State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says his office recovered over $335 million last year that had been improperly claimed through fraud or abuse in the Medicaid system.

That's the second highest total ever by the AG's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit and the highest recovery in seven years.

Schneiderman says his Medicaid Fraud team will keep working hard to root out fraud wherever it exists and protect the integrity of the Medicaid Program for those who truly need it.
