Missouri Medicaid fraud investigations yield $47 million
By Staff

The state of Missouri opened 205 Medicaid fraud investigations last year and recovered more than $47 million in fraudulent claims made by providers. That's about an average year, St. Louis Public Radio reports. Attorney General Chris Koster's Medicaid Fraud Unit has recovered as much as $100 million and as little as $20 million in other years. The variations are triggered by how much money the state receives from national settlements, Koster said. The federal courts in southern Illinois and eastern Missouri were among the nation's top 10 for prosecuting health care fraud, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
