  • $\begingroup$ Are you asking for an actual dataset? Or about methods used to detect fraud? I think it will be exceedingly difficult to get your hands on an actual dataset, as patient confidentiality is critical. Have you tried some competition websites like kaggle or topcoder? They may have datasets from past competitions that you could download. $\endgroup$ – Maddenker Nov 30 '16 at 15:54

You could take the healthcare data (emergency room entrants) ; 24 hours for 884 consecutive days Seasonality in residuals ACF and PACF and manipulate it to incorporate fraudulent activity like false excessive values. In this way you can detect the anomalies that might be hidden to the "eye" thus exposing POSSIBLE fraud or at least some exceptional activity. I have the real-world data and will be glad to share it with you.
