Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says his office's effort to stop Medicaid fraud isn't about dollars.
Last year, the office's Medicaid Fraud Control unit recovered more than $15 million from fraudulent providers. It has recovered $800 million over the course of the program. The unit's staff has increased from more than 40 employees to nearly 80 since Cuccinelli took office in 2010.
