On January 15th, the Nebraska Department of Justice reported that the MFPAU has recovered over $50 million. The recoveries come from a combination of violating Medicaid service providers and drug companies.
According to the Nebraska Department of Justice website, the operating budget of the MFPAU was surpassed by recoveries by 2006. The unit was self-funded successfully within two years. Nebraska will continue to aggressively investigate Medicaid fraud and patient abuse through this successful unit and can be contacted regarding reports of Medicaid fraud and patient abuse here.
