Health Care Fraud and Opioids

Source: Daily National Journal

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners reported “In May, (2012) U.S. authorities charged 107 people — including doctors, nurses and other licensed medical professionals, for allegedly trying to defraud Medicare of about $452 million, the largest Medicare fraud sweep to date. “Health care fraud shows no sign of abating,” said Dr. Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA, founder and Chairman of the ACFE, during his recent keynote message at the 23rd Annual ACFE Fraud Conference & Exhibition.”

Jacqueline LaPointe of Recycle Intelligence reported, “June 28, 2018 – The HHS Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and Department of Justice (DoJ) recently announced the largest healthcare fraud take down to date, with over 600 defendants charged with participating in fraud schemes amounting to about $2 billion in losses to Medicare and Medicaid.” Can you recognize health care fraud?

Blue Shield Blue Cross of Illinois on Health Care Cost

Blue Cross Blue Shield: What’s behind Healthcare costs
Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

It is informative to hear how health insurance providers state health insurance money paid by them is spent. Behind health care insurance and payments can also be a substantial amount of fraud from the procedures that are recommended and the pharmaceuticals that are prescribed. In fact, NCSL (National Conference of State Legislatures) states that ” Health Care Fraud Is Costly. Health care fraud costs insurers anywhere between $70 billion and $234 billion each year, harming both patients and taxpayers.”

How can you reduce the cost of your health insurance premium? Blue Cross Blue Shield states that contributing to the high cost of insurance premiums are those individuals with chronic disease. This could be as a result of a disease being managed and not treated to cure the disease. Do you have a chronic disease? Have you explored all avenues for a cure?
