OIG’s Most Wanted Health Care Fugitives List Continues to Grow

Today (March 2), the Office of Inspector General "OIG" announced two new additions to its Most Wanted Health Care Fugitives List. The list, originally released in early February, is described by the OIG as “the first-ever list of individuals sought by authorities on charges of health care fraud and abuse.” The list is meant to increase public awareness of health care fraud, waste, and abuse and involve the public in tracking the fugitives. The interactive list provides the public with photographs and profiles of each fugitive as well as status updates as fugitives are captured.

The OIG’s February press release reports that the ten most-wanted health care fugitives’ fraudulent activities have cost taxpayers an alleged $124 million. Although the list documents only the ten most wanted fugitives, the OIG is seeking over 170 fugitives on charges related to health care fraud and abuse.

The Most Wanted Health Care Fugitives List, including today’s additions, is available here.
