Indiana Attorney General Attorney General Todd Rokita announced a significant victory in the fight against healthcare fraud last week.

The crackdown, led by the Attorney General’s Office Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, resulted in multiple charges against individuals and entities allegedly involved in fraudulent schemes.

“The Medicaid program was created to provide needed medical care to disabled and low-income Hoosiers,” Attorney General Rokita said. “Instead, too many unethical providers steal Medicaid funds and resources to serve their own selfish interests. Our team of lawyers and investigators will keep pursuing and prosecuting lawbreakers who illegally try to defraud the system.”

In the 14 cases, the Indiana Attorney General’s MFCU investigated licensed healthcare professionals and Medicaid providers suspected of illegal activity. 

In 13 of the 14 cases, Attorney General Rokita’s attorneys are prosecuting the alleged crimes with assent from the local prosecutors’ offices in the counties where the crimes occurred. 

These investigations are part of a nationwide initiative led by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
