Medicare: Important Steps Have Been Taken, but More Could Be Done to Deter Fraud: Testimony Before the Committee on Finance, U.S. Senate
Kathleen M. King (au)
Statement of Kathleen M. King, Dir., Health Care, GAO. GAO has designated Medicare as a high-risk program, in part because its complexity makes it particularly vulnerable to fraud. Fraud involves an intentional act or representation to deceive with the knowledge that the action or representation could result in gain. The deceptive nature of fraud makes its extent in the Medicare program difficult to measure in a reliable way, but it is clear that fraud contributes to Medicareńˇ╗s fiscal problems. Reducing fraud could help rein in the escalating costs of the program. This statement focuses on the progress made and steps that remain to be taken by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to implement recent legislation and GAOńˇ╗s past recommendations to prevent or reduce fraud in Medicare. This is a print on demand report.
