Reducing Health Care Costs – More Good News
By Nancy-Ann DeParle

The Obama Administration is committed to fighting health care fraud and a new independent report shows just how serious we are about cracking down on criminals. The independent Syracuse University Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse examined data from the Justice Department and reported: “Federal health care fraud prosecutions reached an historic high last year. During the twelve months of fiscal year 2011, the government reported 1,235 new health care fraud prosecutions -- the largest number reported since separate tracking of this offense began twenty years ago. This number is up 68.9% over the past fiscal year when the number of criminal prosecutions totaled 731.”
