Why Should My Practice Be Concerned with Medicare Fraud in Detroit?

In Detroit, the existence of the Medicare Fraud Strike Force has caused a drastic increase in the number of Medicare fraud prosecutions against physicians, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers. 

And without a Michigan regulatory compliance lawyer on your side, you could be exposed to severe penalties if you face any of these health care and Medicare fraud allegations:

  • Billing for medically unnecessary services
  • Home health care fraud
  • Billing for services not rendered
  • Pharmacy fraud
  • Upcoding
  • Unbundling
  • Pharmacies not filling medication
  • Pharmacies waiving co-pays
  • Overprescribing
  • Prescribing unnecessary maintenance medications
  • Health care kickbacks

What is the Medicare Fraud Strike Force?

The strike force is comprised of a team of Assistant U.S. Attorneys. These are federal prosecutors specifically trained in investigating and prosecuting Medicare fraud at medical facilities and healthcare practices. In addition, the Strike Force also includes investigators from the Department of Health and Human Services (OIG-HHS) and the FBI. These prosecutors and investigators work as a team, moving from one healthcare fraud investigation to another.

Strike forces are also located in Miami, Los Angeles, California, Texas, Louisiana, Brooklyn, Tampa, Chicago and Dallas.

What Should I Look For in a Medicare Fraud Defense Lawyer?

Medicare fraud defense requires an attorney with detailed-specialized knowledge of ever-changing rules and regulations. Proper defense to a Medicare fraud investigation or indictment can be costly for a doctor if litigated by someone not intimately familiar with Medicare fraud defense and healthcare regulatory compliance, as well as criminal law.

This is not a task that should be entrusted to an attorney who does not regularly practice healthcare fraud.

Properly defending Medicare fraud charges requires knowledge of complex healthcare regulations, meticulous review of thousands of records, thoughtful investigation, a thorough understanding of what goes into healthcare compliance plans, what a false claim accusation entails, and a team of experienced experts.

Early intervention of a skilled medicare fraud attorney who not only can handle your indictment or investigation, but also all related collateral proceedings, will save you time and money, and will provide you peace of mind.
