Hospitals present a variety of opportunities for the unscrupulous to prey upon the ill and the elderly in order to capture government healthcare dollars.
The professional services provided, including anesthesia, rehab and therapy services, and outpatient surgery, mean that every type of healthcare fraud may be present, including upcoding and billing for services not rendered.
Fraud may also occur around the medications, especially those with in-house or captive pharmacies. The environment can be a breeding ground for illegal kickback arrangements, including with organizations providing unnecessary hospice care.
