health care fraud

How is it that the government and Insurance companies claim to want to drastically reduce health care fraud, yet when fraud is reported to an insurance company they don’t bother to report it to the State Insurance Commissioner as required by Statute, unless the $$$ numbers are media worthy. This in effect condones fraud as a way to make a little extra cash for an individual provider. The chances of getting caught are very low, and if caught, the harshest penalty is that that can no longer participcte as a provider (they’re forced to withdraw their provider agreement) and they have to pay back the money they stole.
