Chicago is recognized as a home to exceptional healthcare providers and services throughout Illinois, the Midwest, and the U.S. Unfortunately, as a major metropolitan area with many individuals utilizing federal and state healthcare program benefits, Chicagoland has also become a major target for healthcare fraud investigation and prosecution.
It has one of the highest rates of federal healthcare fraud indictments in the country — so much so that, since 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has operated a “strike force” to prosecute healthcare fraud in and around Cook County.
And if you’re a Chicago-based physician, pain management specialist, pharmacist, nurse, or chiropractor, and you receive a grand jury subpoena or are contacted by a federal agent for a healthcare fraud investigation, your whole career is at stake.
You could be facing more than just hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and decades of prison time. You also could lose your license. Your business and personal property could be in forfeiture.
That’s why so many Chicagoland healthcare providers have a criminal health care fraud defense lawyer from Chapman Law Group on their side.
We have honed our expertise in defending providers against healthcare fraud charges by obtaining pretrial dismissals, not-guilty verdicts, and beneficial plea agreements in federal courts across the U.S. — from Miami to Detroit, and from Los Angeles and Southern California to Pittsburgh.
We have a unique depth of knowledge of the investigating agencies, their methods of operations, and their weaknesses. We have the tools needed to get the best results for providers accused of Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE, and insurance carrier fraud.
Many of our Chicago health care fraud defense lawyers have earned advanced degrees in healthcare law from Loyola University Chicago School of Law — the top school in the U.S. for health care law.
We know what it takes to win even the most complex healthcare fraud case — because healthcare law is all we do.
As part of our service to you, even before you contact us, we want to help make sense of what healthcare fraud is all about, how investigations take place, and the paths cases can go.
