Fraud in the health insurance sector can cause substantial damage to consumers, resulting in decreased reimbursement and, in extreme cases, higher out-of-pocket treatment costs, reviews the healthcare experts.

The US Department of Justice, in partnership with other investigative teams, is committed to prosecuting and prosecuting those involved in this illegal activity.

This criminal activity harms taxpayers and insurance customers, who ultimately pay for these false claims through increased costs and premiums. The fight against fraud is ongoing, and we must continue to protect the public by ending these fraudulent schemes. Health 2.0 Conference encourages everyone to report any suspicious activity and become involved in fighting fraud in the healthcare sector.
