A guide to health fraud and related litigation and regulatory cases. Run by Stephen Barrett, MD, and Robert S. Baratz, M.D, DDS, PhD. The site is a clearinghouse to help consumers, attorneys, government enforcement officials, and other interested parties locate documents and pursue cases related to health fraud.

Health-care providers and vendors are regulated and policed by a diverse network of agencies, bureaus, departments, and boards. Findings of these enforcement agencies can range from disciplinary actions by licensing boards to seizures of illicit devices and criminal prosecutions by governmental agencies. Private lawsuits offer an additional opportunity to address wrongdoing. Although many such activities are reported on Web sites and in specialized publications, obtaining them can be difficult, time-consuming, and sometimes expensive. Records collected on the site involve false or inflated health claims for products and services.
