FLASH: Young Sets American Record for Medicare Fraud Bust

While many eyes have been trained on the professional running scene in anticipation of next month's Rio Olympics, GRC's own Beth Young has been busy in Miami supplementing her hard training with the hard prosecuting. On Friday, the U.S. Justice Department announced charges against the owner of a network of nursing facilities that have allegedly defrauded Medicare and Medicaid of over $1 billion, the largest case of health care fraud in U.S. history.

The national news media has been quick to take notice of Beth and her team's work, with front-page stories in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. Although he declined to comment for the Times and WSJ, Coach Jerry offered this blog exclusive comment on the record-breaking case: "I've been a lawyer at DOJ for 25 years, and I can attest that success as a lawyer is like success as a runner, in that the results the public sees are the product of countless hours of hard work behind the scenes, and Beth certainly put in the work to achieve this great result."
