What initially presents as a simple investigation into billing issues and irregularities is serious, as it often leads to formal indictments. In addition, providers can lose their ability to bill for health care, can have bank accounts frozen and may owe enormous penalties. If you or your business is being investigated for healthcare and/or insurance issues, it is critical that you call an experienced federal criminal lawyer immediately.
The federal criminal justice system is significantly more complicated to navigate than the state court system, and penalties can be much higher. Sentences are based upon the total amount of the fraud. The determination of what is fraud requires an attorney who is experienced in the federal courts.
