Detection approach

  • Common health care fraud and abuse:

    • Billing services that are never rendered,

    • Performing more expensive services,

    • Performing unnecessary medical services,

    • Misrepresenting non-covered treatments as necessary covered treatments,

    • Falsification of patients diagnosis/treatment history.
