Healthcare Fraud is not a crime taken lightly in the state of California. Those accused
of this type of fraud usually face license seizure, overwhelming fines,
and sometime significant jail time. If you find yourself facing health
care fraud charges, it is important to contact a criminal defense attorney with a
proven track record in defending those accused of healthcare fraud.
Doctors, healthcare providers, and patients can be accused of healthcare
fraud. This type of fraud can take various forms and since the accusation
of fraud in itself can be extremely damaging, it is important to understand
the charges against you and your rights.
Some examples of healthcare fraud can be, but are not limited to:
- Doctors or health care providers offering cash or kickbacks for patient referrals
- Patients filing false medical claims with an insurance company
- Knowingly filling out medical insurance forms using false information
- Doctors or healthcare providers who submit false information to "up
charge" an insurance company
New healthcare laws such as those covered in the Affordable Care Act have
left many questioning whether or not they are operating their medical
practice properly under the new law. If you have legal concerns about
how to properly handle patient and medical insurance information, speak
with an attorney as soon as possible.
