Actions Leading to Federal Fraud Charges
Charges of Medicaid and Medicare fraud against providers frequently stem from allegations of overbilling or billing for procedures that were not actually performed. Individuals are also frequently charged with Medicaid and Medicare fraud if they are suspected of receiving benefits to which they are not otherwise entitled.
At David Finn, P.C., we represent both healthcare providers and individuals whose Medicaid and Medicare fraud charges stem from the following accusations:
• False or fraudulent billing
• Over billing
• Billing for phantom patients
• Billing several times for the same procedure
• Falsifying medical information
• Unlawful receipt of benefits
Criminal Intent vs. Honest Mistakes
The government attempts to carefully monitor Medicare and Medicaid billing, and too many errors or mistakes may lead to fraud charges. This is particularly true if there is a pattern of errors or mistakes. However, in order to obtain a conviction, the government must prove that the “errors” were made intentionally or knowingly. Proving this type of intent beyond a reasonable doubt can sometimes prove to be a difficult task for the prosecution, as honest, unintentional mistakes are extremely common when filing paperwork or completing complex billing information.
