Health Care Fraud Defense Lawyer
Medical providers and billing services generally work hard to stay abreast of current laws and regulations involved in treating patients covered by Medicaid and Medicare. Unfortunately, however, there are always some who skirt the law, such as by:
- Billing for services they did not provide
- Labeling services they provided in misleading ways
- Up-classifying services provided, making them appear more complex in documentation than they were
- Double billing services provided
- Providing kickbacks to providers of durable medical equipment paid for by Medicare and Medicaid, such as wheelchairs and personal care items
Enforcement Agencies Are Sophisticated And Aggressive — If Accused, You Must Fight Back
Through sloppy bookkeeping, whistleblower reports and other means, government agencies often become privy to fraud and abuse of public aid for ostensibly medical purposes. Sophisticated analytics software programs sometimes detect statistical outliers, out-of-the-ordinary billing practices and other indicators of likely fraud. These analytical programs, however, often do not account for reasons for unusual claims statistics, such as:
- Demographic anomalies
- Human error
