Medical System Fraud

The federal government estimates that it's recovered $9.6 billion from health care providers accused of fraud as a result of whistle-blower claims from 1996-2005. The good news is the whistle blowers picked up $1 billion of the amount for having the courage to step forward. Recoveries jumped from about $10 million per case in 2002 to $50 million by 2005.

Greed anyone?
