How It Affects You

Although a small percentage of health care providers and consumers deliberately manipulate health care claims, health care fraud affects everyone. As health care fraud continues to occur, the cost of health care rises. As a result, employers pay higher health insurance premiums for their employees, and members pay more for health care benefits. Increasing costs of health care may also limit the level of care available to members from their health care provider.

Individuals convicted of this crime face imprisonment and substantial fines.
