NU Online News Service, Jan. 3, 12:15 p.m. – The Mississippi House of Representatives is considering a bill that would set penalties for knowingly filing false claims with health care insurance carriers.

The Mississippi Health Care False Claims Act, H.R. 44, would allow health care carriers to file civil actions for false claims and would impose fines on violators ranging from $5,000 to $10,000, plus three times the amount of damages that an insurer sustains because of a fraudulent claim.

The bill, which would take effect July 1 if passed, was introduced by Rep. Robert W. Moak, D-Bogue Chitto.
