Defending Doctors, Clinic Owners and Individuals
Many of the people we represent are decent professionals and business people who are attempting to comply with Medicare's antiquated reimbursement system. However, what you see as a billing error or a justifiable billing practice may be viewed as fraud to a government investigator.
Some of the most common Medicaid and Medicare fraud charges involve:
- Infusion therapy for AIDS patients
- Prescriptions for compounded medicines containing special drug formulations for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Prosthetics, wheelchairs and other durable medical equipment that is not seen as medically necessary
