False work stoppages, health centers that charge several times for the same treatment, fictitious ambulance trips… Health Insurance fraud has never been so high, amounting to 466 million euros in 2023, a record revealed Thursday March 28. The damage has doubled in eight years. Hearing aids are the target of new scams. Now fully reimbursed, they have allowed more patients to have access to them. But the crooks smelled the seam: in just three months, 21.3 million euros in fraud were detected.
