An estimated 60% of healthcare organizations have faced at least one CMS payer audit, per a recent study.  In 2021, alone, 336 individuals were convicted for health care fraud.  Of those fraud cases, the average “loss” reported was estimated to be in excess of $1M.  73.5% of individuals convicted of fraud were sentenced to prison, with an average “guideline term” of 52 months.  This is alarming in the healthcare industry as more businesses are being audited at a higher rate as an ongoing trend.
