Medical/Medicare Fraud in Los Angeles
Los Angeles, CA Criminal Defense Lawyer
Medicare fraud is a term that categorizes the act of a company or corporation seeking reimbursement for Medicare health care benefits under false pretenses. While there are many different ways to commit fraud in this way, there is only one goal in each, which is to collect money from the Medicare program illegally and illegitimately. Some of the ways to commit this kind of fraud include phantom billing, patient billing and up-coding scheme and unbundling; each of these methods involves deception.
Penalties for conviction of Medical/Medicare fraud generally consist of repayment of Medicare overpayments, and sometimes include hefty federal fines; in addition a prison term of five years per offense is a potential penalty.
