By Kelly Kennedy

The Justice Department recovered $2.9 billion in health care fraud funds in 2011, according to Vice President Biden. The government was on pace for an 85% increase in health care fraud prosecutions over last year, according to government documents. In fiscal year 2010, the government prosecuted 731 health fraud cases. In fiscal year 2011, the government prosecuted 1,235 cases, a 69% increase over last year, according to the Transactional Access Records Clearinghouse, a non-profit group that uses government documents to track data. This is the highest number recorded since the group began keeping track 20 years ago.
