More than 80 search warrants in 17 federal districts have been served and charges were being brought against two dozen defendants in different states including South Carolina. According to U.S. Attorney for South Carolina, the investigation is one of the largest Medicare fraud investigations in the history of the FBI, the Department of Health and Human Services and the IRS.
