Health Care Fraud
Being a successful doctor, hospital or clinic means much more than providing quality medical care. Today, succeeding in health care means, in part,
being able to successfully navigate the incredibly complex web of regulations and procedures that are part of providing medical care to Medicare
and Medicaid recipients. It is all too easy for a doctor, hospital or clinic's legitimate behavior to be misconstrued as health care fraud.
Health care fraud charges are typically the product of lengthy and complex investigations. There is often a whistleblower who is taking action
under the False Claims Act. False Claims Act cases, also known as qui tam cases, provide the whistleblower with a financial reward for coming
forward. The whistleblower can receive a portion of the recovered funds.
Many of these cases have a companion civil case. It is critical as you work to defend yourself against criminal charges that you do not make any
statements or take any action that can harm you in the civil case.
