Case studies and Examples

From the Paper:

"Individuals at all levels within the health care and occupational industries--from receptionists to CEOS--are involved in health care fraud. Recent cases report that individuals from all areas within medical and health care organizations take advantage of the private information of their patients and clients in attempts to profit. Such crimes often involve additional offenses, including identity theft, tax evasion, corporate fraud, and other charges. Examples of white-collar crime appear in the media on a regular basis in all areas of the country, both rural and urban."
