A Senior Moment: Health care fraud is rampant

A Senior Moment: Health care fraud is rampant - Chico Enterprise Record:

"Medicare fraud

Medicare fraud comes in many forms. Sometimes health care providers bill Medicare for services that were not performed, or bill for a higher level of service than was actually performed. In some cases charges are made for services that were unnecessary and costly. Some doctors have been known to sell prescriptions to patients for cash. Other unscrupulous doctors have lured patients to visit their offices for free services or gifts and then have stolen their insurance information and used it to file false claims.

A supplier can bill Medicare for equipment that was not needed or may charge for expensive equipment when a cheaper item was substituted. Some providers may bill Medicare for home medical equipment after it has been returned. The doctor for another one of my aunts who lives in assisted living was sending bills to Medicare for a piece of equipment that had sat in her room unused for nine months."
