Medicare fraud involves collecting funds from Medicare health care reimbursement on illegitimate or fraudulent claims. Medicare fraud includes; billing for services that were unrendered, charging for services or tests that were unnecessary, charging used equipment as new, using a patient’s medicare number in exchange for some type of kickback, or using an inflated billing code that claims the patient needs expensive procedures. The medicare program is based on an honor system that allows it to be targeted for fraud.
