  • Billing for medically unnecessary services or services not performed. Dig Deeper.
  • Falsifying claims or diagnoses.
  • Participating in illegal referrals or kickbacks.
  • Prescribing unnecessary medications to patients.
  • Upcoding for expensive, medically unwarranted services.

Waste: waste can be prevented by preventing overtreatment or low-value care, pricing failure (Rudman et al., 2009)

  • Ensure accuracy when submitting bills or claims for services rendered
  • Submit appropriate Referral and Treatment forms
  • Avoid unnecessary drug prescription or medical treatment

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) identifies requirements related to provider compliance with fraud, waste, and abuse laws that have been enacted to protect consumers. Research three of these requirements and describe the corresponding measures that your health care organization has initiated, or could initiate, to comply with the ACA. Support your analysis with a minimum of two peer-reviewed articles.
