How are providers reimbursed by medicare and medicaid?

i have a presentation about medical fraud, and need to know how defrauders essentially defraud the federal and state government. Is one of them a fixed rate? I know that for one of them there is a resource value unit and its multiplied by other factors such as location and what not. thank you very much, if you could put sources that would be really helpful.
