Study Shows U.S. Gets $16 For Every $1 Spent Fighting Healthcare Fraud

October 24th, 2013 by Qui Tam

According to the organization, Taxpayers Against Fraud (“TAF”), the federal government receives over $16 for every $1 it spends investigating and prosecuting civil healthcare fraud.  This is even after subtracting the amount paid to whistleblowers.

Under the False Claims Act (“FCA”), healthcare fraud cases have grown significantly. Just 62 healthcare qui tam cases were recorded from 1987 to 1992 but 412 were recorded for last year alone.

The FCA to date has brought in over $40 billion since 1986.
