What are Fraud, Waste, and Abuse?

FRAUD is any intentional deception or misrepresentation made by a person with the knowledge that the deception could result in some unauthorized benefit to him/her or some other person. It includes any act that constitutes fraud under applicable Federal or State law.

WASTE is unintentional misuse of Medicare funds through inadvertent error, most frequently incorrect coding and billing.

ABUSE (of member) means provider practices that are inconsistent with sound fiscal, business, or medical practices, and result in an unnecessary cost to the health plan, or in reimbursement for services that are not medically necessary or that fail to meet professionally recognized standards for healthcare. It also includes recipient practices that result in unnecessary cost to the health plan.

For potential Fraud-Waste-Abuse complaints, you may call our Hotline

Examples of fraud, waste, and abuse include letting someone use your ID card to get medical care; a provider who bills for services that you did not receive; getting a prescription that was not prescribed by a licensed and appropriate medical provider; and/or a medical provider physically abusing a Health Choice Generations Utah member.

All organizations that provide Medicare Advantage Plans, like Health Choice Generations Utah, must obey federal laws against retaliation. If you report a fraud, waste, and abuse to Health Choice Generations Utah, it will not affect the medical care you receive.

If you witness any misuse of any ID card, or any other instances of Medicare fraud, waste or abuse, please contact Health Choice Generations Utah FWA Alertline, toll-free at 1-877-898-6080 or TTY 711. You can call this number any time and leave a confidential message.

Authorization for Use or Disclosure of PHI form
Authorization for Use or Disclosure of PHI form (Spanish)

As an adult, you can express your wishes about the type of medical treatment you would like to have through a document known as an Advance Medical Directive for Healthcare.

Simply stated, it provides directions in the event of an accident or illness which results in your inability to communicate your wishes yourself. An Advance Directive can also allow you to designate a person (a proxy) who will make healthcare decisions for you.

An advance directive may be used to accept or refuse any procedure or treatment, including life-sustaining treatment. You should discuss your options with your physicians, loved ones, clergy and/or close friends.

There are different types of advanced directives and different names for them. Documents called “Living Will” and “Power of Attorney for Healthcare” are two examples.

If you decide that you want to have an Advance Directive, there are several ways to get this type of form; from your lawyer, a social worker or from some office supply stores. To make it easier for our members, Health Choice Generations Utah Utah has posted the Living Will and Power of Attorney for Healthcare forms along with instructions on how to fill out the form.

If you should have any questions, please call Health Choice Generations Utah Customer Service at 844-457-8943 (TTY, 711), 8 a.m. – 8 p.m., 7 days a week.
