What Is Medicare or Medicaid Fraud?
Medicare and Medicaid fraud occurs when someone knowingly submits false claims to Medicare or Medicaid to receive reimbursement for services that were not rendered or necessary. This type of fraud can happen in a number of ways, but some of the most common include:
- Billing for services that were never provided
- Upcoding (billing for a more expensive service than was provided)
- Unbundling (billing for each component of service separately in order to receive a higher reimbursement rate)
- Misrepresenting the diagnosis to receive reimbursement for a more expensive treatment
- Falsifying patient records
Billing for unnecessary tests
Laws related to Medicare or Medicaid Fraud:
Health care fraud is combated by various federal laws, including the False Claims Act, Anti-Kickback Statute, and Physician Self-Referral Law (i.e., the Stark Law). A kickback or referral scheme that knowingly submits false Medicare or Medicaid claims is illegal under these laws.
