Punishing Health Care Fraud — Is the GSK Settlement Sufficient? (Castigando el fraude en atención médica - es el asentamiento GSK suficiente?)

The New England Journal of Medicine
On July 2, 2012, the Department of Justice announced the largest settlement ever in a case of health care fraud in the United States. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) agreed to plead guilty to three criminal counts and settle civil charges brought under various federal statutes; the company will pay a total of $3 billion to the federal government and participating states. Since 2009, the federal government has collected more than $11 billion in such settlements under the False Claims Act.
