Common Examples of Healthcare Fraud
Medicare and Medicaid are government-funded programs that support millions of Americans, but in the process, the programs end up paying out billions in fraudulent claims because of schemes such as:
- Miscoding or Upcoding: Healthcare providers assign a more expensive code to the diagnosis, test, or procedure of a patient in order to obtain a larger reimbursement than they should actually receive for the care given.
- Billing for Services Not Actually Rendered: Healthcare providers bill for tests or procedures that they didn’t actually perform.
- Illegal Marketing of Drugs for Off-Label Use: Pharmaceutical companies promote drugs for uses that are not approved by the FDA, which results in healthcare programs being charged for drugs for unapproved uses.
- Providing Kickback to Doctors or Hospitals: Drug companies and medical device manufacturers provide cash, gifts, or other financial benefits to physicians or other healthcare providers in exchange for promotion of their products.
