As criminal defense attorneys, we realize how easy it is for a prosecutor to indict someone before a grand jury. Having a qualified defense attorney and getting active, pre-emptive legal representation before things get out of hand is essential in health care fraud cases.
Healthcare Fraud includes Medicare Fraud, Medicaid Fraud and Insurance Fraud. It is a complicated area of the law, prosecuted by both Federal and State authorities, who share jurisdiction in this area of the law.
Our attorneys offer solid advice and strong grand jury representation to health care providers. We take steps throughout the process to force prosecutors to earn the introduction of evidence, testimony and charges against our client.
We defend clients charged with:
- Medicare/Medicaid fraud
- Social Security fraud
- Improper/Over billing
- Insurance fraud
- False medical claims
- Claims adjudication fraud
- Improper coding practices
- Taking kickbacks
The Medicare and Medicaid plans are really so complicated and confusing that even experienced doctors, physician’s assistants and medical office administrators inadvertently violate the existing fraud regulations.
Any easy mistake gets acquired with a random review and result in a state or federal investigation. It is vital to employ a criminal defense attorney in the beginning of the probe. Failure to protect your situation correctly can lead to jail time, financial forfeitures, civil RICO lawsuit, as well as losing of medical and professional licenses.
