Press Release

LexisNexis to Address the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association’s 2012 Annual Training Conference 11/12/2012

With Improper Claims on the Rise, Experts Highlight ‘Big Data’ and Virtual Special Investigation Units to Stop Fraud, Waste and Abuse in Government Health Care Programs

LexisNexis® Risk Solutions today announced its participation in the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association’s (NHCAA) 2012 Annual Training Conference. This year’s conference coincides with International Fraud Awareness Week, a week-long campaign encouraging communities to proactively minimize the impact of fraud by promoting anti-fraud awareness and education.

LexisNexis experts will present during the NHCAA conference’s ‘Anti-Fraud Technology Solutions’ track, offering solutions to address the problem of fraud in government health care programs.

Why: Fraud, waste and abuse are growing problems for government health care programs, which are already grappling with tight budgets. As states begin to implement the Affordable Care Act and decide whether to add potentially millions more Americans to the Medicare rolls, the number of beneficiaries and, therefore the number of potential fraudsters, is likely to increase.
