Whistle-blowers helped authorities recover at least $9.3 billion from healthcare providers accused of defrauding states and the federal government, according to an analysis of Justice Department records. The Justice Department ramped up efforts in the 1990s to combat healthcare fraud by using private citizens with inside knowledge of wrongdoing, and they now initiate more than 90% of the department's lawsuits focusing on healthcare fraud.
