A Las Vegas podiatrist allegedly seeking reimbursements for ingrown toenails that were never clipped is one of the growing number of cases across the nation involving health care fraud, authorities noted at a national conference Tuesday.
Dave Hennings, chairman of the association, estimates that at least $48 billion is lost each year through various health fraud schemes in the United States.
Among the schemes commonly used are doctors charging insurers for procedures that were never conducted or conducting unnecessary procedures on a patient in order to file a claim.
