Frankfurt / M. - Between the fourth quarter of 2009 and the third quarter of 2010, the replacement health insurance funds in Hesse pushed through around 1.5 million euros in claims for damages due to incorrect billing. This is reported today by the state representation of the state. “Almost all service providers account for their services correctly. However, we must continue to take tough action against individual 'black sheep' who unjustly enrich themselves at the expense of the contributors ”, said Claudia Ackermann, head of the.
The "Working Group to Combat Misconduct in the Health Care System of the Substitute Health Insurance Funds in Hesse", which deals with the examination of suspicious service providers, primarily presented billing manipulations by nursing services, medical and aids providers, pharmacies, doctors and providers of dialysis services firmly.
"If the suspicion of billing manipulation is confirmed, we will demand financial compensation for the damage that has occurred to the insured community. In addition, report is sent to the responsible public prosecutor, with whom we work closely, ”said Ackermann. But not every suspicion is confirmed and must ultimately lead to criminal complaint.
