goal of the Health Fraud Task Force of California is
to reduce the incidence of health fraud. Health
fraud is any false, misleading, or unproven claim
about the cure, treatment, or prevention of a
disease or medical condition. One means of accomplishing this goal is to provide consumers with
access to information that will assist them in
making informed choices about their own health care,
thereby reducing the likelihood that they will be
victims of health fraud scams. The Task Force
includes representatives from prosecutorial and
regulatory agencies, community-based organizations,
and advocates of both traditional, and
alternative, health care.
