Our Awards Program

NHCAA offers four distinguished awards that honor the very essence of effective health care fraud investigation and its impact on fraud deterrence and prevention. Award winners are honored each year at a special luncheon and awards ceremony during the NHCAA Annual Training Conference (ATC).

Congratulations to all the 2018 award winners.

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 John Morris Volunteer Service Award recognizes an individual who has made an outstanding contribution in support of the mission of NHCAA. John George Morris, Jr. was a founding member of NHCAA and served for many years on the NHCAA Board of Directors, including service as the Chair of the Board in 2003. After leaving the Board of Directors, John continued to actively participate in NHCAA committees and activities and to volunteer his time unselfishly to assist on key NHCAA projects. John was a pioneer in creating the concept of a private-public partnership against health care fraud and in establishing NHCAA’s 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 and abuse.
