Medicare Fraud

Department of Health fraud investigators have reportedly been told to reject Medicare fraud cases amounting to less than $30,000. Instead, these cases should be recovered through administration or through civil legal proceedings.

Despite a spokesperson stating prosecution is considered for all fraud allegations that have sufficient evidence, investigators are said to be angered by the restrictions set in place by the new policy.

A popular example of healthcare fraud involves health practitioners billing Medicare for services they don’t offer. This sort of fraud, if less than $30,000, may become more common and practitioners could evade prosecution if the new policy is maintained.
