Huurman talks to Abbad on fraud

HospitalWILLEMSTAD – Health Inspector Jan Huurman will talk to Nena Abbad of the Medical Specialist Association of Curacao on the alleged fraud in health care.

A medical specialist in Curaçao has performed an illegal treatment and then charged that treatment twice. This was reported in January by Huurman.

The medical specialist-still unknown-has carried out medical operations which do not belong to his specialism. The patient then paid this treatment in cash, while the specialist also declared this treatment to the insurer. The Health Care Inspectorate has sent a letter to the Medical Specialists Association of Curaçao with questions about the situation. The Inspectorate has circumstantial evidence that this type of action is more common in Curaçao.

Abbad said that there is an internal investigation going on, as long as this investigation is not completed, no announcements about it can be made.
