Providers suspected of fraud or a false claim can face both criminal and civil charges for Medicaid fraud. Unlike other health law matters, Medicaid fraud cases often progress very quickly and have devastating consequences, if not handled properly and timely.
Often, Medicaid fraud cases are assigned to special prosecutors who are very experienced in fraud and abuse laws. Therefore, providers accused of Medicaid fraud should retain an attorney who is exceptionally experienced in handling Medicaid fraud matters and do so at the earliest opportunity.
Our team of Medicaid fraud defense attorneys includes a former Medicaid fraud prosecutor who is exceptionally experienced in both criminal and civil Medicaid fraud matters. We assist providers with Medicaid audits, investigations, overpayment actions, and civil and criminal actions related to Medicaid fraud.
Our Medicaid fraud team also includes a former Medicare lawyer who is highly knowledgeable in Medicare audits, fraud detection and overpayment actions. We are dedicated to assisting health care providers during audits, fraud investigations and Medicaid fraud actions, and are capable of handling the most complex Medicaid fraud cases.
If a Medicaid fraud lawsuit has been filed against you, our Medicaid fraud attorneys and Medicaid claims compliance professionals will work with you to prepare your defense and protect your interests. Depending on the facts of the case, we may aim to have the case dismissed, or if the evidence is against you, work to achieve a favorable settlement and limit the impact on your career.
