Billing For Medical Services Not Performed a Serious Form of Billing Fraud
Houston, TX law firm familiar with cases involving billing for medical services not performed
Medicaid fraud often involves billing this government program for medical services that are not performed, according to attorneys at Brewer & Pritchard. For example, they might submit a bill for a blood test or an X-ray or some other procedure that the patient never received. Doctors and health care providers who commit these crimes often think they can get away with them because of the sheer size of the Medicaid system. Millions of people rely on this federal program created in 1965 and supervised on a state-by-state basis.

You shouldn't have to pay for medical services you didn't receive
Billing for services not performed might sound impossible. But that doesn't stop some medical professionals from trying to get away with such crimes. Sometimes, they bill the Medicaid system for doctor's visits that never took place. Other times, medical professionals will attempt to add a few line items to a long medical bill, hoping that the patient or the Medicaid system will not notice such small changes. They might even submit bills for deceased patients or patients who have transferred to other medical providers.
