AVOIDING FRAUD CHARGES

Providers of Medicaid-sponsored services often receive seemingly harmless letters or calls from Medicaid fraud investigators. Do not mistake a request for files to be a simple audit. State and federal authorities cracking down on Medicaid abuse could quietly be gathering evidence against you. While you may not even know you violated the law, you can still be charged.

Do not attempt to address these matters on your own. The likelihood of facing criminal charges for Medicaid fraud often comes down to how the case is handled during the initial investigation. Consultation with a skilled health care fraud attorney is critical. Talk to us before you discuss anything with law enforcement authorities.
