In its Semiannual Report to Congress, the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) today announced recent successes in the fight against fraud, waste, and abuse. OIG reported savings and expected recoveries of $25.9 billion for all of fiscal year (FY) 2010. The report highlights audit, investigation, and evaluation accomplishments for the second half of FY 2010 (April 1, 2010 - September 30, 2010) and for FY 2010 in total.

Specifically, OIG's $25.9 billion in savings and expected recoveries includes $21 billion in implemented recommendations to put funds to better use, $3.8 billion in investigative receivables, and $1.1 billion in audit receivables.

"Along with our significant work related to a variety of HHS agency programs during this reporting period, we are particularly encouraged by the success of our partnerships with HHS and the Department of Justice through the Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT)," said Inspector General Daniel R. Levinson. "For example, our HEAT Strike Force teams yielded 89 convictions and $71.3 million in investigative receivables in the second half of FY 2010 alone."
