As our population ages, health care expenditures are an increasingly large part of our nation’s economy. As the government spends more money on Medicaid and Medicare, it is dedicating more resources to combat fraud. Health care providers are required to comply with numerous regulations, such as the Stark Law, anti-kickback laws or the False Claims Act.
As a result, larger numbers of physicians, medical equipment suppliers, clinic owners and clinic employees are finding themselves targeted by federal investigators. Violations of health care laws can have devastating consequences, including the possibility of incarceration.
Fort Lauderdale health care fraud attorney Bruce Udolf has more than three decades of criminal law experience, as both a defense lawyer and a prosecutor at the federal and state levels. This experience is extremely valuable in defending health care fraud and other white collar crime allegations.
Florida Medicare Fraud Attorney
Health care fraud violations can entail a number of actions. One of the more common violations involves “upcoding,” which involves billing the government for a more expensive treatment than that actually provided. Other violations may involve prescribing unnecessary medications, tests or procedures, or overbilling for services performed.
Whatever form the charges may take, our law firm works to develop a comprehensive defense to the allegations. We take a meticulous approach, tracking down any flaws in the government’s evidence that can be capitalized in our defense.
