In addition, CCH Health Care Fraud and Abuse Guide is a one-stop resource for full-text source material and expert commentary.

The need for a wide-ranging guide is also spurred by the increasing complexity and rapid evolution of health-care delivery systems, creating an environment where numerous billing abuse issues can arise. …
