National Report Medicare Fraud day is Sept. 12

#NationalReportMedicareFraudDay is Sept. 12. It’s something you don’t think about until you realize the money stolen by those who cheat Medicare comes out of your pocket, to the tune of $65 billion a year. It’s everyone’s responsibility to report fraud, but if you’re an insurance agent, it’s your duty.

Most people in the #insurance industry know to report #Medicare fraud to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which oversees the Medicare and Medicaid programs. This is a simple and easy way to report fraud and it can be done anonymously.

Another way to report Medicare fraud is under the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) whistleblower reward program, which can pay significant rewards.

There is an official national website that provides you with the tools to report #Medicare fraud to the DOJ for a reward or directly to CMS. Go to for more information.
