Gainesville Healthcare Fraud Attorney
Have you been charged with Health Care Fraud?
Healthcare Fraud has to do with using deceptive practices to illegally obtain funds or to conceal financial records. Persons likely to be charged are people working in the healthcare industry such as physicians, hospital managers, nursing home administrators and home healthcare providers. Typical criminal contact includes:
- Billing at an unusually high rate
- Double billing
- Medicare fraud
- Charging for services that were not provided
- False billing
- Providing kickbacks to patients
- Paying doctors for referral
- Alteration of medical records
- Home healthcare aides billing for 25 hours of work per day
- Patients receiving care they do not need
- Physicians having an investment share in a home healthcare agency to which they refer patients
Investigations of these offenses usually come from government agencies at the state or federal level, not the local police department. The investigations are thorough and very invasive and put the targeted person very much at risk of saying the wrong thing, even if his intentions and activities have been innocent. It is therefore important to have the assistance of a Gainesville white collar crime attorney adept at health care fraud defense.
