According to the Dictionary of Health Economics and Finance, healthcare abuse is the activity where someone overuses or misuses services. And; the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services [CMS] states that: “although some of the practices may be initially considered to be abusive, rather than fraudulent activities, they may evolve into fraud.”

In the case of healthcare abuse, this may occur when a physician sees the patient for treatment more times than deemed medically appropriate. If there are reported issues or actions from other sources, such as the National Practitioner Data Bank [NPDB] or a medical board, a health insurance program can take that opportunity to review healthcare providers’ activities.

ASSESSMENT: Most insurance or managed care participation agreements allow for this type of scrutiny.

QUERY: But, what if the patient, or care-giver, is the culprit?
