Common Forms of Healthcare Fraud

Healthcare fraud is a federal crime that entails filing a claim for financial gain or some sort of benefit. Although it is possible for someone accused of healthcare fraud to be charged with Virginia state penalties, most cases of healthcare fraud involving Medicare or Medicaid will result in federal charges.

The most common forms of healthcare fraud include:

  • Medical billing errors
  • Overbilling for medical services
  • Inflating costs for medical procedures
  • Charging for services the patient failed to receive
  • Performing unnecessary medical procedures
  • Falsifying diagnoses patient records
  • Accepting or offering kickbacks for patient referrals

Healthcare fraud carries extremely harsh penalties. For example, making a false claim or statement on a Medicaid or Medicare claim is federal offense, punishable by a maximum federal prison term of 10 years and a fine of up to $500,000 per offense for individuals, while groups can be fined up to millions or billions of dollars. If a healthcare fraud leads to another person’s serious injury or death, then a conviction can result in federal imprisonment for up to 20 years.
