In a press conference Wednesday in Washington to address cases charged as part of the Telemedicine, Sober Homes, and Regional initiative, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and other enforcement agencies announcement marks “the largest amount of fraud ever charged by DOJ in a single national takedown operation,” Rabbitt said. Adding, “our efforts represent a continuation of the department’s ongoing work to combat the devastating effects of health care fraud and opioid abuse around the country.”
