Health Care Fraud Alert: HEAT in Action

The Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT), the joint taskforce announced by the Department of Justice and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) last month, is already achieving results. Fifty-three people were indicted in Detroit this week for allegedly submitting over $50 million in false Medicare claims. These indictments resulted in arrests not only in Detroit but also in Miami and Denver on various charges, including conspiracy to defraud Medicare, submission of criminal false claims, and violations of the anti-kickback statute.
