Healthcare Fraud

Healthcare fraud is an area of extensive federal and state enforcement. The practice area involves investigations into the conduct of healthcare providers and their billing practices. Healthcare fraud actions can be either criminal prosecutions or civil enforcement actions. The frauds often impact public health programs such as Medicare, Tricare, and Medicaid. However, some actions arise from the alleged defrauding of private health insurers. Healthcare fraud can present itself in a number of ways. Some of the more common charges include paying kickbacks for patient referrals, upcoding on billing submissions, and billing for services not rendered.
