MASSACHUSETTS AG RECOVERS $69M IN MEDICAID FRAUD

Photobucket BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (AUGUST 29, 2011) – Massachusetts State Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office released information that it had recovered $69 million in Medicaid fraud during the fiscal year 2011. The previous record was $14 million in 2009.
Since she took office in 2007, AG Coakley’s office has added $200 million in Medicaid fraud back to the state fund’s coffers. The $69 million figure alone represents more than the total previously collected in the ten years prior to Coakley’s tenure. For every dollar the AG’s Medicaid Fraud Division has allocated to its budget, $18 is recovered to the taxpayer.
