Types of Health Insurance Fraud
Although it is possible for an individual to commit health insurance fraud by faking pain or a medical condition in order to secure undeserved benefits, the vast majority of cases involve healthcare professionals defrauding the insurance companies through:
Fraudulent Billing: Healthcare providers sometimes bill insurance for services, treatments, or equipment use that the patient never actually received.
Upcoding: Intentionally changing out a medical billing code to replace the service actually provided with a more expensive one is known as upcoding. A pattern of upcoding can be a sign of medical billing fraud.
Unbundling: Sometimes it is more expensive to bill services separately than together. An example might be spreading medical tests over multiple visits. If this is done deliberately to increase insurance reimbursements, it is fraud.
