Help Prevent FRAUD, WASTE AND ABUSE
Itasca Medical Care believes it is the responsibility of everyone to report suspected fraud, waste, or abuse.
What is Fraud, Waste and Abuse?
- Fraud is an act meant to gain something of value.
- Waste is the overuse of services that result in higher costs to the health care program.
- Abuse is the misuse of services.
How to prevent Fraud, Waste and Abuse
Members can help IMCare uncover fraud, waste, and abuse by keeping track of the following things:
- Who provided your health care
- What services you received during the visit and any additional tests or visits the doctor orders
- When you got a health care service
- Where the services took place
- Do not sign blank medical services documents
Call IMCare if you think the provider may have billed wrong or offered service you did not think you needed. Please remember, do not:
- Give your ID card or numbers to anyone other than your doctor, clinic, hospital, or other health care provider
- Ask your doctor or any other health care provider for medical services or supplies that you do not need
- Sign your name to a blank form
- Share your medical records with anyone other than your doctor, clinic, hospital, or other health care professional
