Health Care Fraud Charges
Any of the following actions may constitute health care fraud:
- Fraudulent billing
- Medicare fraud
- Medicaid fraud
Many individuals facing charges for health care fraud find themselves in their position unexpectedly. Often, the demands of Medicare and Medicaid on an administrative level become overwhelming. Clients come to our office after attempting to cope with an administrative system they don’t understand.
Civil and Criminal Consequences Are Possible
The civil consequences for a health care fraud conviction are separate from the criminal consequences. Even if criminal prosecution is dismissed, an individual may still face civil fines and debarment (if the defendant has a professional license as a doctor, dentist, pharmacist, or other professional).
Whatever the circumstances of your arrest or charges, we will thoroughly investigate your case to develop a defense that seeks to protect your freedom and professional practice.
