Stop Medicare Fraud
Most doctors, health care providers, suppliers, and private companies who work with Medicare are honest. However, there are a few who are not. The Medicare Program is prioritizing efforts to find and prevent fraud and abuse by working closely with health care providers and strengthening oversight.
Fraud costs the Medicare Program millions of dollars every year, and you end up paying for fraud with higher health care costs. Fraud schemes may be carried out by individuals, companies, or groups of individuals.
