Feds announce new anti-fraud initiative
Modern Healthcare

HHS and the U.S. Justice Department have partnered with about a half-dozen health insurers to help prevent fraud and abuse in healthcare billing. The initiative is designed to share information on specific schemes, billing codes and even geographical hotspots that have been used in fraudulent activity. The government hopes, for example, to be able to immediately detect when payments are billed for the same patient in two different cities on the same day.
