Do you know anyone who had fallen prey to Healthcare fraud?

Healthcare fraud pre-dates COVID-19, however, the global pandemic has highlighted the importance of identifying and reporting healthcare fraud. The life-and-death consequences of healthcare fraud can manifest in a lack of funds to buy respirators, unnecessary medical procedures being performed, or ineffective drugs being prescribed. In this Online CPE Webinar, attendees will understand the latest trends in healthcare fraud that are prevalent and gaining the attention of law enforcement and the Department of Justice.

How does healthcare fraud work?
