Fraud, Waste and Abuse

Healthcare fraud, waste and abuse affects everyone. Combating it begins with awareness.Fraud is committed when a dishonest provider or consumer intentionally submits, or causes someone else to submit, false or misleading information for use in determining the amount of health care benefits. Waste is the over-utilization of services not caused by criminally negligent actions and the misuse of resources. Abuse is provider practices that are inconsistent with professional standards of care: medical necessity, or sound fiscal, business, or medical practices and provider or beneficiary practices that result in unnecessary costs to the healthcare program.

  • Billing for services not rendered
  • Upcoding (billing for more expensive services or procedures than were actually provided or performed)
