Fraud detected in health sector

POSTED: 02/13/13 12:21 PM

WILLEMSTAD, Curacao – The Health Inspection has recently stumbled upon a case where a medical specialist exceeded the limits of his professional domain. In other words, this medical specialist has carried out medical operations on the field of another specialty. In the same case, the patient had to pay in cash for the treatment, while the specialist charged an unexecuted treatment to the insurance company.

Following this discovery, the Health Inspection approached the Association of Medical Specialists Curacao (VMSC) by letter with some probing questions. The Inspection has evidence that this type of action is more widespread in Curacao. The background for the questions to the VMSC is the view of the Inspectorate that this type of act is harmful to the health of Curacao and very damaging to the reputation of the medical specialists on the island.
