The Medicare and Medicaid billing systems are incredibly complex and it is easy for health care professionals to make honest mistakes. If those mistakes are significant enough, however, those professionals can find themselves charged with Medicare or Medicaid fraud. In fact, even patients can be charged with Medicare or Medicaid fraud as well.
