Contacting a practiced criminal defense attorney is essential if you are facing a healthcare fraud investigation. You can face severe fines and up to 10 years imprisonment or both if convicted.

Some types of healthcare fraud include:

  • Billing personal expenses
  • Billing for services/products not delivered
  • Billing for more expensive services/products than were delivered
  • Arranging for and paying or receiving kickbacks
  • Overpricing of services/products
  • Unnecessary treatment
  • Billing items separately that should be billed together
  • Falsifying claims in order to receive payment

Many health care providers are finding themselves having to justify items and services billed to insurance companies and healthcare benefit programs like Medicare .
