Fraud — Health Care
Fraud means to get coverage or payments you know you should not get. It also means to help someone else get coverage or payments you know that person should not get. Anyone who commits fraud can be prosecuted. If a court decides that someone got health care benefits by committing fraud, the court will require you to pay back the state for those services in addition to other penalties.
You may be fined up to $10,000 and jailed for up to one year in a county jail, if you:
Intentionally give false or incomplete information on your application for health care.
Do not report a change that causes you to get more benefits than you should.
Use another person’s card to get services for yourself.
Let someone else use your ForwardHealth card to get health care services or prescription drugs.
