Abuse

This is my first post and I am going to describe shortly about abuse here in according to  health sector. Abuse describes practices that, either directly or indirectly, result in unnecessary costs to the Medicare Program. Abuse includes any practice not consistent with providing patients with services that are medically necessary, meet professionally
recognized standards, and are priced fairly.
Examples of Medicare abuse include:
• Billing for unnecessary medical services
• Charging excessively for services or supplies
• Misusing codes on a claim, such as upcoding or unbundling codes
