Fraud, Waste and Abuse
As part of the Colorado Choice compliance program, we have an obligation to report known or suspected fraud, waste and abuse. We use the terms “fraud”, “waste” and “abuse” defined below as applied to our business.
Fraud – An intentional deception or misrepresentation made by a person with the knowledge that the deception could result in some unauthorized benefit to him/herself or some other person. It includes any act that constitutes fraud under applicable Federal or State law.
Waste – Overutilization of services, or other practices that result in unnecessary costs. Generally not considered caused by criminally negligent actions but rather misuse of resources.
Abuse – An individual’s activities that are inconsistent with sound fiscal, business or medical practices that result in an unnecessary cost, reimbursement for services that are not medical necessary or fail to meet professionally recognized standards for health care.
