Health Insurance Fraud What You Should KnowHealth insurance fraud represents one of America's largest taxpayer rip-offs ever, costing Americans literally billions of dollars every year.
Due to rampant deception, scams and abuse in the health care system, consumers are forced to pay the price--literally--through escalating medical costs and rising health insurance premiums.
And government programs like Medicare and Medicaid, designed to help the low-income and elderly, represent two of the biggest losers of all.
Health Insurance Scams
According to the Insurance Information Institute, health providers and facilities such as doctors, hospitals, nursing homes, diagnostic labs and attorneys routinely attempt to defraud the health insurance system...with devastating results.
How do they do it? In a number of ways, including:
Billing health insurance companies for expensive treatments, tests or equipment patients never had or never received
Double- or triple-billing health insurers for the same treatments
Giving health care recipients unnecessary, dangerous, or life-threatening treatments
Selling low-cost health insurance coverage from fake insurance companies
Stealing medical information and using it to bill health insurance companies for phantom treatments
If health insurance fraud knocks on your door, these types of scams may leave you with medical debts, damaged credit ratings, falsified health records, a high level of stress and overpriced health insurance premiums...or the inability to get any health insurance at all.
So what can you do about it?
Report it; then fight back!
What to Watch For
The first step to fighting health insurance fraud is keeping your eyes and ears open for abuse.
Be especially watchful for providers who:
Charge your health insurance company for services you never received or medical procedures you don't need
Give you prescriptions for controlled substances for no justified medical reason
Bill your health insurance company for brand-name drugs when you actually get generics
Misrepresent cosmetic or other health care procedures not usually covered by health insurance plans as covered
If you notice a health care provider doing any of these things, keep all supporting paperwork handy for reference, and then contact your health insurance company to let them know.
Then, if you're a Medicare or Medicaid recipient, call the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services and report the abuse.
Finally, contact your state department of insurance or the local police.
Fighting Health Insurance Fraud
To keep yourself from falling victim to health insurance fraud, take the following steps to fight back:
* Check with your state insurance department to make sure your health insurance company is licensed in your state.
* Check out your health insurance company for consumer complaints, fraud convictions and bankruptcies through your state department of insurance.
* Keep detailed medical records.
* Carefully review your billing statements.
* Never sign blank insurance claim forms.
