About the AHFI Program

Established in 2002, "Accredited Health Care Fraud Investigator" is a unique professional designation granted by the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association to individuals who meet certain qualifications related to professional experience, specialized training, formal education and demonstrated knowledge in the detection, investigation and/or prosecution of health care fraud.

The AHFI® designation is available to qualified individuals who are NHCAA Individual Members or employees of NHCAA Member Organization, Affiliate Member, or Premier and Supporting Member or employees of an NHCAA Law Enforcement Liaison, or other federal, state or local law enforcement agency.

When hiring an Investigator or Fraud/Data Analyst I look for the AHFI designation. If the applicant has the designation, I know they've received superior training and know all the key points of investigating health care fraud. The AHFI provides the applicant a competitive advantage.
