Moch Discusses Bribes for Unnecessary Durable Medical Equipment Prescriptions
In his recent “Law Update” column, Eric Moch discusses how the emerging popularity of telehealth has also given rise to new opportunities for fraud and abuse. Moch cites the cases of two nurse practitioners who bilked insurance companies out of multi-millions of dollars by fraudulently prescribing nondurable medical equipment. He also examines some of the methods perpetrators use and offers strategies special investigation units can use to undercover fraudulent activity. The full article, which was published in SIU Today (the quarterly publication of International Association of Special Investigation Units) is available here.
Moch, a partner in the firm’s Chicago office, focuses his practice on organized insurance fraud, as well as first- and third-party coverage and bad faith defense. He has been named to the lists of Illinois Super Lawyers and Illinois Leading Lawyers, is a former member of the Board of Directors of the National Society of Professional Insurance Investigators, and is a Past President of the Society’s Illinois chapter.
