WHAT IS MEDICARE FRAUD?
Are healthcare regulations being complied with at your office? Are your office's healthcare practices and procedures different than those required by healthcare regulations? Are two sets of patient records being maintained in separate locations?
A Medicare or other healthcare fraud case may surface from information given by a disgruntled employee in an employment action. For instance, a healthcare provider may coerce an employee to do some act that the employee knows is unethical, wrong, fraudulent, or criminal, related to Medicare or Medicaid billing, reporting, or cost accounting. When the employee refuses to cooperate, they may be labeled a trouble-maker and fired.
