What Is Medicare Fraud?
Medicare helps patients pay for the services of a medical professional.
If a medical professional bills the government for a larger amount than
the services they actually delivered, they could be
charged with fraud. Consequences of such a charge are steep and could result in the loss
of medical licensing, stiff fines, or even imprisonment.
Take a look at some examples of actions that could constitute Medicare
- Prescribing unnecessary medications, equipment, or procedures
- Billing for unnecessary medications, equipment, or procedures
- Billing twice
- Falsifying cost reports or Medicare claims
- Prescription drug diversion
These are just some of the ways that a health care professional may be
charged with Medicare fraud. Miami is cracking down on Medicare fraud,
in part due to the large amount of retirees who take up residence in the
city. These retirees generally pay for their health care services with
Medicare and can be easily taken advantage of.
