Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT)

In a continuing effort to fight Medicare fraud, the Health Care Fraud Prevention and Enforcement Action Team (HEAT) was formed last year. The team costs of U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) officials. By leveraging advanced data analysis technology, HEAT has been identifying and prosecuting many types of Medicare fraud cases. I'm glad to see that the government is working hard to

The mission of TEAM is:
  • To marshal significant resources across government to prevent waste, fraud and abuse in the Medicare and Medicaid programs and crack down on the fraud perpetrators who are abusing the system and costing us all billions of dollars.
  • To reduce skyrocketing health care costs and improve the quality of care by ridding the system of perpetrators who are preying on Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries.
  • To highlight best practices by providers and public sector employees who are dedicated to ending waste, fraud and abuse in Medicare.
  • To build upon existing partnerships that already exist between the Department of Justice and the Department of Health and Human Services like our Medicare Fraud Strike Forces to reduce fraud and recover taxpayer dollars.
