Government recovers $4.3B from healthcare fraudsters

The government recouped a record $4.3B in FY 2013 from scammers that tried to defraud healthcare programs, a federal report says.

The amount exceeded the 2012 total by $100M and was more than double the sum recovered in 2008.

The ROI for the investigations was pretty good: the government brought in $8.10 for every $1 spent on investigations.

The increased hauls have been due to new powers that authorities received under the 2010 Affordable Care.
