Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
The Protective Group, an insurance investigator provider, comments on an article published by the Daily News, which details how a New York doctor is being accused of stealing insurance money from Beth Israel Medical Center.
According to a September 11th article published by the Daily News titled, “New York doctor busted for allegedly stealing $267,000 in insurance money,” Dr. Lawrence Levitan, a doctor at Beth Israel Medical Center, allegedly deposited insurance checks directly into his personal bank account and never gave the hospital its share. The article states, “Instead of letting a contractor for the hospital handle billing as was common practice, Levitan did the work himself.” And by doing so, the article says he was able to keep the money in his own account.
John Monderine, CEO of The Protective Group, a leading security company, says that an insurance investigator can be used in situations such as this one to prevent employee theft and fraud.
“Big businesses and organizations, like hospitals, are often at risk for insurance fraud,” he says. “In order to track down illegal behavior and prevent fraud from happening again, it is extremely important to hire a private insurance investigator. In most cases, there are multiple parties who handle billing and receive insurance checks, so it can be hard for an internal employee to track the money flow. If there had been an insurance investigator present at the hospital, this incident may not have happened."
