Ohio health care fraud units got back record $103M last year, DeWine says

COLUMBUS, Ohio  — The Ohio attorney general’s office says its units that deal with Medicaid and workers’ compensation fraud recovered a record-setting amount of nearly $103.8 million for the fiscal year that ended last month.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says about $101.9 million of that was recovered by the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, which secured 135 indictments and 121 convictions.

His office says the workers’ compensation unit recovered nearly $1.9 million and had 99 indictments and 100 convictions.

DeWine says it’s important that such funds meant to help the injured and the sick are used as they’re intended. He says more agents have been hired this year to enhance the Medicaid and workers’ compensation units.
