What is Benefits Fraud?

Benefits fraud occurs in many ways and the schemes are constantly evolving. While the vast majority of plan members and health care providers are honest and ethical, it is important to understand the main perpetrators of fraudulent activity. Benefits fraud is generally committed by plan members, health care practitioners and suppliers, or a combination working together in collusion to defraud benefit plans.
