Health care costs are a top concern for both businesses and individuals, and for good reason: By the year 2019, total national health care spending is expected to exceed $4.57 trillion, representing 19.6 percent of the U.S. Gross Domestic Product. Health care companies and providers today face unique industry regulations, procedures and considerations, as well as a heightened potential for fraudulent activity. Consequently, fraud fighters need an in-depth understanding of the industry environment and the types of health care fraud that can occur, including how to prevent, detect and investigate them.
This two-day, instructor-led course is designed for anti-fraud and audit professionals who work in the payer, provider, vendor and employer benefit areas or advise clients who operate within the health care continuum. Get the targeted training you need to keep up with the latest fraud schemes and related laws affecting this highly complex profession.
