Healthcare Insurance Fraud- An Alarming Threat Costing Lives Of Millions in India


Healthcare fraud is a crime that involves misrepresenting information, concealing information, or deceiving a person or entity in order to receive benefits, or to make a financial profit. Both individuals and healthcare providers may commit healthcare fraud, in a number of different ways. There are some of the common types of fraud in India:

Billing for services and procedures that were not actually provided to the patient
Providing a service that is not covered under a patient’s insurance policy, then billing for a service that is covered
Falsifying a patient’s diagnosis to justify surgeries or other procedures that are not covered, or are not medically necessary
Duplicate submission of a claim for the same service when it was only performed once
Billing for a different, more costly, service than the one actually rendered, referred to as “upcoding”
Using insurance that belongs to someone else
Staging or faking an accident in order to receive care, medication, or reimbursement for expenses
Failing to remove someone no longer eligible from a policy etc.

Sometimes it is not easy to distinguish whether healthcare fraud has been committed, or an unintentional mistake has been made. For an act to be considered fraud, it must have been committed intentionally, with the intent to defraud. Mistakes happen when an individual, healthcare provider or insurance company accidentally omits information, creates an improper bill, or makes an error in payment. In this case you will need the help of a healthcare fraud investigation agency who will help prove your innocence or reach an administrative settlement or minimize criminal penalties and even identifying the fraud. Otherwise the indicted person may face severe penalties that may include years in prison, steep fines as well as full restitution of wasted Medicaid or Medicare money.
