Filling out a medical application (form 8500-8) is a stressful event for many of us. The language on the form can be confusing and it’s fairly easy to get tripped up and make a mistake. There is a notably broad distinction between making an honest mistake and making a fraudulent or intentionally false statement. The former can be a simple oversight or imperfect recollection, and the latter involves a fairly strict standard: making a false or inaccurate representation in reference to a material fact with knowledge of the falsity or inaccuracy of the fact.
