Insurance fraud can take many forms, including workers' compensation claims. Physicians want to provide quality care for their patients. These health care providers may bill insurers for treatments not covered in a patient's insurance policy. Billing is done for a different service. In turn, patients want maximum value for medical services and not be responsible for large medical bills.
Insurance fraud for the purposes of financial gain can be alleged following an investigation. "Upcoding" involves billing for treatments more expensive than what was provided. "Phantom billing" occurs for services not performed. "Ganging" involves billing family members or people accompanying patients who did not receive the service or prescription.
