Estimates suggest that 10 to 40 percent of the healthcare budget may be lost to fraudulent activities each year. In dollar terms, this means that billions are lost annually to criminal actions by fraudulent providers. It is important to note that a distinction exists between Medicaid/Medicare fraud and Medicaid/Medicare abuse. Fraud generally refers to instances where a provider intentionally steals from the healthcare system, while abuse refers to instances where the providers accidentally or unintentionally misuse the insurance systems. These distinctions are recognized in various state laws.
