    DC Partner Jay Darden was quoted in a Washington Post article regarding the release of Medicare payment data to the public by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The data, which has never before been released to the public, provides a detailed account of how $77 billion in federal healthcare funds were spent in 2012. “When I was prosecuting Medicare fraud cases years ago, it was often difficult even for us as prosecutors to get Medicare data in a timely fashion,” said Mr. Darden in the April 9, 2014 article. “So the notion that now it’s not only being released, but released to the public, that could very well signal a recognition from CMS that it’s had a problem in the past and it needs to do something about it,” he added.
