In this column from FierceHealthPayer: Antifraud, Jane Antonio interviews Wisconsin SMP Project Director Kevin Brown. She also explains that “It can be difficult enlisting public support to fight healthcare fraud. Surveys have consistently shown that customers dislike insurance companies and don't want to engage with them, as FierceHealthPayer reported. Some people have no qualms about stealing from insurers or the government since they don't consider them sympathetic fraud victims. And some customers don't see how healthcare fraud takes money from their wallets.” In her opinion, SMP is an exception in its ability to engage the public about the problem of health care fraud.
