Medical Care Issues Resulting from Medicare Fraud
Fraud has been the most ‘stubborn’ social and economic crisis in multiple fields ranging from education, administration, policing, banking, and marketing. It has now spread into the medical field where there is dishonesty, greed, and underhand practices that lead to abuse of medical facilities by the patients, health professionals, institutions, or the government. The common forms of Medicare fraud include billing for medical services not offered, forging dates and locations of service, forging the name of the provider of services, over-charging patients, over-pricing medical services, false or over-priced prescription drugs, issuance of counterfeit drugs, and other forms of cheating. All forms of medical fraud should be prevented because they result in abuse and misuse of medical facilities which can lead to negative consequences on the patient, society, medical institution, or any other victim.
