Fraud, waste and abuse
Health care fraud costs billions of dollars each year. It impacts all of us in the long run. Health care fraud leads to:
- Higher health care costs
- Limited health care resources
- Lower consumer confidence in our health care system
Examples of health care fraud include billing for:
- A service that was never performed
- A more expensive service, supply or piece of equipment other than what was really provided
- The same service twice
