Four members of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) will serve as panelists during a national dialogue on health care fraud in Washington, D.C. The National Summit on Health Care Fraud is being sponsored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Justice.

“Insurance regulators are on the lookout for fraud every day,” said Jane Cline, NAIC president and West Virginia insurance commissioner. “There is a growing trend with fraud in Medicare, Medicaid and private health insurance markets. We look forward to working with the Administration to help provide input into possible policy reforms.”

Participating NAIC members and scheduled panels include:

• Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, Role of States in Preventing Health Care Fraud

• Illinois Director of Insurance Michael McRaith, Development of Effective Prevention Policies and Methods for Insurers, Providers and Beneficiaries

• Ohio Director of Insurance Mary Jo Hudson, Effective Law Enforcement Strategies

• New Hampshire Insurance Commissioner Roger Sevigny, Measuring Health Care Fraud, Assessing Recoveries and Determining Resource Needs

Featured speakers at the Summit include Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, a former NAIC President and Kansas Insurance Commissioner, and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Other participants in the Summit include prosecutors, investigators and insurance company executives.

The Summit will be held at the Natcher Conference Center at the National Institutes of Health from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, January 28.
