Health Insurance Counter Fraud Group UK

The Health Insurance Counter Fraud Group UK is an industry initiative to prevent and detect fraud within health care and the insurance industry.

HICF Group, About

The Health Insurance Counter Fraud Group was commenced in July 2001 by a number of large insurers. There was little awareness of health care fraud in the UK until about 2000.

In 2000, the National Health Service (NHS) Counter Fraud and Security Management Services began highlighting cases of fraud and obtaining prosecutions. The goal back then remains the same today – to prevent and detect fraud within health care.
