NICB Report On Durable Medical Equipment Fraud
Date:1/30/2013

of us ultimately pay for through higher premiums and taxes.

The fraud occurring in the nation's health care system is widespread and timeless.  It is the reason that since 2010, NICB has been working with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the Attorney General and others in Washington to establish an information and data sharing effort aimed at detecting and preventing insurance fraud at the public and private sector levels.  It is also the reason that in July 2012, NICB was named to the Executive Board of the Health Care Fraud Prevention Partnership.

"We said at the time that there is a significant amount of crossover by those committing fraud against Medicare and Medicaid, and also taking advantage of the property and casualty insurance industry," said NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle .  "This report confirms that and helps us focus our investigative efforts on the areas where this is a growing problem.  And at the same time, it is our goal to share information and work with the public and private sectors to identify these schemes and stop them."

Insurance fraud is not a victimless crime; we all pay for this greed through higher insurance premiums.  If you suspect someone is committing insurance fraud, report it.

Anyone with information concerning insurance fraud can report it anonymously by calling toll-free 1-800-TEL-NICB (1-800-835-6422), texting keyword "fraud" to TIP411 (847411) or by visiting our website at www.nicb.org.  Or, iPhone or iPad users can download the NICB Fraud Tips app to make it easy to quickly send a tip and get a response.
