Every year, a small portion of healthcare providers commit fraud.
According to the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association (NHCAA), these fraudulent claims lead to losses in the tens of billions of dollars every year. This then leads to higher premiums and higher expenses for insurance customers, as well as reduced coverage and benefits.
Healthcare fraud can take place in a variety of ways. It can take the form of overcharged services (when a healthcare provider charges for a more expensive procedure than what was actually performed) or unnecessary procedures, and more. Obviously, this causes detrimental results for, not only the affordability of healthcare, but also for patients who are receiving fraudulent care. SLI can help you unravel healthcare fraud schemes.
