Is Billing for medical services performed by unsupervised unlicensed personnel considered healthcare fraud?

Billing for unlicensed and unsupervised personnel:

This may include services provided by individuals who lack the skills or proper licenses, or services provided by trainees without the required supervision. For example: if a physician has a technician perform the services, and the business bills the insurance company as if the physician had performed the service. Healthcare employers and healthcare whistleblowers are on the lookout for services performed by unlicensed and unsupervised personnel that generate extra Medicare or insurance compensated revenue dollars.
