What Does Health Care Fraud Consist Of?
There are many things law enforcement authorities may try to contend are potential evidence of health care fraud. Authorities may claim you overbilled patients or billed for services that were not actually rendered.
They may claim that you coded some activities upward, to result in more billings. In some cases, they may claim you received or paid kickbacks for improper referrals.
No matter what the specific circumstances are, if allegations of fraud are made against you, you need to get an aggressive defense in place. We can help you gather the documents you need to do this and deal with the authorities on your behalf.
