Inside a $200 million health-care fraud scheme

$200 million blood & bribery scheme

Federal investigators say a small blood lab in New Jersey paid doctors kickbacks to send blood work to the lab as part of a $200 million health-care fraud scheme.

"There was an excess of a dozen doctors who actively participated in the scheme like there was nothing wrong with it," according to Scott Lampert, special agent in charge at Health and Human ‎Services. "This was in excess of a $200 million health-care fraud scheme—one of the largest that I've ever seen," Lampert said.

The lab's top guy, according to investigators, was making so much cash that he dropped millions on items including vintage cars, fancy homes—and more. Go inside the health-care fraud scheme.
