How It Affects You

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

Individuals convicted of this crime face imprisonment and substantial fines.
