National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association
The United States spends more than $2 trillon on health care every year. Of that amount, NHCAA estimates conservatively that at least 3%–or more than $60 billion each year–is lost to fraud.
This loss directly impacts patients, taxpayers and government through higher heatlh care costs, insurance premiums and taxes. Additionally, health care fraud often hurts patients who may be subjected to unnecesary or unsafe procedures or who may be the victims of identity theft.
See tips from the NHCAA on how to spot fraud, how to stop it from taking place and how to report it here.

Report such fraudulent American Doctors and the chances of you receiving a financial reward from the Federal Government is very high.
