This Healthcare Fraud and Abuse course explores settings in which fraud and abuse might occur. It also reviews which laws, acts, codes, guidelines, and standards hold all healthcare entities accountable. This course is approximately 50 minutes.
The federal and state governments in the U.S. have enacted “fraud and abuse laws” aimed at preventing conduct deemed dishonest, wasteful, and damaging to patients. These laws are often complicated, and the consequences of violating them, including large fines, criminal penalties, and exclusion from the government healthcare system, can be enormous and nearly impossible to overcome.
As you complete this course, you’ll be able to:
– Recognize how fraud and abuse issues may arise
– Identify important laws, acts, codes, guidelines, and standards designed to prevent fraud and abuse
– Recognize the possible penalties that may be imposed for fraud and abuse
