Our Awards Program

NHCAA offers four distinguished awards that honor the very essence of effective health care fraud investigation and its impact on fraud deterrence and prevention. Award winners are honored each year at a special luncheon and awards ceremony during the NHCAA Institute for Health Care Fraud Prevention's Annual Training Conference (ATC).

NHCAA is now accepting 2015 nominations for the Investigation of the Year Award and the new SIRIS Investigation of the Year Award. Click the links below to review the nomination process, requirements, and form. The deadline for submission is Friday, August 14, 2015. For more information, please send an email to awards@nhcaa.org.

Investigation of the Year Award

The Investigation of the Year Award honors an outstanding and effective health care fraud investigation and its impact on fraud deterrence and prevention. Due to the complexity of health care fraud investigations, a multi-organization investigative effort normally is required for a successful resolution and, therefore, it is more appropriate to recognize this approach.

NEW: The SIRIS Investigation of the Year Award recognizes a successful health care fraud case that was created or significantly enhanced as a result of using SIRIS -- NHCAA's online Special Investigation Resource and Intelligence System. 

Excellence in Public Awareness Award

Each year NHCAA bestows an Excellence in Public Awareness Award to an individual or an organization who has, through their work, contributed towards the public awareness of health care fraud. Award winners, selected by NHCAA, help bring to light the importance of combating health care fraud and its destructive impact on our nation's health care system and citizens.
