The Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates that tens of billions of dollars are lost every year due to fraud in the healthcare industry.
Medicare is considered at particularly “high risk” for fraud due to the complex and widespread reach of the program.
Some of the most commons forms of healthcare fraud are:
- Medical identify theft
- Stolen beneficiary payments
- Billing for unnecessary services or products, or for services or products not rendered
- Upcoming, or billing more for services that were actually provided unbundling
- Kickbacks to providers or medical centers that make referrals
