Healthcare Fraud Doesn’t Only Affect the Federal Fisc
According to the FBI, rooting out health care fraud is central to the well- being of both our citizens and the overall economy. Not only does fraud cost the United States tens of billions of dollars each year, it continues to be a rising domestic threat. Why? The cost of health care is expected to exceed $3 trillion in 2014, with spending outpacing inflation. Healthcare fraud includes false claims associated with medical care or services, medical diagnosis and treatment, drugs and biologicals, supplies, appliances, and medical equipment.
