Bending the curve: Tackling fraud, waste and abuse

Billions of dollars in health care spending are lost each year to fraud, waste and abuse (FWA).

FWA affects everyone. Global medical inflation rates in 2017 were nearly three times general inflation rates, and FWA is a cause of premium hikes and reduced benefits.

Aetna International is working to build a culture of health and well-being within our communities to transform the member experience and address many of the acute challenges facing health care today. Our zero-tolerance approach to FWA underpins this mission.

Learn more about the FWA factors that contribute to global medical inflation; read about the organisation’s International Special Investigations Unit in action; and find out what we advocate to help protect our clients and customers from the fall out of FWA.
