Major types of health care fraud generally fall into the following categories:

Healthcare fraud committed by some of the U.S.’s biggest companies is staggering, with recoveries against healthcare companies made under the False Claims Act already exceeding $15 billion, and expected to grow dramatically over time.
Whistleblower rewards from health care fraud have exceeded $2 billion, and are expected to rise with the recovery of additional billions in pending cases.
Healthcare fraud can cause severe damage to patients, including death and permanent disability. It often takes advantage of some of our most vulnerable citizens — our elderly, our disabled and our children. Many cases have highlighted dramatic breaches of the sanctity of the physician-patient relationship, fraudulently enabling a healthcare company and a physician to financially enrich themselves, at the expense of patients.
