Types of Medicare Fraud

In recent years, federal authorities have intensified their focus on identifying and charging those who they believe to be engaged in committing Medicare fraud.

These cases frequently target health clinics & physicians involving:

  • Allegations of billing for services that were never delivered
  • Inflating bills with regard to costs of the services rendered
  • Delivering medically unnecessary procedures
  • Allegations of financial gain through kickbacks
  • Billing for name brand medications while providing generics

Who will prosecute a Medicare fraud case?

Since authorities have ramped up their investigations into alleged healthcare fraud, certain agencies have begun working together & sharing information to investigate, then prosecute Medicare fraud.

The agencies involved in the process include:

  • The FBI
  • The HHS
  • The DOJ
  • Various other state and local agencies

The defense against these allegations requires a thorough understanding of laws specific to the administration of Medicare, as well as other federal statutes. These include the anti-kickback statute, mail fraud, wire fraud, and other federal laws.

What law did I break?

Social Security Act §1128A (U.S.C §1320a-7a(a)) is the law that prohibits any heath care professional from providing a medical service or item in exchange for greater payment, also known as "kickbacks".
