Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

E-Training: Fraud

There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government.

The purpose of this e-training was to eliminate false claims to the government for medicare or Medicaid.  It is really pretty scary, as fraud can happen in any number of ways.  For the most part fraud is deliberately trying to bilk the government of money by, for example billing for a procedure that is not medically necessary, or billing for something twice, or billing for something and not documenting the service or providing the service.  However sometimes fraud can take place if you do something outside the pounds, but should have known the proper way to do things.  This is scarier, and makes it important to know the proper bounds and expectations for when you are billing, such as the requirements for documentation to verify medically necessity is met.
