New York Medicare and Medicaid Fraud Lawyer
Manhattan Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Representing Those Facing Healthcare Fraud Charges Throughout the State of New York
Any type of mistake or unusual pattern in dealing with the Medicare or Medicaid system can lead to an investigation for possible Medicare fraud or Medicaid fraud.
Targeting Health Care Providers for Prosecution
Federal authorities are extremely aggressive in investigating and prosecuting health care fraud. The consequences of conviction are serious. You could face stiff fines, loss of your professional license or other health care credential, and incarceration in federal prison. In addition, you may be required to make full restitution of the funds you allegedly obtained through fraud.
If you are under investigation or if you have already been charged with Medicare fraud or Medicaid fraud, do not put your future at risk. Please call The Trainor Law Firm, P.C., for a free consultation at 212-300-6557 or contact us online today.
Defending Those Accused of Health Care Fraud
Our founder, federal criminal defense attorney Craig Trainor, defends doctors, hospitals, clinics, pharmacists, therapists, and other health care providers, suppliers, and facilities that are accused of health care fraud. We also defend individual recipients who are charged with receiving benefits to which they are not entitled.
Often allegations involve some sort of overbilling, billing for procedures that were not performed, or kickbacks. Medicare fraud and Medicaid fraud can include:
- False billing
- Over billing or “upcoding”
- Billing for patients that do not exist
- Submitting multiple bills for the same procedure
- Billing for procedures or services that were not performed
- Billing for unnecessary tests, services, or procedures
- Prescribing unnecessary medications
- Falsifying information, including medical records
- Unlawful receipt of benefits
- Engaging in kickbacks for referrals or prescriptions
- Billing Medicaid or Medicare and private insurance for the same service
- Inflating time spent with a patient
Unintentional Mistakes Are Common
At The Trainor Law Firm, P.C., in Manhattan, we know that well-meaning people can make honest mistakes, especially when faced with systems as complex as Medicare and Medicaid. The processes are cumbersome. The regulations are confusing. Individuals and organizations who intend to do the right thing can easily find themselves under investigation or charged with a crime. In a system this complicated, honest errors are very common.
The prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the errors or patterns of behavior they are concerned about are intentional attempts to defraud Medicare or Medicaid. Often, they just cannot meet that standard.
