False Claims Act

Watch a brief video on the False Claims Act to help you understand and comply with this law. False claims are not claims with innocent billing mistakes. Providers know these claims are false, and they include services that are:

  • Not rendered
  • Upcoded
  • Not supported by the patient’s medical record
  • Part of a previously submitted claim

This video is part of the Office of Inspector General (OIG) Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) Provider Compliance Training initiative to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse. The video originally aired in 2011, but the information is still current.
