    • Medi-Cal pays for the health care of 7.7 million, covering one in five Californians;
    • Generating annual expenditures over $50 billion, nearly one-quarter of the state’s entire budget;
    • Fraud a major problem, but DHCS & DOJ recovered nearly a quarter billion dollars last year, a 400% increase since 2007;
    • U.S. Government Accountability Office estimated California Medi-Cal fraud at over $1 billion a year, and other fraud estimates are even greater;
    • Will expanding the utilization of new technologies, business intelligence analytics, identity management and biometrics improve fraud prevention & erroneous payment recoveries?
