I would like to reply to the comment: How often does fraud happen now that everything is computerized? To some extent computerization assists in the amount of "creative billing". Electronic health records have canned language, allowing, if a provider is less than honest, an opportunity to enhance the level of service and upcode the visit. As a prior auditor there were things reviewed to try and ascertain if this was a concern, but it did happen.

How often does fraud happen now that just about everything is computerized? I would think it would happen less, but then what could someone easily overlook that could be portrayed as being fraudulent?
