Medicare Fraud Examples

Medicare fraud accusations come in many shapes and forms.

Who can be accused?

  • Healthcare providers
  • Suppliers
  • Individuals
  • Companies / employers

What are some examples of Medicare fraud?

  • Healthcare providers can be accused of billing Medicare for made-up services. If Medicare believes the patient never received the services the healthcare provider claims, this could warrant a fraud allegation.
  • Medical equipment suppliers might be accused of billing Medicare for supplies they never provided.
  • Individuals might be accused of making false claims or using someone else's Medicare card to receive treatment or obtain medical supplies.
