As the cost of health care rises and the political debate over it increases, state and federal government investigations into allegations of fraud and abuse have become more aggressive. If you are under investigation for or accused of health care fraud, it is essential that you protect your rights from overzealous criminal investigators and prosecutors. The health care fraud attorneys at Willey & Chamberlain have the experience and judgment you need.
Health care fraud involves fraudulent schemes to make illegal gains from insurance carriers, including government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. It may also involve overcharging for services, charging for services not rendered or furnishing unnecessary medical care simply for financial gain. Even the most routine billing errors may cause an investigation leading to allegations of fraud. The government aggressively pursues these types of allegations, and many unsuspecting people get caught up in the investigation.
Health care facilities for the young, aged and disabled — such as nursing homes and adult foster care facilities — can become the focus of allegations of fraud, including allegations of vulnerable adult abuse, elder abuse, child abuse, child neglect and billing fraud.
The targets of these investigations may include anyone in the health care field, including:
- Medical Equipment Suppliers
- Pharmaceutical Companies
- Nursing Homes
- Other Facilities
