VI-SMP Joins Virgin Islands Health Care Fraud Task Force
Federal and local law enforcement and health care officials came together last year to form the Virgin Islands Health Care Fraud Task Force. The task force was formed in order to join forces and strengthen the fight against health care fraud by using a collaborative approach. In a news release issued Monday, Shappert said the first meeting of the Virgin Islands Health Care Fraud Task Force was conducted on a virtual platform, permitting the participants to share information and develop strategies for the territory.
The task force is composed of representatives from the U.S. Attorney’s Office; Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); U.S. Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG); V.I. Justice Department (DOJ); V.I. Medicaid Program (MAP), Senior Medicare Patrol (VI-SMP), Disability Rights Center, (DRCVI), Veterans Affairs Office of Community Care, and the V.I. State Health Insurance Program (VI-SHIP).
