Abstract

There is a growing severity of the nation’s healthcare fraud problem and a need to address it effectively through a cooperative approach involving both the private and public sector. Education and practical training in the detection, investigation, prosecution and prevention of healthcare fraud and sharing information among private payers and with law enforcement. Public Policy attention and changes in our healthcare system are influencing anti-fraud activity. Increasingly, state legislatures are mandating certain standards of formal anti-fraud efforts in which health insurers must engage. At the federal level, there is a great likelihood that some meaningful legislation will be enacted. The actual success and impact on fraud activity will be measured longitudinally, over a period of time and demonstrate successful outcomes. Ongoing efforts are important to the curtailment of fraud in order to ensure decreased fraudulent behavior. This paper supports the need for anti-fraud activity and consideration.
