In 2014, more than 30 people were arrested in the nation's capital on charges related to health care fraud. Those arrested included owners and operators of home health care agencies, office workers, personal care assistants, and patient recruiters. Millions of dollars in bank accounts and property were seized, and the bust remains the biggest health care fraud takedown in Washington, D.C., history. This series follows HHS OIG special agents as they work to uncover the complex fraud schemes, expose the greed of those involved, and bring the criminals to justice. And all of this is real! This is Real is produced by the Department of Health and Humans Services, Office of Inspector General. The agency reminds you that if you suspect fraud, waste, or abuse in any HHS programs, including Medicaid or Medicare, report it to our hotline at 800-447-8477 or 800-HHS-TIPS.

Customer Reviews

great story!

I love this show and the concept. It really gives you an inside look at the work of the OIG. The production is top notch!

Compliance professional

I actually found this very interesting as a compliance professional. There is some explaining of basic OIG processes that wasn’t necessary for me (particularly exclusions), but those who are not as familiar will be educated on why this was not supposed to happen in the first place. It’s a great example for everyone on what poor sanction screening and rampant non compliance can lead to.
