HEAT strikes in 9 cities

The Medicare Fraud Strike Force (HEAT) just charged 111 defendants in 9 cities, including doctors, nurses, health care company owners and executives, and others, for their alleged participation in Medicare fraud schemes involving more than $225 million in false billing.

This obviously took some serious investigation and coordination.  While some of these providers may end up in jail, it has yet to be seen if the Government can recover that $225 million (doubtful in my opinion--that taxpayer money is probably stashed away in some off-shore account).
