Defending You Against Government Insurance Charges

NYC Medicaid & Medicare fraud examples

When billing Medicaid and Medicare, the smallest discrepancy can end in disaster. As the government becomes more aggressive in the pursuit of fraudulence, knowing what can jeopardize your future is crucial. Examples of fraudulent activities include:

  • Filing bogus prescriptions
  • Writing fraudulent scripts
  • Billing for appointments that do not take place
  • Billing for unnecessary medical tests
  • Upcoding or unbundling
  • Double billing to Medicare and private insurance companies
  • Billing for nonexistent patients

If you are a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other healthcare provider, a criminal conviction effectively means a destroyed professional reputation and even license revocation.  If you have been charged with Medicaid and Medicare fraud, you need effective and quality legal representation immediately.
