than 250 guilty pleas and more than 20 trial convictions, and seek court-ordered restitution to the Medicare program for actual losses exceeding $420 million in fraudulent payments made by Medicare.

There's no question that combating health care fraud is challenging and demanding, especially when our resources are limited and the need is great.

But the breadth of these challenges will not stop us from pursuing health care fraud vigorously.

Together with HHS's health care fraud prevention efforts and the Medicare Fraud Strike Force, we are striking back against the most egregious offenders and deterring others from considering similar illegal activity.

Yesterday and today, 28 people have been arrested in three Strike Force cities - and you can expect more, in the three new cities announced today and as part of our continuing efforts in South Florida, Houston, Detroit and Los Angeles.

Now more than ever, we must and we will use all tools at our disposal to protect these precious Medicare dollars from waste, fraud and abuse.

I'll now turn it over to U.S. Attorney Ben Campbell. Ben?
