Upcoding Durable Medical Equipment Fraud

Durable Medical Equipment Fraud, also known as DME Fraud, takes advantage of a healthcare system working to provide products to those in need. As much of the population ages, violations related to DME have continued to rise. Durable Medical Equipment includes wheelchairs, oxygen tanks, hospital beds and much more. Fighting fraud, waste and abuse of the healthcare industry is one of the best ways to end this pervasive and damaging practice.

Examples of DME Fraud

  • Shipping equipment to patients before receiving physician approval
  • Double billing for DME supplies
  • Upcoding equipment
  • Failing to credit Medicare or Medicaid for equipment returned by the patient.
