The annual cost of health care for the United States is over $2,500,000,000,000.00 (2.5 Trillion Dollars) and rising.  Health care costs are over $8,000 per person and about 18% of the GDP.  It is estimated about 10% of these costs are the result of health care fraud.  The "for profit" medical system has created economic incentives for large drug companies, hospitals, health systems, hospice providers, pharmacies, medical device providers, and other health care providers to commit health care fraud to expand their profits at the expense of the medical system and taxpayers.  Locating these fraudulent health care providers and blowing the whistle on health care fraud is needed now more than ever as Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, the VA, Tricare, and other government health benefit programs are being stretched more than ever.

It is vitally important that health care professions with specialized knowledge of Medicaid Fraud, CHIP Fraud, Medicare Fraud, and other health care fraud continue to file Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Lawsuits, Medicare Fraud Upcoding Fraud Whistleblower Lawsuits, Medicare Medicaid Fraud Hospital Whistleblower Lawsuits, Hospice Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Lawsuits, and Medicare Medicaid Fraud Nursing Home Whistleblower Lawsuits .

Medicaid is a public health care problem in the United States that provides health care, dental care, and orthodontic care for eligible individuals and families with low incomes and resources. Medicaid is the largest source of funding for medical and health-related services for people with limited income in the United States. The cost of the Medicaid program has been increasing and is expected to continue to increase because the fastest growing aspect of Medicaid is nursing home coverage.  As such, with this increase in Medicaid spending on nursing home care, hospice, and home health care, there will be a large increase in for profit nursing homes, hospice services, senior services, and elder care services that prey on the elderly and commit Medicaid and Medicare fraud.  For more information on Medicare Nursing Home Fraud, Medicaid Nursing Home Fraud, and Hospice Fraud, please go to the following web pages,  Nursing Home, Elder Care, & Skilled Nursing Facilities Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Lawsuits and  Hospital Medicare Fraud Whistleblower Lawsuits.
