What Is Medicare Fraud?
Medicare fraud involves deceitfully collecting a health care reimbursement from Medicare. An individual or institution can be charged with Medicare fraud for:
- Billing for services or equipment that the accused did not provide/billing for returned medical equipment: Is there evidence of outright billing fraud?
- Billing for unreasonable/unnecessary services: Were the services necessary? If not, they are not billable to Medicare.
- Billing for services performed by unlicensed individuals: Were the services performed by licensed professionals or performed under the immediate supervision of licensed professionals? If not, they are not billable to Medicare.
Defending Against Medicare Fraud Allegations
A strong defense against Medicare fraud requires an attorney who is not only knowledgeable in criminal defense, but also in health care law. At NachtLaw, we are skilled in both areas. We understand that your future is on the line, and we are prepared to do everything we can to safeguard your rights, your livelihood and your freedom.
Blowing The Whistle On Medicare Fraud
Federal and state whistleblower laws protect individuals who report fraudulent activity to the government. Are you considering blowing the whistle on Medicare fraud that you have witnessed or are you the victim of retaliation? We can help ensure that you receive the full protection of the law.
Medicare Compliance Audits
Our Michigan Medicare fraud attorneys help medical professionals and institutions perform audits to ensure that they are in compliance with Medicare guidelines. The cheapest way to run a medical billing business is to make sure you get it right to begin with. If a problem is detected during the Medicare compliance audit, you have a duty to disclose it to Medicare. For example, if you learn that you accidentally billed Medicare for something that is not billable, you will need to disclose this information to Medicare immediately. Ideally, you can do this as a matter of procedure, showing Medicare that you performed the self-audits, found the errors and will correct them. The key is to be able to show that you are an honest medical professional/institution and that this is the only error that has occurred. We can help you analyze your particular situation, determine next steps and act proactively.
