The DOJ’s annual bust identified $6 Billion in fraud
2020 is almost over. And most of us couldn’t be happier. But before we welcome a brand new year, we thought we’d take one last look at the trends we saw via DOJ enforcement, to better understand what to expect in the new year ahead.
Looking back, this year has been anything but normal, yet one thing remained unchanged: the annual coordinated bust announced by the DOJ and its sister agencies like the HHS OIG.
Of the more than $6 billion in alleged fraud losses reported was the largest healthcare fraud and opioid enforcement action in Department of Justice history. The breakdown of the financial losses included more than $4.5 billion connected to telemedicine, more than $845 million connected to substance abuse treatment facilities, and more than $806 million connected to other healthcare fraud and illegal opioid distribution schemes across the country.
