By its very nature, Medicare is a sitting duck for fraudulent activity. Why? Because the government pays on an honor system, requiring only electronic submission to claim for services or goods provided by a health care provider.

However, it wasnít long before criminal minds discovered the bonanza this lack of oversight afforded them. No built-in checks and balances or due diligence exists to protect the Medicare giant from the onslaught of devious and criminal elements ever seeking new ways to rob from the Medicare giantís piggybank. It is only when the fraud is large or blatant enough that the government and Medicare will try to recover their funds. Visit the Medicare Fraud Reporting Center for more information.

Congress has passed three major acts dealing with competition, pricing and monopolies, and has regularly added amendments to strengthen the provisions and reflect the changing times. Enforcement of these laws protects the public from overspending, encourages choice within the market and protects businesses from competitors who seek to gain an unfair advantage.
