View Agenda

Participants who attend this program will return to their team with a thorough understanding of fraud in the health care system and the applicable laws for investigations. Participants will be able to explain common health care fraud schemes, implement basic investigative strategies to enhance fraud detection and investigation, evaluate cases for merit, detect potential red flags in medical and billing records, and identify appropriate resources to assist in fraud detection and investigation.  

Expert Faculty


Sessions are led by health insurance investigators, analysts, SIU Directors, and law enforcement investigators actively working cases in the health care field.

Hands on Interactive Learning


Begin by defining the scope of the health care fraud challenge and examining each step of the investigative process from detection and choosing an investigative strategy, to effective report writing and presenting your case to other internal and external stakeholders. Participants, working in groups, will synthesize concepts by taking part in exercises woven throughout the program and an extensive hands-on case study.

Case Discussion Roundtable Meetings

Unique to NHCAA educational programs, eligible attendees can participate in Case Discussion Roundtable Meetings. Designed as small group discussions, private insurer members come together with our public and law enforcement partners to share case information and discuss schemes, trends, and fraud patterns. Attendees must be an employee of a NHCAA Member Organization, Law Enforcement Liaison or Affiliate Member to attend.
