The health care industry is one of the largest and most complex sectors of our economy. The amount of money that flows from private individuals, insurance companies and government programs to doctors, clinics and other health care providers is staggering. The opportunity for real and perceived fraud to go unnoticed and unchecked is huge.
The magnitude of the potential for fraud in the health care industry has drawn the attention of law enforcement on both the federal and state levels. Law enforcement is looking for any variety of fraud that may occur.
There are two main groups into which health care fraud falls:
- Doctor or hospital overbilling — This can include when a doctor or hospital bills for services that haven not been rendered. This can include Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud.
- Theft of individual benefits — The elderly and others who need to rely on the help of other people to arrange their affairs may sign a power of attorney to better facilitate that assistance. In some instances, Medicare or other benefits payments, which are intended to cover nursing care or some other kind of care, are diverted for the personal gain of the holder of the power of attorney.
