Health Care Fraud Explained
Federal and state agencies across the board are cracking down on health care fraud. Broadly speaking, health care fraud involves making false statements or engaging in illegal practices for financial gain. While this may make it sound like those who commit health care fraud are serious criminals, the reality is that physicians and other health care industry professionals often find themselves facing health care fraud charges when they have no idea what has gone wrong. Common health care fraud allegations include:
- Billing fraud
- Medicaid and Medicare fraud
- Anti-kickback violations
- False Claims Act violations
Many companies and private practices face charges due to the actions of individual employees. In other cases, physicians, pharmacists, and business owners themselves may be accused of criminal misconduct. Regardless of the situation you are facing, our attorneys can help obtain the best possible outcome in light of the facts at hand.
