Compliance Monitor, May 13, 2009

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has selected New York’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (NYMFCU) as the top Medicaid fraud unit in the country according to a release issued by New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo.
 
The announcement comes a week after Cuomo declared the NYMFCU recovered more than $263 million in civil damages and criminal restitution in 2008, doubling the totals from 2007.
 
“The New York MFCU's statistical and monetary recovery achievements, in fiscal year 2008, were outstanding and are deserving of special recognition,” HHS stated in the release.
 
NYMFCU will receive the award June 2  at a ceremony in Washington, D.C.
