Overview: Healthcare fraud is a growing scourge on our already weakened healthcare industry. Healthcare fraud and abuse costs consumers $85 billion per year, and this astronomical figure does not even include disability, workers' compensation, property and casualty, and life insurance.
As the costs of healthcare expenditures are expected to exceed $1.8 trillion, healthcare fraud accounts for:
  • Between 3% and 10% of the total healthcare dollars spent
  • 20% to 30% of the total dollars spent as a result of abusive billing practices
  • A $400 per household increase in premiums every year

This eye-opening session demonstrates the many ways in which fraud directly impacts both the quality of care and the costs of healthcare. Participants will learn the many different types of healthcare fraud, who commits it, and how they do it. In addition to discussing the risks and repercussions of healthcare fraud, participants will also discover the steps they need to take to prevent healthcare fraud from happening to them, their loved ones, or their business.
