Medicare Fraud Defense Attorney
The financial burden on the state and federal health care budgets has increased the aggressive approach that authorities take in investigating and prosecuting. You need an attorney to even the odds you face.
Medicare fraud is collecting benefits from Medicare when you should not. This could include using false or incorrect information to give the illusion that someone is entitled to benefits or using someone else’s information.
Medicare fraud charges are generally filed against medical professionals, such as doctors, nurse practitioners, or therapists. Often times, even medical secretaries, bookkeepers, or medical billing clerks that work at medical offices or for doctors are also arrested for health care fraud.
Some types of Medicare fraud include:
- Billing for services not delivered
- Performing services that are deemed nonessential
- Overpricing of services/products
- Receipt of kickbacks
- Illegal bundling of services and test to increase fees
- Falsifying claims in order to receive payment
If you or a loved one has been charged with Medicare fraud, you might find yourself facing long-term penalties. It’s best to work with a team that has a proven track record of helping clients fight their charges and protect their reputation.
