The Medicare and Medicaid systems are notoriously complex, and many patients and healthcare practitioners make honest and unintentional mistakes in the course of filing a claim or billing. However, because of significant financial losses to the federal government resulting from Medicare fraud, the government has started to aggressively investigate any potential abuses or instances of fraud, even those that are true mistakes.
