Social Security fraud has reached a record amount

Never has such a high amount been reached. For the year 2023, 6.5 million euros in fraud were detected or stopped by the Loire-Atlantique Primary Health Insurance Fund (CPAM), reports the organization.

The fault lies with certain unscrupulous policyholders, employers, or health professionals, but above all with ever stricter controls in the department. More than 700 cases of fraud were in fact brought to light by the 17 agents responsible for uncovering false work stoppages, falsification of identity or drug trafficking… Nearly 200 gave rise to litigation, a record again .

A pharmacy embezzles a million euros

Among the most notable cases, the “irresponsible behavior” of a Nantes pharmacy which managed to embezzle the sum of one million euros. Invoicing for masks never distributed, tracing contracts never carried out, the pharmacy also employed unqualified staff to carry out the antigen tests… A financial penalty of 598,000 euros was requested against the two pharmacists, as well as a ban on practicing.

Let us also salute this regional director, who has combined daily work accident benefits with paid professional activity. A fraud which cost Social Security “more than 128,000 euros”. The Nantes court recently ordered him to repay everything. A suspended fine of 10,000 euros was imposed, as well as the confiscation of 86,000 euros seized from his account.
