Medicare and Medicaid are two of the most highly regulated government programs in the United States. There are specific processes that need to be followed when medical professionals submit their bills to the government, and legitimate mistakes can lead to serious criminal charges. If you have been accused of Medicare or Medicaid fraud, having an experienced lawyer can help ensure that your rights are protected.

Our West Chester defense attorneys handle cases at all levels of the Pennsylvania and federal court systems in cases involving overbilling and billing for services not rendered, among others. Our substantial background with these matters puts us in a strong position to provide the effective representation you need.
Dedicated Representation For Any Client Facing Fraud Charges
A conviction for Medicare or Medicaid fraud can result in severe penalties. Not only will the offender be expected to make restitution, it is also possible to face fines for each fraudulent claim and possible jail time. In addition, a person convicted of fraud could be excluded from participation in the program on a temporary or permanent basis.
There are a number of people involved in the Medicare/Medicaid billing process, and any one of them could face charges if the government believes that fraud has occurred. While most people think of physicians as the people most likely to commit Medicare or Medicaid fraud, social workers who oversee the care of elderly patients, the data entry people who process the bills and others are expected to recognize errors or fraudulent practices.
