Medicare/Medicaid Fraud Lawyers in Michigan
Relentlessly Fighting for Clients across Royal Oak for 20+ Years
Medicare and Medicaid fraud can be committed by both consumers and providers. It is generally referred to when an individual or corporation seeks to collect Medicare/Medicaid monetary reimbursements under false pretenses. Basically, the person is attempting to collect money from the government healthcare program illegally. For example, a Medicare provider may bill for unnecessary procedures or a patient may give his doctor his Medicare number in exchange for money.
If you are convicted of Medicare or Medicaid fraud you could possibly face harsh penalties and fines, as well as a mandatory exclusion from your federal healthcare program. Enforcement of Medicare and Medicaid fraud is a joint effort between The Office of the Inspector General, The Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Additionally, each state has its own Medicaid fraud control units.
Since both the federal and state agencies have tremendous power in dealing with fraud in the healthcare industry, you need an attorney experienced in such matters.
