Our attorneys have handled thousands of cases involving fraud. Health care fraud is one of the many and we have the confidence and experience to help you if you are facing health care fraud charges.
Healthcare Fraud is a crime and can be committed by either the provider or the consumer.
To be charged with the crime of healthcare fraud, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt, that you (as a provider or consumer) intentionally submitted or caused a third party to submit false or misleading information that would be relied on in determining the amount of health care benefits payable.
Some ways you, as a provider, may be charged with health care fraud are: billing for services not actually performed; giving a patient a fake diagnosis to justify tests, surgeries, and procedures that are in actuality not necessary; misrepresenting surgeries performed; billing the patient more than the co-pay amount for services already paid for under the benefit plan.
Some ways you, as a consumer, may be charged with health care fraud are: filing claims for services and medications not received; using someone else’s insurance; forging/altering bills or receipts.
