In recent years, the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has undertaken an aggressive campaign to end health care fraud committed by durable medical equipment (DME) companies. In the state of Florida health care fraud is a high priority for government prosecutors. A Medicare Fraud Strike Force was formed in 2007 to investigate and prosecute DME suppliers and clinics suspected of fraud for Medicare overpayments.
