False Claims Act Recoveries, 1999-2003

From the Jan. 30, 2006, issue of MANAGED CARE WEEK:

False Claims Act recoveries have surpassed $17 billion since 1986, according to Taxpayers Against Fraud (TAF). Nearly $1 billion was recovered in the first quarter of fiscal year 2006 alone, the organization says. . . . Large False Claims Act cases involving health care in the first three months of FY 2006 include a $704 million settlement with Serono Inc. for the allegedly illegal marketing of Serostim, a $124 settlement with King Pharmaceuticals, a $40 million settlement with Erlanger Medical Center in Tennessee and a $62.55 million settlement with Tenet Healthcare. According to a report released last year by TAF, the federal government's net recoveries from civil health care fraud cases were $5.21 billion between 1999 and 2003.
