Health Care Fraud
What is Considered Health Care Fraud?
Health care fraud is a white collar crime that can occur on both sides of the same coin. From the practitioner’s vantage point, health care fraud happens when they create dishonest filings to help them turn a profit.
Medical professionals achieve this by:
- Billing for services that they never offered
- Filing multiple times for the same service
- Changing dates, descriptions of servces and medical records
- Giving completely unnecessary treatment
Similarly, health care fraud can be committed by patients as well, as members can give false information when applying, sell their prescription drugs on the black market, use treatments for non-medical reasons and lend out their insurance cards.
