Our Awards Program

Submit your nomination(s) for Investigation of the Year Award, SIRIS Investigation of the Year Award, Medical Director Award, or Excellence in Public Awareness Award by Wednesday, July 18.

Deadline for submission: Wednesday, July 18, 2018.
The Investigation of the Year Award honors an outstanding and effective health care fraud investigation and its impact on fraud deterrence and prevention. Due to the complexity of health care fraud investigations, a multi-organization investigative effort normally is required for a successful resolution and, therefore, it is more appropriate to recognize this approach.
The SIRIS Investigation of the Year Award recognizes a successful health care fraud case that was created or significantly enhanced as a result of using SIRIS -- NHCAA's online Special Investigation Resource and Intelligence System.
The NHCAA Medical Director Award seeks to recognize a Medical Director who has demonstrated a passionate commitment to combating health care fraud, which in turn supports the NHCAA Mission to protect and serve the public interest by increasing awareness and improving the detection, investigation, civil and criminal prosecution and prevention of health care fraud.
Each year NHCAA bestows an Excellence in Public Awareness Award to an individual or an organization who has, through their work, contributed towards the public awareness of health care fraud. Award winners, selected by NHCAA, help bring to light the importance of combating health care fraud and its destructive impact on our nation's health care system and citizens.
