HHS and DoJ just announced that they are standing up Medicare Fraud Strike Force HEAT teams in Chicago and Dallas. The Houston office has done great work, let's seat if the Dallas team can match the Houston team's success. But you have to wonder why HHS and DoJ are just now getting around to mobilizing a HEAT team in Chicago. My Chicago qui tam lawyer friends tell me that Chicago is notorious for health care fraud. But is that really a surprise anyone?
