Health care fraud is going up every year. Molina and the State of Texas are working together to help prevent waste, abuse and fraud.
These terms mean:
Fraud - Knowingly submitting false claims in order to receive payment.
Abuse - Taking advantage of loopholes in the law to increase payment.
Waste - Making excessive payments due to poor training and education.
