Boot Camp for Health Care Fraud Investigators

NHCAA’s Boot Camp program anchors the path to becoming an AHFI® and shows participants the skills necessary to become a leader within any health care anti-fraud organization. This year the virtual program will be held over seven business days with both on-demand and live sessions as well as collaborative discussions and a case study to cap the program.

Designed for career switchers, inter-departmental transfers, or new college graduates with less than three years of experience in health care fraud, this program will help your newest team members acquire an understanding of the core competencies necessary to combat health care fraud. Expert faculty lays the foundation for investigative strategy, recognizing fraud schemes, and deploying investigative skills.

The program begins 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.

Participants will return to their teams with new knowledge and be able to:

  • Explain common health care fraud schemes.
  • Implement basic investigative strategies to enhance fraud detection and investigation.
  • Identify the steps in an investigative plan.
  • Identify common data analytic strategies to investigate a case.
  • Evaluate cases for merit.
  • Detect potential red flags in medical and billing records.
  • Identify appropriate resources to assist in fraud detection and investigation.

The pre-recorded sessions will be available on demand between May 11 – 19 to registered attendees. Participants will follow an agenda with some days being dedicated to the on-demand sessions and others to live discussion and reinforcement of concepts. The case study will be held live on the last day of the program. To earn credit for attending, every required session must be watched and each session quiz, which ensures content mastery, must be completed. These sessions were not designed to be shared or streamed with others. Each participant should be registered to attend.
