Awards Program

NHCAA’s long-standing Annual Awards Program is an opportunity to recognize remarkable investigative work from across the health care anti-fraud industry. Each year, NHCAA acknowledges superlative efforts in addressing health care fraud, whether it be an important message to the public, generous service to the Association, or superior investigative skill. One commonality that many NHCAA Awardees possess—particularly in the investigative award categories—is a demonstrated commitment to collaboration. Given NHCAA’s history as a private-public partnership, collaboration is an attribute that NHCAA is always pleased to honor.

NHCAA congratulates the
2023 awardees.

The awards nomination process begins each year in June. The nomination process is posted online and communicated to eligible NHCAA members. Consider nominating your team or organization! Award winners are announced and recognized in conjunction with the Annual Training Conference, typically held in November.

INVESTIGATION OF THE YEAR AWARD

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.

SIRIS INVESTIGATION OF THE YEAR AWARD

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.

EXCELLENCE IN PUBLIC AWARENESS AWARD

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.
