A Fraud Investigation Can Happen to You.The federal government relies on health care professionals and providers to submit accurate and truthful claims. However, dishonest health care professional and providers exploiting the system for illegal personal gain have created the need for fraud and abuse laws. Health care providers and professionals servicing Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries are at risk for increased scrutiny, auditing activity and overpayment demands from the government. As a medical provider in a state that has become infamous for allegations of health care fraud, Florida health care professionals and providers are particularly at risk.This lecture will cover the different organizations, such as Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) and Zone Program Integrity Contractors (ZPICs), that can conduct an audit. The presenting attorneys will also address specific actions or claims that can trigger a fraud investigation and how to properly respond to a Medicare or Medicaid audit.
