On February 11, 2013, the Obama Administration announced that anti-fraud efforts under the Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Program (HCFAC) recovered a record-breaking amount of $4.2 billion in FY 2012. More specifically, in 2012 the Justice Department opened 1,131 new criminal health care fraud investigations involving 2,148 potential defendants, and a total of 826 defendants were convicted of health care fraud-related crimes. The DOJ also opened 885 new civil investigations, obtained settlements and judgments of more than $3 billion in FY 2012 under the False Claims Act, and collected nearly $1.5 billion in fines and forfeitures under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Obama Administration officials emphasized that efforts to reduce fraud will continue to expand with new tools and resources provided by the ACA, including enhanced screening and enrollment requirements (which have eliminated nearly 150,000 ineligible providers from the Medicare rolls), increased data sharing across the government, expanded overpayment recovery efforts, and greater oversight regarding private insurance.
