A Way to Attack Healthcare Fraud

 Insurance Thought Leadership

If insurers want to mitigate risk, rather than risk their time and money with litigation, if they want to guard against fraudulent claims, if they want to protect good doctors against wrongful claims, then they should invest in sound legal counsel.

Insurers should highlight the value of retaining healthcare lawyers with the intelligence to know—and the strength to do—what is necessary to defeat false allegations of fraud or abuse. A doctor’s career can hang in the balance when defending against a professional liability claim.

Without sound counsel, our best doctors may not be able to practice medicine. Unless we work to stop fraudulent claims, or make it more difficult for fraudsters to enlist the government to pursue these claims, our healthcare system will continue to suffer.
