Health Care Fraud Schemes Related to COVID-19
April 16

In these unprecedented times, NHCAA is committed to providing the health insurance industry with the most up-to-date information on health care fraud schemes evolving from COVID-19. Federal and state legislative bodies and agencies are responding to this emergency with extraordinary speed and in turn, insurers are making necessary adjustments to coverage and payment policies. Thus far, these efforts have focused largely on waiving cost-sharing for telehealth and reducing administrative burdens on providers. Unfortunately, there are bad actors who are exploiting this crisis and preying on people’s fears with fraudulent schemes.

On April 16, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Service, Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG) will detail their efforts to curb fraud and offer insight on the preliminary schemes from online phishing scams, door-to-door COVID-19 testing offers to a variety of tele-marketing schemes.

Data Analytics Techniques & Strategies
May 21

This presentation will focus on the spike report, a staple of fraud analytics, which identifies large increases in activity. When working well, spike reports can provide valuable leads on emerging schemes, as well as intelligence on overall trends in medical expenses. However, cultivating an effective spike report means getting the details right. This presentation will discuss how to choose metrics and time periods, but also use the spike report as a jumping off point for a broader look at the uses and misuses of data analytics in fraud detection.
