HHS Releases Guide to Help Med Students Learn About Medicare Fraud

The Department of Health & Human Service's Office of Inspector General has released a new tool geared toward educating medical school students on Medicare and Medicaid fraud and abuse laws, according to a news report by The Hill.

The tool is a booklet, titled "Roadmap for New Physicians: Avoiding Medicare and Medicaid Fraud Abuse," that will be delivered to medical schools across the country. The booklet covers education on specific fraud and abuse laws and physician relationships with payors, other providers and vendors.

The booklet's release follows an OIG report that suggested medical school students aren't adequately trained on healthcare fraud law.
