SPOTLIGHT: Holder says fraud crackdown paying off

According to Holder--who spoke at a recent anti-fraud summit in Boston--more than $4 billion has been recovered in false Medicare billings from Massachusetts in just the last two years. However, about half of that was connected to a recent settlement with pharmaceutical giant Pfizer that began during the Bush administration. Article
