Everyone agrees that medical fraud may well be one of the nation's most serious crime problems. But no one had ever examined what the federal government actually was doing to combat it. So Peter Eisler explored TRACFED's data on medical fraud prosecutions and then sought out the responsible officials. Prosecutions of health fraud had indeed tripled in the last few years, but they still represented only 1 percent of the total criminal matters handled by the government. Eisler's front-page article on the subject ran on February 23, 1999.
