Fraudulent billing is one of the many ways companies cheat the government. It occurs in a wide range of industries, from disaster relief work to medical services.
- A defense contractor may bill the government for the services of an engineer, when in fact work was performed by an administrative assistant.
- A hospital may commit medical billing fraud by charging Medicare or Medicaid for name-brand drugs, while instead providing generic medications.
- A medical provider may run an insurance claim scam, double billing Medicare and a private insurance company for services.
- A hazardous waste company may contract to dispose of waste safely and in accordance with federal laws, and instead simply dump the waste in a hidden location.
Ultimately, these fraudulent billing actions mean that private companies are benefiting from public funds, without providing full and fair services the public is entitled to receive. The companies are committing fraud against the government – and can be held accountable for these acts.
