Are healthcare professionals being targeted in Medicare, Medicaid, and insurance billing fraud investigations?
Yes, they are. The Federal Government has specific prosecutors and specific agencies devoted to recovering government money that they think was illegally taken. Billing practices are often scrutinized by highly sophisticated prosecutors trained just on these types of cases. In addition, federal law also compensates whistleblowers who report suspicious activity and can encourage investigations. Contact a Board Certified criminal trial lawyer if you think you’re under investigation.
