Get Your Money Back From Medicare Fraud Without a Lawyer

Medicare billing fraud costs US taxpayers around $130 billion every year. Sometimes, Medicare fraud occurs when someone else gets their hand on your Medicare beneficiary number and uses your identity to get the healthcare they need. That's tragic and unfortunate, but it's also hard to blame someone who's just trying to get the healthcare they may need to survive.

The more frustrating side of Medicare fraud occurs when physicians and hospitals bill Medicare for services they didn't provide or for more expensive drugs or procedures than the patient received.

If you're a victim of identity theft or provider fraud, you don't need an expensive Medicare fraud lawyer. You can use DoNotPay. The app is fast, simple, and reliable. Today, we'll explore how Medicare fraud happens and how you can report it with the world's first robot lawyer.

How Medicare Fraud Happens

Providers take advantage of Medicare by billing for services they didn't provide or by fluffing up the invoice with more expensive services. This is called upcoding. It happens every day in the US, and the taxpayers end up paying the bill.

Preventing Medicare Fraud

To prevent upcoding, patients should:

  1. Pay attention to the services you receive, and ask questions about them.
  2. Ask a family member or health care proxy to help if you cannot do so.
  3. Compare those services to the medical bills and benefits statements you get in the mail from Medicare.
  4. Notify both the provider and Medicare right away when you see a discrepancy.
  5. Don't give up if a hospital gives you the runaround about your bill.

But you don't need to hire a costly Medicare fraud attorneyDoNotPay makes it super easy for patients to get their medical bills corrected.

What to Do if the Hospital is Giving You a Hard Time About Your Incorrect Bill

Medical bill problems cause huge hassles for patients. Mistakes can happen, and a genuine error can occur when the medical billing specialist types in the wrong CPT code while processing your invoice.

Start by:

  • Going over your bills and benefits statements carefully.
  • Contacting the provider about their mistake.
  • Contacting Medicare about the mistake.
  • Keeping good records of your conversations, note the time and date, and the name of the hospital staff you deal with.

You can file a report on your own. If you suspect healthcare billing fraud, you can contact the following:
