A Fraud Investigation Can Cost You Your Business. Don’t Risk It.
When a formal fraud investigation is already underway, my team and I can assist you. I have extensive health care, administrative and regulatory law experience to help clients with the Medicare Fraud Control Unit and FBI agents to keep investigations from leading to disastrous consequences or even criminal charges.
Trying to navigate this process on your own, without qualified legal advice, is the wrong approach. Clients are at risk of the government freezing all Medicare and Medicaid payments. Common consequences also include losing the ability to bill Medicare or Medicaid, losing your state license, losing cash flow and losing your business.
I have experience handling issues involving:
- Medical billing fraud/falsely billing
- Filing claims for false procedures
- Filing claims for falsified patients
- Making up patient problems and illnesses
- Illegal fee sharing
In addition to helping health care providers in the middle of fraud investigations, I work with my clients to preemptively disclose potential issues prior to the onset of an investigation. I will analyze your business practices and advise you on ways to prevent inquiries from becoming full-blown fraud investigations. I am here to help you navigate the maze of health care regulations you face.
