Among federal crimes, health-care fraud is quite commonly prosecuted across the country, including in Louisiana. This type of fraud often involves health-care providers and professionals such as physicians, dentists, pharmacists and facilities operators as well as ordinary citizens. Those accused of health-care fraud typically face charges of defrauding the federal government’s Medicare and Medicaid programs. Sometimes the only way for a defendant to clear his or her name is through a trial in which defenses can be presented to a judge or jury and prosecutors’ cases and evidence can be challenged.

We often tell those who are accused of federal health-care fraud that establishing a strong criminal defense is critical – in fact, it can be the key to getting charges reduced or even dismissed. Federal courts use sentencing guidelines that can be confusing for anyone who does not have working knowledge of the system. This can lead to potentially poor choices such as entering a plea bargain without exploring other options such as presenting a strong defense or challenging the evidence presented by the prosecution.
