About the NHCAA Institute
The NHCAA Institute for Health Care Fraud Prevention is a not-for-profit educational foundation (tax exempt under IRS section 501 (c)(3)), established during 2000 to expand the breadth and depth of NHCAA's education and training initiatives. The NHCAA Institute is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors from within the health insurance anti-fraud and law enforcement communities.
The Institute's mission:
The mission of The NHCAA Institute for Health Care Fraud Prevention is to protect the public interest by providing unparalleled professional education and training to private- and public-sector persons responsible for the detection, investigation, prosecution and prevention of health care fraud.
The single-most critical factor in the prevention of health care fraud is ongoing education and training of investigators, both new and experienced-and of non-investigative personnel. In addition to our Annual Training Conference, the NHCAA Institute conducts 16 - 20 specialized training programs throughout the country each year, providing practical training for more than 1,200 private and public-sector anti-fraud professionals.
