Remarks as Prepared for Delivery By Attorney General Eric Holder at the AstraZeneca Settlement Announcement
Date:4/27/2010

ions stand.  This Administration is committed to recovering taxpayer money lost to health care fraud, whether it's by bringing cases against common criminals operating out of vacant storefronts or executives at some of the nation's biggest companies. 

"The settlement we are announcing today is a major accomplishment in that effort.  It is the largest amount ever paid by a company in a civil only settlement of off-label marketing claims.  The federal government will receive $302 million, and states will share up to $218 million

"Over the past 15 months, we have recouped more than $2.8 billion in health care fraud cases through use of the False Claims Act, money that will be fed back into federal coffers.  In 2009, the Justice Department also reached an all-time high in the number of health care fraud defendants charged, with more than 800 indictments and more than 580 convictions.  Our Strike Forces now operate in seven cities and we plan to expand to more this year.

"These are major success stories with our partners at HHS, but we know that we must not rest – and we will not.  As long as health care fraud pays, and as long as it goes unpunished, our health care system will remain under siege, with tremendous costs to the quality of health care provided in this country and to the nation's fiscal health.  As Secretary Sebelius and I both said when we launched HEAT in May 2009, you should expect to hear from us again on this subject.  The American people expect results, and we are committed to delivering them.

"Before I turn it over to Secretary Sebelius, I'd like to thank the Civil Division for its hard work on this case and its anti-fraud efforts across all sectors
