How Initiatives to Reduce Fraud in Federal Health Care Programs Affect the Budget
Lara Robillard (au)
Observers often cite fraud as an important contributor to high health care spending, particularly in federal programs. This report describes how the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates the budgetary effects of legislative proposals to reduce fraud in Medicare, Medicaid, and the Childrenäó»s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and how those estimates are used in the Congressional budget process. Here, fraud is considered to be any deliberate attempt to use deception to receive a service or payment from these services when the individual or entity in question has no right to that service or payment under the programäó»s statutes and rules. In general, CBO estimates that federal spending for the programäó»s benefits would be reduced by legislation that would provide either additional funding or new authority to reduce fraud. Tables.
