Fraud is a common problem in the healthcare industry, affecting patients, insurance providers, and others who may be defrauded. Not only is healthcare fraud a criminal offense, but it is also a civil offense for which the fraudulent person or entity can be sued.
How We Can Help
According to the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association, at least 3 percent of all U.S. healthcare spending ends up in the hands of those who commit healthcare fraud. This amounts to billions of dollars stolen from the system, wasting taxpayer money, and causing insurance rates to increase.
