During his 15-year stint as the nation’s top healthcare watchdog, Levinson oversaw investigations into controversial health issues, including what was described as the largest healthcare fraud takedown in history in July 2017, when more than 400 defendants in 41 judicial districts were charged with participating in schemes involving about $1.3 billion in false billings to Medicare and Medicaid.
